Dating a girl with a prosthetic leg
I'm 24 and have had moderate success in dating in the past and even had one serious relationship.
However, last year I was diagnosed with Bone cancer and this year beat it, but only after an amputation.
I sometimes worry about other people’s potential reactions — in case it might hurt or annoy him rather than because I give a toss what people think. I feel sad that the disability means he hasn’t always been as confident as he might have been.
And sure, I’ve had moments of sadness and doubt where I’ve thought, Wow, maybe we’ll never be able to take glorious city breaks where we walk round the sights and streets until our feet ache like hell to the point where our cold drink at the bar afterward feels like heaven.
Admittedly, before I met my boyfriend, I didn’t really know anyone who had real mobility problems and hadn’t given people with disabilities much thought, other than briefly thinking that living with a disability must be pretty hard work. My boyfriend may not have all his limbs or fingers, but he’s still a whole human being.
But I still don’t give people with disabilities (as if they’re one big group…) much thought, even though I’m dating someone who qualifies. Consider everyone as individuals with interests, flaws, successes, insecurities and passions, just like everyone else. And whatever happens with us, relationship-wise or otherwise, that won’t change. If the Scope research makes people realize that a bit more, perhaps we can all (especially people my age, please!
The goal of our application is to help people with sexually transmitted diseases like Herpes or HIV to start dating again.

And any insight someone has on the topic of ghosting?The first time my boyfriend took his leg off for sex, it was a little weird. Now, I honestly barely notice – or care ‒ that he has no foot from the left shin down (for which he wears a prosthetic leg). Silence between two people who have nothing in common is awkward.
To answer your next question: he was born with it, due to amniotic band syndrome, which can restrict growth of limbs in the womb and cause other problems such as cleft palate. Incidentally, he also has a corrected club foot, a scar from a corrected cleft lip, issues with his hands — one has just two fingers and a thumb, and the other has four fingers which work fine but look a bit oddly shaped at closer inspection. Nothing much to see here (apart from the fact that he’s also gorgeous). Making a joke and having the other person not laugh at all is awkward. Being with someone who has a disability definitely shouldn’t be awkward.
