Dating site for parents with special needs children
I got an email from a reader the other day who found a great guy although she’s blind.
I helped another client fall in love and have a baby even though she’s paralyzed from the waist down.
As I was researching the mystery of love and relationships, of what drives couples apart, and what holds them together, etc., I found myself talking with relationship and family counselors, therapists, married couples with special needs children, divorced couples with special needs kids, a pastor, a rabbi, families I didn’t know but who I encountered at various events I attended, etc. Even though we are all so busy with work, with running our kids to various therapies, with maintaining a home, helping with school work, etc., both parties in a romantic relationship MUST find the time to BE in the relationship.
I will share the highlights of what I learned from these experts about making a relationship work—whether you have typical or non-typical children—and maybe, just maybe, you will find yourself inspired to hop on your own path toward true and permanent love. And that includes time for the two of you AND time together with the children as well. You vowed in the beginning of a relationship to always be open and honest with one another. If something within the relationship or something about the other person or the child is an issue, you don’t just disappear or refrain from talking about it.
I caught a lot of flak for this post, in which I empathized with a woman who suffers from debilitating depression, but let her know that men were perfectly entitled to choose a healthy, normally functioning partner instead. Is it fair that women discriminate against short men? Do you think subtracting that from your bank account might have an effect on you?
Do you think that the all-encompassing time-intensive nature of caring for an autistic child might impact your relationship, quality time, siblings, vacations, sitters, and sex drive? Listen, my wife has a cousin who is wheelchair-bound with MS and has a supportive partner.
allows you to easily search and filter profiles for those with disabilities, as well as list your own disability on your profile if you so choose.
Autistic Dating is a completely free online dating and friendship site for people with autism or aspergers.
It was fair of me not to date a former drug addict I met online.If it weren’t for his son I would continue the relationship and see where it leads.But I am having a lot of anxiety about the possibility of committing to him and his child long term.We can parse and say that it’s not someone’s “fault” for being depressed or having an autistic child.
But it doesn’t really change the gravity of the situation for the person who is taking on a loving person’s challenging situation.
Raising him will very likely be quite difficult and stressful.
