When I use my wheelchair I don’t need a pair of shoes with a build-up. The footrests on my chair are in the middle and close together.
I am a paraplegic, paralyzed from just above my waist down to my feet.
I have been a paraplegic since I was a little girl. My legs are very thin and flaccid, but I still think of myself as attractive, even sexy.
I was on the way to the file room when I took a corner too fast and actually ran into this very handsome man in a suit. Not so much because I ran into him, but when I did, my right foot actually came off the footrest, knocking my shoe off.
Not having any feeling in my legs or feet I didn’t know my shoe was off until I noticed the man kept looking down. They like to see how a handicapped girl moves her legs with her hands getting out of a car, and things like that. After the man noticed my red face, he quickly looked away, fumbling around reaching for my shoe. He looked so cute now blushing just as much as I was.
But if I start offering information about my disability, or ask them about dating paraplegic girls, they seem to get uncomfortable. I am having a very hard time of going from one end of the desirable scale to the other virtually overnight.
My ego is shot to bits as I am constantly passed over.Most of the reasons I have been given for not dating paraplegic girls are based on false beliefs.I work in a big wheelchair friendly office building where I have to go from room to room a lot.I looked too and could see the pink polish on my toenails through my tan pantyhose. This man had to see me pick my leg up with my hands and get my foot back on the footrest of the wheelchair. Sometimes, when I know I have an audience, I put on a little show. I thanked him and pulled my leg up by lifting under one knee. I hooked my toes with the shoe and pulled it onto the heel of my foot. We both made our apologies and started talking about where we were going, what our jobs were, who we knew and things like that. Jeff asked me if would like to watch the game that night with him at a bar a few blocks from the office. I would love to go on a date with this handsome, polite man. I’m also very cautious of guys only interested in dating paraplegic girls.Now most everyone has seen my legs of course, but I realized at that moment no one at work has ever seen my bare feet. Being in a wheelchair we are a bit more vulnerable.Most men say I’m attractive but are not interested in dating paraplegic girls or dating wheelchair girls in general.
