Dating after Spinal Cord Injury

Who would want to date someone in a wheelchair? How will I ever find someone who will want to be with me? Will I ever feel attractive again?

Those are among some of the most common questions and worries for people with spinal cord injuries. You may feel as though part of your identity and sexuality were taken away. However, for those who make the transition to their new life with a positive attitude, meeting and dating new people can be uplifting, even healing.
