The injury was devastating, but the societal condemnation that came on top of it was worse. In the United States, we were still sterilizing people with disabilities against their will.

In 1976, at the age of 18, I dropped out of college after three semesters and went hitchhiking alone in Europe—to find myself.

It’s not just that I’m 57: I also live with a disability.

I don’t know what to think so I’m going to find out through experiment. Message me for emotional blackmail, trash TV and Herpes. The key appears to be to separate the wheat from the chaff, the dirt from the gold, the meth addict from the naturally skinny, the VD-ridden prostitute from the harmlessly slutty. The good ones are easy to spot, they stand out like the disabled guy at a concert.

Over the next few weeks you’ll be able to read all sorts about my misadventures. Every few weeks, maybe more often, you’re going to get an exciting update on my progress so you can get a behind the scenes look at what it’s like to date with a disability… Listen, the honest reason I’m still single is because I’ve put no effort into finding someone. INSIDER TIP: If you’re worried about your competition, check out their profiles, most of the guys I looked at are nothing special, total douchebags or worse. • The Undateables: what’s it doing for disabled people?

(As new readers come across this post please keep in mind that I wrote it almost three years ago and my overall outlook on the topic as well as a number of related circumstances in my life have changed, as you can read after the post and in the comments below.

Regards.) I’ve teased the topic of dating with a disability a bit in some of my past posts, and it’s a topic that’s already been covered elsewhere on this blog, but I thought that I would finally step up to the plate and provide a guy’s perspective on what it’s like dating with a disability.

In short, it’s very difficult; and stated more accurately it sucks.

The most obvious issue to start with is that having a disability (spinal cord injury quadriplegic) and being in a wheelchair puts me at a major disadvantage with women as compared to able-bodied men.

This is going to be an honest account, every word you read will be true. I’m ambitious, busy and I work from home so I don’t get much chance to meet people. Next time you’ll hear about my first interactions, maybe I’ll have even had a date! • Faiza Siddiqui: my sex life after injury • Disability and TV: is it time for our close up?
