Dating4Disabled is an online community for people with disabilities.
Our members use our dating service not only to find love, but also friendship.
As a disabled man or woman, the most support usually comes from the family members and closest friends.
At some point, these persons become so overprotective that they don’t even trust the judgment of the disabled person on matters of the heart.
Im not saying you cant find love but its going to be very difficult with your situation. I also have a permanently disabled child, though I did not have to try to date while he was still at home with me, my marriage died after he was under professional care.
All I can say about my own approach to life in general, is that I found that I had to simply accept that I could not have the things that people without my challenges could have.
Since the disabled can rarely invite anyone over without being under the watchful eyes of these overprotective family members, the only choice left for him or her is the special needs dating agency.
With a dating agency, disabled people are availed the opportunity of having a supportive and neutral friend and therefore, stand greater chances of connecting with prospective partners without any family member or friend breathing down their necks.
This type of background will show that you are more of a serious person that is looking for a meaningful relationship. Provide interesting information about yourself, your hobbies, interests and more.
You say his condition is terminal, perhaps spend the time with your son as much as possible and when the time is right you can concentrate on dating, I think its a bad idea to attempt dating now IMO, as you mentioned your number one priority is your son, hands down.
Most guys your age will not understand that, this is why going to a support group is a good idea and be around others who are going through what you're going through, does that make sense?
It's really no different than being born with, or acquiring a personal handicap, or a set of characteristics that the people you would like to be with, don't care for.
Make sure to add details that uniquely describe you and your personality. My father remarried when I was five to a great woman whom I refer as “Mom”, younger brother and sister.
