I’m a 34 year-old, single woman dating in Manhattan. I’ve used a wheelchair since kindergarten. Dating in Manhattan has been an experience which I can hardly wait to tell you all about so I created this blog with the hopes that we can really get into the nitty-gritty of our dating lives, or lack there of. So, I will begin by sharing a recent experience… I just was told by an abled-bodied dude, after our third date and some mild making out, that he couldn’t handle my physical disability but wants to be friends and go out again because he thought I was “fun, sexy, smart, and funny.” Seriously, friends?!? I guess I’m fun, sexy, smart, and funny but not enough to get past the fact that society taught him-it’s not cool to date a disabled girl.
