Is your approach to dating pessimistic or realistic?
Read this really interesting article in the NYT recently about a woman with SMA and her difficulties finding love. I like when she said, “But when I have never known someone to fall in love with me, it is easy to take pessimism as realism.”
I felt that. Having never actually been in love I feel similarly to what the author is saying. What may seem pessimistic to others is as real as it gets for me. Dating with a disability is hard. And I think we can all agree on that.
