    Why does me dating a girl in a wheelchair draw so much attention?

    There is this girl that I’ve been seeing for a little while, we really enjoy each other’s company. Strangely enough though, when we hang out we always draw a lot of attention. People start asking stupid questions. Like my ex asked me if she was my sister. People also stare. I’m worried about how it might make her feel, the last thing I want is for her to feel bad about herself, she doesn’t need to. Why can’t people just mind their own buisness?

    This is a tough one…people are naturally drawn to things that don’t follow the “norm.” I hate to say this…but people will always stare. If you really like this girl try to rise above it. Don’t let the spectators bother you. She’s use to people starring, she’s probably had to deal with this for a good portion of her life. Therefore you need to seem unbothered…show her that it doesn’t affect you. Focus on her…that in return will show her that you care and really like her. She will then feel confident in your relationship.
