Few, if any, are directed at people looking to date or already dating someone with a disability. If you do not know how to help with what we are asking, we can teach you along the way! Dan is the perfect example of how that is usually NOT the case. That is, I suspect, as it should be. By the same token, don't assume that simply because someone else is disabled that you'll be a good match either. Ask questions. Wait staff asking my non-disabled date what I wanted for dinner — that killed the mood for sure.
The public usually is prevented from learning these kinds of things, with the mainstream media blocking information from coming out.
What it's like to navigate sex and dating with a physical disability
We already weighed that extra beer or two. Of course many of us are going to talk about it, spread awareness about it, and answer any questions people may have publicly. We do not expect you to treat us any differently than someone else when it comes to being held accountable in relationships, expecting the best from us, and always pushing for the best for the relationship. Notify me of new comments via email. We may need help with certain things, but we do not want you to think helping us is going to be constant for the rest of the relationship, or that we will hold you back. People date!
