quote:Having a disability can sometimes make it harder to find a sexual partner. It can be difficult to socialize and meet people if social events are held in inaccessible buildings. Prejudice can also be an issue, especially in the teenage years for many teenagers, dating seems to be more about "getting" someone who’s seen to be a good "catch" than who you actually want to be with. And sadly, even in adulthood, there are some non-disabled people who can’t imagine anyone with a disability as a possible partner. That’s their loss
I would like to say thanks for saying that. i do have a disablilty and it is hard to find a boyfriend, ive only had 1 and im 14. but ive also been involed with 2 other guys, not sexual. as a disabled person, it does suck that people dont see the real me, and it sad. sometimes i wonder if i will ever get a boyfriend who actually likes me.
