Dating when you are disabled
i dont know about the respite but can u increase it? Rather than searching for a potential boyfriend, try to increase your circle of general friends and the rest will usually follow........In this week's installment of Love, Actually, our series exploring the reality of women's sex lives, we hear from Robin, 43, a single woman who's a sex educator and disability advocate, about how her sex and dating life changed after becoming disabled. I wasn't looking for a serious relationship; I was just looking to talk to guys.There are dating sites that match you on compatibility - and once you've built up a relationship online, you may find that there is more acceptance of your circumstances. do you have any family or friends nearby who might be able to help say even to come and babysit at a time when lo would be in bed? could you ask the teachers at school if any of them can do babysitting? Hi I am also a Single Mum with a son of 2 with Downs I dont get to go out often either but one suggestion is to look for parent groups in your area, either for disabled families or single parent families, this way you could meet others in a similar situation who can offer you support, babysit in turns as you get to know and trust each other and go out with you and introduce you to their friends......Stacey, would you like me to message our Special needs supporter to have a look at your thread and give you some input? I'm sure if you explain the situ someone may help out every so often? I have met so many wonderful people this way who aren't worried about your situation because they have been there or are familiar with it...Even if you were a millionaire, I think I'd have a hard time finding you a match. Ten years ago, I didn't feel attractive or lovable.It made me feel like I wasn't worth as much, and this was from somebody who's a professional. Now, thanks to a lot of therapy and the right medication, I am the happiest I've been in my life.I can understand your concerns about internet dating, but if I were you I wouldn't discard it entirely.Yes, there are idiots out there and you'll meet your fair share, (thankfully they'll be virtual). And with a bit of practice, you'll be able to sniff out those you know aren't going to measure up.
I was overwhelmed with learning to adapt to my new body, which doesn't have sensation in some areas; paralysis affects my right hip, leg, and foot.I have met a couple of people on line but when they realise i cant go out at the drop of a hat or that i have a disabled child they run a mile, really dont want to meet anyone on-line, there are to many factors to think of my son being the main one, none of my friends have single friends at the moment and i just feel like im going to be very old and lonely (im 32) life is passing me by and im dreading another xmas and new year on my own.I was just wondering if anyone has any advice and that are in the same sort of situation that i am.Hi all, ive been single for over four years now and im really getting to the point that i want to start a new relationship, i have a six year old son with sever autism and no help, im lucky if i get to go out once every six months, so trying to meet a new man is rather hard, my sons dad has no contact with him so its not like i can ask him to look after him for me so i can go out, i get 4 hours a week respite care so again its hard to meet someone new in four hours.I pend that four hours catching up on things i cant normaly do.
