3 Myths Of Free Disabled Dating Finally Shattered
The dating scene has for the past many centuries transformed and adapted to the changing environments. We have moved from interracial and transgender dating yet we are considerably skeptical when it comes to dating someone with a physical disability. There are many negative assumptions and stereotype myths that have been persistent in our society for so long. This negativity has finally come to be perceived as the ‘truth’ by many people who have no facts about dating people with disabilities. Here are some of the leading myths which are demystified;
1. Sex life if any will be terrible
First of all, people who are perfectly normal often cry out loud of how miserable their sex lives are. The media has fed us the wrong information of how sex should be like. It is often displayed as an activity only for the physically athlete-like people. Contrary to this, sex is what two loving people share and it does not take a lot to understand that sex is all in the head. With a little imagination and wiliness, sex can be great with your partner irrespective of your physical condition.
In order to enjoy sex whether you are disabled or not, great communication must be in play. More often than not, lack of proper clear communication leads couples drifting apart and hence becoming incompatible sexually.
2. Your life will drag as you will be forced to take care of them
It is not hard to find many people looking at people with disabilities as people who are ‘damaged’. They will perceive them as though they are a bother for a ‘normal’ person and to get involved with them, you really need to sacrifice a lot. An important fact to soak in is that a majority of people with disabilities live full lives which are terrifically satisfying. They have great supportive families, rewarding and progressive careers and an amazing social network. Just like you hire something to do something that you are incapable of doing, a disabled person will do the same.
3. You will not be able to do fun things as a couple
The biggest worry for many people who perceive themselves as normal find people with disabilities as inhibited in countless ways. They will even be afraid to come into contact with these people because they think they might harm them more.
A disabled person may not be a great swimmer, they may not be great bicycle riders or football players but so are many other people who are ‘normal’. The one thing for a person who separates people into ‘normal’ and disabled is to know that for every successful normal doctor, politician, husband, teacher, wife, musician, actor or sailor, there is another one who is disabled and as successful. You only need to open your eyes to the world and realize that a person is not defined by their physical looks and prowess. Every person is different and they are what they are because of their personality, attitude and perception to life. Appreciating these facts makes disabled dating very easy.
