Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I was on several dating sites prior to this and do not want to sound too full of myself when I say I was "overwhelmed" with responses. Ironically, I had a marriage proposal the night before I broke my back. Once I had licked my wounds and felt ready to try this again, I posted my profile. I am tiring of hearing how I really do not need to meet anyone who is so low in character, not worthy of,,,,,,,etc, etc. You should seriously be proud of yourself, for your strength and your bravery. But a healthy sex life is an important part of a relationship, and for some people more than others, it can be even more important to them. perhaps it scares guys away for the same reason that women with kids have a hard time attracting men and getting dates. But when they see that you are in a wheelchair, they think it means they are signing up as a nursemaid, and a chairpusher, and a caretaker/babysitter type of thing. I'm just a very honest person, who doesn't BS people or sugarcoat stuff.
I am having a very hard time of going from one end of the desirable scale to the other virtually overnight. To overcome an injury like that is a wonderful thing. But as far as dating, one reason guys might tend to get freaked out, and "run for the hills", could be because they have cncerns that they are about to get involved in a no-sex-possible relationship. Visions of wheeling you everywhere, helping you up and down, and into vehicles, tending to your needs, etc. I'm just speculating, and I hope you know that I know better. Hell, if I were faced with a similar situation, I might think things like that myself, not knowing anything about the woman.
Most men say I’m attractive but are not interested in dating paraplegic girls or dating wheelchair girls in general.

This is the story of how I met Jeff and our first date together. Jeff doesn’t seem to mind dating paraplegic girls or that I’m handicapped. I still can’t believe, if I wasn’t running late for work that day, we may have never met.
Being in a rush, I decided to go in my wheelchair, without the leg braces I usually wear.
