Teaser: For nearly a year now, you’ve seen me write about my lack of a love life and my search for one with a physical disability. This week, I got the chance to hear someone else’s story – a story that I could instantly identify with, and one that didn’t make me feel so alone in my aloneness when it comes to all things love. Meet 29-year-old Amanda Wilson from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who has had Cerabral Palsy since birth. I had the chance to chat with her recently about the struggles she faces in dating with disabilities.

oh wow! amazing!
love the photo too!
yay! i'm so glad you had the chance to talk with her!
I'm surprised I haven't mentioned this to you, but in terms of someone who is disabled and thriving, have you ever watched the material of comedian Josh Blue? It is very self-deprecating, he has CP and is also an artist.

I think the choice really depends on the person. One part of me feels like I have to be the one to fish through emails and look at profiles and go on a online dating that I choose because no one knows me better than I do. But another part of me would prefer an expert to match me up with someone and possibly eliminate those people I will not connect with. Maybe someday I will try both to see which works better.
