Dating girl cerebral palsy
On the day of our date, my nerves got the best of my mobility, making me wobble and stumble more than usual.I asked to hold his hand since my trembling legs couldn't keep me balanced. I was an old woman he was helping across the street. I still have the urge to bury my face in my hands when I think back on that moment.By revealing my lack of dating experience, I confirmed some widespread stereotypes about disabled people—that we are sexually incompetent, asexual, or are too infantile for a mature relationship.
But this was not a confession so much as an affirmation.
I look for someone who is from a good family, who has a life plan and a stable career.
I also look for someone who is excited to explore the world and try new things.
Looking back, if I could tell my younger self anything it would be to not worry about rushing into relationships.
I would have told her that once you learn to love yourself above anything else, the love of your life will come along.
