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..

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
