Dating is a weird thing: and being too picky for a cripple?
I get plenty of dates.. this isn't a brag or a boast, I just don't do to badly, but my list of wants in a partner is pretty insane; and even when it looks like I get close to finding that, it always becomes clear that there's an issue with pace and understanding. I can physically keep up, long walks, travel, that kind of thing, but it's tiring, and overall, just makes me feel miserable. I've battled with the idea of dating someone else with a disability. The idea always invokes a ton of cringe, and a failure to adapt to the real world. But my mindset on this is changing. To find someone in a similar position that can still push the envelope when it comes to being open, unique and deeply individual, sounds like it would be an incredible thing.
