Online dating for wheelchair users dating your friend with benefits
I am coming from a perspective that, at my age, I don't want to add complexity to my life, and becoming involved with a wheelchair bound person would probability add such complexity.
They should not be concerned about your love life, but if they are, here is a good comeback if you do decide to go against the norm: If I had been in an accident and were in a wheelchair, I suppose you would find it inappropriate for me to find love? If you are a caring parent, you would never think that way about your own child.If you had posed the question to me 30 years ago, I would have answered in the same manner.I would choose a romantic partner who's mental and physical state was near mine to increase the odds of us aging together in similar fashion, and decreasing the odds of long term complexities in the health arena that are the reality of confinement to a wheelchair over the long term (which is a way bigger deal than this statement "it doesn't matter what your physical appearance is like".) That's a very sensible reason--one that my peers (although I am NOT several decades younger than you) had not expressed when I asked them. After a couple of dates he had a problem discerning me, his date, from a caregiver.They forget that no relationship is smooth sailing as the years go by. In the long run, it doesn't matter what your physical appearance is like. Berit "Brit" Brogaard is an author of The Superhuman Mind and the author of That I would become romantically involved with someone in a wheelchair.This is not because I am concerned about family - I am 58 years old, my parents are dead and I don't have children. I am married, but my spouse is 11 years my senior in age, so, statistically, I will probably experience widowhood.
