A few years ago, I used to blog under a different account, It was general ramblings about the things that entered my head, nobody really read it, or took much notice. That was until I published a post called 10 reasons why Dating a Disabled Girl is the best thing you’ll Ever do.

It was a lighthearted piece, and I thought that like all the others it would never be read.

I published the post and thought no more of it.

A few days later, it had gone mental RTs via Twitter, countless shares Facebook and it was
even discussed by Men in my local. So here we are it’s 2014, and I am still single. I thought
I’d give you eligible men 49 reasons why dating me is just amazing..

1 Best Seat in the House

So your new girl is Disabled, . you can expect a lifetime of love and
happiness. Not only that but if she loves music like I do, you will go to gigs. No longer will you have to crane to see the stage. On the cabbage patch is where you will sit, closer than ever to the stage with handy access to the bar!

2 Queue Jumping

OK Wanna go to Alton Towers?.. I can queue jump and fast track us through.. .Just promise me you’ll hold my hand!

3 Water fights

Bizarre as this may may sound but according to government Disabled People are exempt from hose pipe bands. Long hot Summers and a water fight.. How much fun! Oooops you got your shirt wet…

4 Shut up and Drive

I live in the Midlands, we have a toll road that many moan about paying for.. Disabled Girlfriend to the rescue, Free pass lets go for a drive. You gotta fast car? is it
fast enough so we can drive away?

5 Come Fly With Me

Get treated like a VIP at airports… First on the plane and last off we beat the crowds and take it easy

6 Race Ya…

Because racing trolleys in the Supermarket at 2am when drunk is so last season… Wheelchairs are far more superior and don’t have wonky wheeels!

7 Fancy Gadgets

My house is equipped with Gadgets to help me round the house, be it a through floor lift a personal washing toilet, massive wet room or a bed that sits you up, loving me could feel futuristic

8 Determined

I have dealt with massive amounts of crap in my life, whether it be . discrimination or just personal frustration I have always been massively determined,and apparently Men like a Woman who knows her own mind

9 Your Mother is going to Love Me….

The Wheelchair has and always will be a magnet for weirdos, I will head this upto any suitors right now. There is no escaping the fact that I will get accosted and occasionally offended by the odd twat. I am however an expert in remaining polite and and nice, I’m just the kinda girl you could take home to your Mum.

10 Human Shopping Trolley

Never again will have the trolley or basket dilemma, load me up I can fit an ironing board on my knee… No sweat!

11 Inexpensive

Because well my shoes last forever… If I ever by some miracle gain the ability to walk though you may be in big trouble!

12 Just the right height

For passing you items stored in low cupboards… What else did you think??!

13 Be a hero

Prepare to be a Saint, select members of the public will see you with me and think you’re a hero because your . dating a wheelchair user.. Bless ‘em

14 Hob nob

with celebrities Famous folk love a disabled person, it makes them look good and gives a warm fuzzy feeling… If they meet me, they’ll also meet you! Friend to the stars and a gorgeous girl.. Are you Brad Pit??

15 Make your life easier

You may not think that I can teach you how you can make life easier, but I can, Years of finding simple tasks a slight struggle have meant I have done things my own way…
You be surprised what I can open with just my teeth!

16 Get out of boring parties

By claiming access is a problem. No further point needed

17 Never use stairs again

Love in an Elevator was written about me.. Possibly

18 Make Dancing Fun

With the added bonus of wheels we can really impress at Parties… Or, if I maybe so a forward, we’ll have a memorable first dance…

19 Discounts

Discounts, freebies whatever you call em you will never pay full price on a day out again

20 We are geniuses

All the power that should go to my legs has to go somewhere, my boobs and brains bore the brunt.. Mainly my boobs if I’m honest

21 Have a story to tell the kids

Life is never ever boring and I’m sure you will have a million stories that had us in fits of giggles. I promise this to be true

22 I am not pathetic

I’m not a weak pathetic person, even if this list doesn’t convince you life will be great. I am stronger than most and very very resilient

23 We think outside the box

Disabled People are amazing at seeing the bigger picture, there is no problem we can’t face. Depends on the angle you approach it!

24 I can take a joke

Hello… I made a list!

25 Frequent New Cars

Disabled people who qualify for Motibility get to change there cars every three years. I can’t drive so you’ll have too… I may get you a suit and hat….I do like a man in a suit…

26 Talents

I know fluent BSL and can teach you … We can have public conversations in private!

27 Passionate

I am driven and determined, passion sits hand in hand with everything I do, my legs may not work but it will never ever stop me from leading a normal life that is something I am passionate about and I like to think I’m passionate in every aspect of life

28 I’ll never look a mess

Many disabled people plump for comfort over style, Jogger bottoms and no make up.. This will never be me

29 I can stand up for myself (not literally)

I have dealt with enough discrimination to have a cutting remark in response to some jerk though it would be nice to have a gentlemen defend my honor occasionally


I am the first one to poke fun at this situation. I will often pull a leg or two when asked how I became disabled. Saving kids in Africa makes them stand open mouthed

31 Creative

Because having a difficulty makes it easy to be a creative power, difference is good. If you know what I mean

32 We are amazing in a crisis

I honestly amaze myself at the strength and outward calm that washes . over me in times of panic.. Keep calm, because you’re gonna be fine

33 I hate people feeling sorry for me

Don’t call me an inspiration. This is my life and I have never known any different. I am no soldier voluntary fighting in a war

34 RADAR keys

My own keys for public loos. Winner

35 Loyalty

My friends are the best in the world and my family are the greatest in the
universe my loyalty doesn’t stop there, there’s a place for my better half…

36 I’m not bothered about public staring at us

I believe they’ll be staring at us because we are so beautiful together or what a lucky fella you are

37 Life is too short to row

Make love, not war. I know more than out how soon people can leave, through choice or not don’t spend your time miserable. Snog me instead

38 Free Parking

Maybe this should be reason number 1

39 Every day is Orange Wednesday

My Companion gets in free with me on a trip to the cinema… Popcorn is on you…

40 Social Media thinks we’re hot

If this list hasn’t convinced you to ask the girl with a disability out on a date, or tell the guy you like hoe you feel. Take a look at the empowering hashtag #DisabledPeopleAreHot. Universally disabled people are taking ownership of the fact we can be attractive too.

So there ya go…
40 reasons why Dating me is a fantastic idea whatdya think.. Fancy a date?


      1. Lol…wat an article…i never knew benefits dat i get could be put across in such an awesome way….gonna start using it to lure others…..lol..kidding..felt gud…when i was young i never bothered(dated more than 2 dozens female..ahemm…)..but as aged thot too much n demotivated myself…now 32 so gonna reestablish with above mention tactics…yeah..i would like it to sound more mean dat way…
        .neways thanks a ton…

      2. OMG you are the Best…I was not sure if this was real or not maybe you will let me know and I hope you are for Real. My name is Mark Moyer and I really enjoyed reading your (I guess I don’t know what to call it?) Profile and I Love your Positive Look on things and it is said as one thinks one Is… I guess I have my own story too but I will wait till I find out if this is real…. Ok so then if you want to look I have a facebook too, (MarkMoyer2) in Atlanta Ga. Thank you, Mark Moyer

  1. I am disabled through ridding motor bikes then having a bad crash which put me in hospital for a year, I married my wife Jo who is paralysed down the whole left side we have been married for 14 years and together for 18. Most people that see us both always come out with the CRAP oh you can get this for FREE and get into there etc etc and always abuse us they never think about how and what we feel and always seem to think they can talk over us. In short I do understand where you are coming from and what I will say is LOOKS do not count and it all comes down to TWO people understanding each other and learning what the disabilities is and how much worse it can get in later years. But I hope this message finds you well and with the person of your dreams.

  2. Most of those seem to be the reasons why I married my wife (a wheelchar user) and became stepdad to her daughter (a wheelchar user).

  3. Sadly my wife died on New Years eve… But the 4 years we spent together were the best of my life…. She was paraplegic , amputee and spina bifida. But amongst other things… The most beautiful woman anyone could wish to meet

  4. I just met a disabled girl and I think I’m gonna ask her out! I started imagining how things would be and this pretty much says it all! I’m so excited to try things out with her and maybe have the chance to be with such a wonderful woman! Thank you for clearing some of my doubts. I’ll let you know how it goes!

  5. I know a few people all with a different disability. My high school wanted to put all the kids with disabilities into their on class and everyone else in regular classes but I learned by the end of freshmen year that the disabled kids were so much more fun to be around they’re always positive always compassionate and always polite and I spent every study hall and every lunch period hanging out in the class room for the disabled kids. The way my alma mater separates them is wrong and I just wish everyone learned what I learned. On another note this is the first time I’ve evET been on your blog and I really like it I guess I found a new way to spend my nights as an insomniac maybe I’ll find something that inspires lyrics one day.

  6. You rule… It’s hard enough to meet someone without added stresses or hassles. I’ve worked in care for years… I hate peoples attitudes towards people with disabilities.., Ruling someone out cause of their disability is like ruling someone out because of colour… A disability does not make a person.

    N I would totally ask you out if I didn’t live in Scotland 😀

  7. Its not that easy for men we are always looked at like our peckers are useless if were in a chair therefore women walk right by

  8. You are awesome…..I think you are the epitome of confidence and wit. What a brilliant lighthearted post. I can relate to this as I am differently abled too. Thanks for this amazing post.
