This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Would you consider going on The Undateables?

Now.. before you scoff.. I consider myself currently quite undateable.. and have been since early last year due to a major lovely little chronic illness flare-up, but.. why are the contestants so blunt, forward and fruity? :lol:

No, and why should you?

The problem isn't that people are buttholes and would view you as "just someone with a disability". You are obviously more than a disabled adult. But you still are also disabled, and it does present unique challenges in any long term partnership. Most disabled adults get along fine without the assistance of a significant other. But there is almost always some kind of reliance or at least assistance from family.
