No, I've never been in a relationship before, but I really want one though.

If she loves you and cares for you it really shouldn't matter.

Yes I have experienced true love. I had a child with one of my loves 26 years ago. Last sept I married my love. I am lucky to have experienced love more than once.

Yes I have experienced true love. I met my husband 25 years ago and we will be married 22 years this September. When we first started dating I explained that I have SMA may need to be in a wheelchair one day. He said it wouldn’t matter and he was right. I started using a scooter for long trips to the mall or for vacations but after breaking my hip, I use it whenever I’m outdoors. It doesn’t seem to matter to him. He still loves me the same and says I’m the strongest person he knows. We’ve been through a lot of changes (as he has taken on most of the chores) over the years but it has only strengthened our bond. I feel very fortunate to have found my soulmate. SMA doesn’t define me or our relationship.

So i have met a beautiful wonderful woman whom i have gone on a few dates. The problem i am having is, that while she doesn't live super far away...she doesn't really live close either and neither of us drive and we are both limited financially...so cant just pay for Uber to bring her to meet. I am a little hesitant to get closer...i really don't want to put someone i care about into the position of a forced caregiver.
