Dating special needs children
The man is great…consistent in how he treats me, loving, kind, and generous.
If it weren’t for his son I would continue the relationship and see where it leads.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.i find it extreamly hard to find anyone i like and when i do, it seems they don't contact me back or don't like me.i do think if i was just single it would be alot easier or a mummy with a non disabled child, as quite alot of people are already put of knowing you have a child and then knowing that child is disabled seems to put them more of.
there are some really nice people out there who say what a fantastic job your doing, but it's not a job, it's what i do to make my son's life better for him.i am a single mummy at the age of 21 and my son is coming up to 4 this june, he is severly disabled e.g cannot eat, drink, walk, talk, sit, stand, hold his own head, he is like a 3 month old mentally, and his condition is terminal.i've being on this site for the past 2 years and i have met a few guys, from this website, but i find it so hard to date as i only have a break if my son is in respite, which is normally once a week but sometimes he may not go if he's ill, or in question is, how do you date when you have a disabled number one priority before anyone or anything is my son and he will always come first I'm sorry to read that and I hope this doesn't come across as rude or harsh, I'm not a sugar coat type of guy, Amy you have challenges, I mean you're 21 years old , with a disabled child that needs constant care.
It will be life changing if I choose him as a partner, for me and my kids.
I enjoy the freedom I have to travel and enjoy my kids, and this would all change very drastically.
Parenting as a single parent is difficult enough in "normal" circumstances, but when your child has special needs, there's an even greater level of difficulty.
The challenges seem to double, and if there is no support from the other parent, you’re on your own to manage the care of your child with special needs, and sometimes your other children as well.
One is now married and her new husband loves the child like she were his birth child.
Most guys your age has two basic emotions , horny and hungry, you will find very few guys mature enough to even handle your situation, My suggestion for you kiddo is forgo online dating, joint a support group to meet adults in your situation, continuing online dating will only frustrate you, you've said it yourself you've been on here for 2 years met a few guys and no dates or relationships.
You say his condition is terminal, perhaps spend the time with your son as much as possible and when the time is right you can concentrate on dating, I think its a bad idea to attempt dating now IMO, as you mentioned your number one priority is your son, hands down.
Why not join the Parents & Autism dating community and meet others who are facing the same challenges that you are?
Share photos and stories with others who understand what you are going through and when you meet that special someone, get together for some quality time for just the two of you.
