    dating for disabled

    Well I must be feeling sorry for myself posting this. I am generally a positive person and always look on the bright side. I think I must have Spring fever as I'm looking for a mate. It's my own fault as I haven't actively been on the look out and I've been too reclusive on the social front.

    My social circle is restricted as I no longer work and have colleagues to socialise with.


    Having a physical disability is always going to have its downside. My last girlfriend was unlucky as I ended up in hospital two weeks before we were due to go abroad - I'd lost the use of one leg due to trapped nerves - I blame her cowgirl antics in the first place but that's all history now.

    Birthday coming up at the end of the month and decided to splash some cash on a complete new kitchen - well the old one dates back to MFI if you remember them. Decided to buy services in after designing it - what a pain finding reliable trades people - I fitted my own kitchen many moons ago.

    So where can I find thinking women who are slim, younger than I and enjoy a tactile relationship.

    I'm very personable, solvent and easy going. Don't take myself too seriously and enjoy music, culture and good cooking. Happy in my own skin and very creative.

    No doubt I'll regret this message in the morning but if you happen to be female, passionate and disabled with a sense of fun let me know.

    Shock horror she says, lying down and wafting air over her face with a lace hanky - outrageous he should be struck off.

    Time to hit the Egyptian cotton me thinks.

    Should I just roll over and throw me arms and feet in the air or can some gallant women suggest a remedy . . . .

    A new day - the sun is out - it's mild out and I'm going for a Costa before visiting my local all abilities cycling club. That'll blow the cobwebs away and it's a good social meeting place. There's nothing like airing your thoughts when you need to0 - it's quite cathartic.

    I do have hobbies like digital photography but they tend to consist of about 90% men and the occasional wife.

    The trouble is that the simple free things in life like walking in the countryside, fun things like dancing - I can no longer do - I was great at both once.

    I have no problem at all chatting or meeting women. In fact I used to belong to a dining club where a woman would pay a fee to meet me for meals out - usually hi fliers who just wanted male company whilst dining out. I certainly met some very interesting women.

    I even tried internet dating - ever tried to narrow down replies from over 500 women to one - I did and it was fun but distance was a major issue once winter arrived.

    I just want to meet a local lass who has her own place and we can meet up two or three times a week to spend quality time together. That way we have our own space and look forward to meeting up.

    Most social groups are based around walking clubs - and there lies the problem.

    However I do get involved with disability issues and I'm a Trustee /Treasurer on one. I think I'd prefer to meet a disabled woman because I don't have to explain anything about disabling barriers.

    Anyway popping out for lunch then watching Man City have a pop at Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals. lol

    Hello,

    I hope you don't mind me posting but I am a student journalist doing a masters and I am writing an article about disability and dating. After all the publicity after the film The Sessions, The Undatables and Sex of Wheels I have found that there are some disabled people out there who are being taken for a ride by dating agencies/ sex workers etc. Do you know of anyone who has had a bad experience so I can highlight this issue in my article? No names needed. My twitter handle is @tfitzherbert if you want to make sure I am genuine.

    Since you've obviously not always been disabled like most of us on this site, you seem to have had a good life prior to what ever happened to you and i'm sorry that anything did happen to you but be grateful you had it and it also seems you have a pretty good life now and manage to get out and go wherever you want, again most of us on here have mainly just a few family members and maybe 1 or 2 friends from childhood and barely manage to get to the local shops or library once or twice aweek, or the odd event. So I'd say be grateful for the past you've had and the life you have now enjoy it because you might end up getting to the point most of us are at which i hope you don't. If fate as someone in mind for you then I'm sure they'll come along though most disabled women if meet someone they actually feel comfortable with at some point will want more than a casual thing which it appears you want. Maybe go on a none disabled dating site and put in there that you have mobility probs etc that way you can explain to people who contact you what your situation is and what you are looking for before you actually meet them. Goodluck
