Hi, my name is Rosalind
Hi, my name is Rosalind and I am the mother of Reuben91. I thank all those that kindly wrote back to him when he first wrote, but I don't know how to explain the pain my son is going through. He is even very nervous of reading your replies. Everywhere my son has gone has turned out to be painful and rejecting. I thank @steve51 for replying again offering help. All he wants is a girl to write to. He had that for six and a half years, but in the end the girl didn't want to get to know him romantically. Her mother and I wrote to each other for a while too, and they came to visit us, and we had a wonderful day. In fact the girl didn't want to leave. Can you imagine the confusion my son felt when she didn't want to know. I can assure you it had nothing to with their visit to us. Christmas presents were exchanged after that, it was only when my son explained how he felt about her, did things change. He was heartbroken when she didn't want to know, and has been like that ever since..He tried writing on dating sites and pen friend sites, but there were always money penalties. Like not only did you have to pay to join, but pay to receive a reply, and pay again to see if the person you wrote to had looked at your message. It appears to me, that the more disabled you are, the more money/profit they make out of you. Reuben can only cope with writing to one person. He knows this is a forum, and that many may answer. He is desperate to get back to a girl who would write to him. I have encouraged him to send in some of his photo's to you, he has taken fantastic nature photography's and has been trying to sell his work on Redbubble, a website that puts your photographs or artwork on to products. Unfortunately, there you have to advertise your work all the time, and money comes into that too. Reuben can't do anything unless he knows he can write to a girl.
I am sure you may find this odd or difficult to write to a mother, when her son has written too. But I don't know what else to do @steve51. I don't know what to encourage him with anymore. Can you perhaps suggest something else I can try please?
