    Physical Disability & Dating Again

    I’m a business man, successful father, adventurer and all round good man with mild Cerebral Palsy. I’ve been married twice and had several gfs in the past. I’m back to being single at 57, and facing dating again. My disability doesn’t define me, it’s just a part of who I am. But it always haunts me when I start dating. When do I say something? How do I explain? What will she say? How will she react? I know it’s more fear than anything but I’d like to have some feedback from women around my age, and in general. Thank you.

    Hey man,

    Sounds like you are doing great. You shouldn’t forget how far you have come man.

    I was born with a right hemiplegia and had to learn how to use the whole right side of my both, growing up was challenging especially socially.
    I learnt to overcome my challenges and have since travelled around the world having sex with lots of hots girls.

    If you want to know to say, tell them your story of how far you have come man.
    Girls care about who you are as a person man.
    You are a legend, remember that.

    Dave

    I am spinal cord injured after an accident in early 2005. I was an Effective Cyclist for 43 years. I was a working man for over 35 years. In the sheet metal field until I hurt myself on the job twice. After the 2nd time I decided I wanted to die w/all 10 of my fingers. Then I went into the warehouse/distribution field. Like sailor my disability does not define me. I have asked a woman online to meet me at a classic car show. I arrived about 15 minutes early. She failed to show up. The next day she contacted me through yahoo messenger. I told her how I felt and not to contact me again. While I was at the doctors office w/my pca a woman helped to open the door from the restroom. She saw the NY Rangers headrest cover on my power wheelchair. We talked about hockey. Then she asked me about family. I said something negative about one of my nephews. I asked her to join me for coffee. She said no. Sometimes I feel as though I am undateable. I am 64 and have never had a date.
