Dating site for people with handicaps
Post script: Stephen and Marietta have been married for 15 years. Quadriplegic love lasts and I was about to find out just how long.“Hi, I’m Steve, hope you are settling in ok.” I looked into the sexiest blue eye’s I had ever seen and fell in love at first sight. After chatting for a while he gave me his phone number and told me to call him anytime, if I needed anything, or even if I didn’t. My husband was a violent man who thought nothing of repeatedly raping me. None of this stopped us growing closer and spending time together whenever we could.He said we should grab a coffee back at the garage where everyone went once the night’s work was finished. Long after everyone else had drifted home from the garage Steve and I would still be there talking.“Marietta was looking at me, daring me to talk to her.I couldn’t take my eyes off this amazingly beautiful woman—and her wheelchair. The other half was saying, ‘What is wrong with you, moron? ’” He listened to the smarter half, walked over, and introduced himself.But as lots of men and women like Stephen and Marietta have discovered, just because a relationship is physically challenging, it doesn’t have to be your cue to run for the exits. The heart works just fine, even if some body parts don’t.
Her legs were small compared to the rest of her body. “I was used to suddenly becoming invisible to someone I was interested in.
“I felt like I was crossing a barrier I didn’t even know was there,” Stephen said.
Without a doubt, dating with disabilities presents demands that the majority of people don’t ever have to face.
I took a phone call late one night towards the end of August. Steve explained how he wasn’t sorry about the fling with Kathy, as he had ended his marriage, and that he missed his two son’s.
He felt things with Kathy were going nowhere but she kept talking about their future. I told him there was no easy way and pointed out how during the fling he had neglected work and his friends.
