My youngest brother is in his 50s and is wheel-chair bound. In his younger years he did the most - partied hard, socialized often, swam, played basketball, did marathons, travelled, and other things that I am not privy to (I'm surewink grin). So, not all persons with a disability may have problems socially.
He's still single, never married, is employed, owns & drives his own car, owns his own home... but he's not dating the way he once did. Is it still an option?

Ladies, would you date someone like him?

One time it happened by mistake but i'm older now and you never know. I'd like to at least see more in her than the arm she didn't have.

My best friend is paraplegic since his teens. I was best man in his wedding in May. I am disabled and never married (bipolar). It depends on the person, but it's difficult to find someone who has an understanding of such things.

I hope your brother can find someone Didi.

My recent ex had a disability. When you fall for someone you see past it and love them regardless.

As her debilitating condition progressed it became increasingly difficult. Eventually she had to move back to the south coast to be with her family.
It was so sad, when we first met we would go climbing and mountain biking together, but within 18 months she was in a wheelchair. I used to carry her into the pub or into her flat, she never gave up.

Yes, I had actively dated someone with relapsing remitting MS. the disease finally took her years later. Somethings were uncomfortable but manageable.

Wow Ken, didn't know but (from what I know about the Bipolar issue) I can empathize with your struggle. I think that my brother may have given up on marriage, but I still wish that he could find someone who cares enough to take him seriously.

Really Jac? Isn't that dependent upon the type of disability that the person has, and how well he/she manages it?

Nice of you to have overlooked her disability, to see and be with her Gal. It takes patience, understanding and compassion to be with someone with medical issues.heart wings

It was only when she moved south that the NHS came up with a diagnosis. It was a fairly rare condition , dystonia.

It really depends what you expect from her. The disabled people I have had relationships with were usually emotionally mature, and quite capable of having a s*xual relationship.

But my aunt had, had polio so they didn't frighten me.


I remember each relationship with fondness,
