Dating girl in wheelchair Don't automatically presume we can't have sex 15 things you should know before you date a girl in a wheelchair Dating Paraplegic Girls Sex Love and Wheelchair Relationships 49 REASON WHY DATING A DISABLED GIRL IS A GREAT IDEA

1. Unless we ask, please don't suddenly start pushing us. We know that you mean well, but if you accidently hit someone or something, the embarrassment is all on us.

2. There's no tolerance for time wasters. Have a good long think before you start dating someone who's in a wheelchair because of a genetic reason. Turning round and saying that in the long run you can't be with someone with genetic defects but hey lets' still date and have 'fun', is not going to go down well.

3. There's nothing more mortifying than having your wheels stuck in a door frame. We love spontaneity as much as the next person, however unless you know 100% that your idea is wheelchair friendly, then it's best to press pause and phone to double check first.

4. Never bump us facing forwards down steps! Especially if we are in an older model wheelchair which has no seatbelt. We would much rather not fall out of the chair or with you!

5. Don't let go. If we have asked/trusted you to push us, don't ruin it by letting go down a slope; you may find it entertaining but we will get blisters trying to regain control.

6. Not all dates have to be sedentary. Plenty of wheelchair users take parts in sports adapted for them such as horse riding, basketball, tennis. Think outside of the box.

7. If you have questions, ask us. Often people worry about things like: will they have to help us with personal care (the answer to that is no, if we need it we will have help in place already). If you have questions it's best to get them out in the open rather than dwelling on them.

8. Don't automatically presume we cannot have sex. Many wheelchair users enjoy a very healthy sex life.

9. Expect our friends to be over-protective of us. They've been there for us through the laughter and tears of the previous relationship, and picked us back up from it. Until they see you're here to stay they'll be suspicious.

10. Just because we're in a wheelchair it doesn't mean we can't walk a little bit. Some of us are able to walk short distances on good days. But keep the 'it's a miracle, you've been cured' joke to yourself.

11. We've got moves you haven't seen. Stick some music on and we can happily dance along. Whether that's competitive wheelchair dancing, or just raving in our chair. We still know how to have a good time.

12. We can be fiercely independent. Be patient with us, we're not trying to be difficult or insult you by turning down your offers to help us. It's by being able to achieve the small things, even when it takes us longer than usual, which helps us keep our independence.
