We’re featuring our best relationship stories and advice

love-dating-relationships-375x264Relationships come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes the shapes and sizes include disabilities, big and small. In honor of Valentine’s Day, the Easter Seals blog and Easter Seals website will be spending the month of February exploring the many forms our relationships can take. We’ll have first-hand accounts from the frontlines of relationships with parents, children, siblings, friends, caregivers, partners, relatives, and spouses, all with people living—and loving—with disabilities.

People sometimes ask me if it was difficult to form relationships after losing my sight. My answer is always yes, but then I come back with a question of my own: “Is it ever easy to form solid relationships?” The person and I have a laugh together, and, ironically, a relationship is born.

In the end, I’d say relationships with people who have disabilities are similar to other relationships: they come much easier once people get past questions and concerns and just start communicating. Find out what our other bloggers think by reading their posts about relationships this month. After all, they’re the experts!

And visit Easterseals.com/love for dating and relationship advice and stories. We’ve even got some very unique marriage proposal stories for you, too!
