Dating service for handicapped people

I would like to think they have my best interest at heart, but I can’t help but wonder if there is an unconscious fear of suggesting me to certain people.

They might assume if they set me up with someone they know, that person might think they’re playing a mean trick.

When I tried to ask what was wrong with dating a man with a disability, she said, “Come on, Jacob, you know.” I said I didn’t know.

Nine times out of ten if a friend says they have someone I should meet, the person often has a disability.

Even though all my friends’ choices for me have been great, I can’t help but wonder why they are pushing me towards other people with disabilities.

When I called, I was barely able to get one word through before the woman cut me off.

“I don’t think I can help you here, but I have some disability dating websites you can try,” she said. It’s not that I am opposed to them but all the ones I have tried are a) outdated, b) connect you with someone in the middle of another country, c) are filled with college students trying to complete an “interview of a disabled person” term paper or d) filled with people who have fantasies about making love to someone with artificial limbs.

Looking at the situation from my friends’ perspectives, I can understand why they give me this advice.

I think they assume a disabled mate will be able to relate better to someone like me.

The suggestions this woman made about me dating other people with disabilities has surprisingly been made by a lot of my progressive friends.

Whenever I ask for dating tips, some have asked me if I tried dating women with disabilities.

While I often have an easier time talking about same subjects with folks in my community, I also get great support from non-disabled allies.
