In fact, my disability has pushed me to thrive in the academic, professional, and social aspects of my life.Although I’ve never been in a relationship, I have many experiences and I’m happy to share my story of what it’s like dating as a female amputee.
“I was a senior in high school, and I was looking forward to parties, graduation night and boys.” Introducing her prosthetic leg to potential boyfriends, however, has proved to be a gamble.
If he/she is ready to date, in all likelihood he/she knows well enough to manage their condition too.
Thus don’t be fussy or extra-solicitous towards the person you are dating.
Be prepared As much as you are ready to accept your partner’s appearance, do not expect the same of society at large.
If your partner’s amputation is visible, like the loss of a hand or an arm, it is very likely that there will be stares and whispers from people wherever you go.
