Sherry Nevius, solitary and 52, is seeking a mate with the crucial adjectives — caring, sincere, intelligent, funny. Oh, plus one more thing: disabled.
Created with cerebral palsy, Ms. Nevius runs on the wheelchair. She actually is separate and mobile, but would like to generally meet a guy whom could move alongside her.
“That means we’re on equal ground, ” she stated.
Ms. Nevius has dated a few completely nice able-bodied males, but none seemed happy to take up a relationship that is serious.
“I think they certainly were a bit afraid me, ” she said because they didn’t know how to treat. She lives in Normal, Ill., a city with few solitary males around her age, aside from familiar and confident with impairment.
“It’s hard enough to get somebody with comparable interests, ” she said. “Finding some body O.K. Together with your impairment simply causes it to be harder. ”
