We are examining different types of love through first-person accounts from people who have experienced dating, marriage, intimacy, and friendship with disabilities. Does having a disability make it seem harder to find love? Many of the people we spoke with initially responded “yes.” But once people open up and move past their reservations or doubts, they all agreed that love is love, sometimes messy but usually wonderful. A human being loving another is the most natural thing in the world. It arises from the most fundamental human instinct of all, which is the need to protect the species. However, due to my physical limitations, loving someone was always accompanied by intense pain and fear. I have, however, been in love with a lot of men since I was young and couldn’t fight my natural emotions. It took me a long time to learn how to live naturally without fear, how to express my own emotions, and how to have faith in my own ability to be loved. Since I’ve been in love with my boyfriend for almost three years, I’ve come to the realization that you can’t love anyone else if you can’t love yourself. My first boyfriend and I had a rocky beginning to our relationship because neither of us dared to speak to the other directly. Although it wasn’t crucial for me to appeal to his mind, I was constantly plagued by fear that he would find my tiny, misshapen body physically alluring. I needed to know that he accepted me so badly. As a result, we spent a lot of time discussing eroticism. The woman was treated like a sexual object, and the relationship was stereotypically male/female.
