Family is of paramount importance in my life. My parents are happily married and I have an older and younger sister, both of whom I love dearly. Being in the middle b/w two sisters was HELL growing up. My cheeks were constantly red from their relentless pinching and my GI joes were ALWAYS co-mingled with their barbies and american girl dolls but it also meant that I was able to develop a perfect understanding of the complexities of women ;)
I lived in Chicago from 05-10 and tried to practice law there, but after a year of job searching it became clear the smart move was to practice in Ptown, gain some experience and wait for the economy to improve. There are 2 HUGE problems with this; 1) all of my friends are in Chicago; and 2) I fear that my love life is come to an abrupt end! Ptown is tiny. Suffice it to say the good looking, single, mid/late 20's, early 30's population is scant, at best. Hence, the decision to start utilizing the "people shopping" site that is ok cupid.
The most unique thing about me (other than being named Time Magazine's 2006 Person of the Year) is that I've been disabled for 16 years. I'll tell you the story later. I also have some really good fake stories I tell specifically designed to tug at your heart strings and to ensure that I get free drinks at the bar the entire night! Honestly the wheelchair is NO BIG DEAL. I forget I'm in one ALL the time! It only becomes a realization to me when I'm at a mall or restaurant and some snot nosed 5 year old wants to know what kind of car I am.
OK so I LOVE being in a wheelchair. If I had the choice to walk again, I'd turn it down. I'm a much better person because of it. The adversity I faced in my formative years helped mold me in to the man I am today. I truly appreciate my family/friends and I learned to never take anything for granted. I would've been the biggest egomaniac since Zack Morris had this not happened to me. In hindsight, I probably was going down the "dbag" path before my affliction, so I'm thankful that I was steered towards a way more positive direction. I'm also thankful that the extent of my paralysis is the best possible scenerio. I can feel a large % of my legs and can even wiggle my TOES! It really doesn't impede on my life much, hell I even studied abroad in Iceland. Basically,I look like some surfer dude who doesn't particularly like to walk and I can still have kids,which is great as I have Adonis DNA;) Aww NAAAW did he just say that?!?! RED FLAG RED FLAG RED FLAG
So what am I looking for? A smart, funny, sweet, confident lady with whom I can have a meaningful relationship,duh!
Ok so If you're intrigued at all send me a message. Since trying this out, I've found myself adhering to the policy of not making initial contact. I guess I don't want to waste my time writing someone only to find out that she has a problem with dating a dude who is disabled/amazing. Of course, there are certain exceptions to this policy, namely when I view a girl's profile and find it to be so intoxicating that I simply CANNOT NOT say hellooooo;)
Final Pitch- Are you tired of dating the same old arrogant, good looking,"normal" dbag? Then get a hold of me, an arrogant, good looking, reformed dbag! If you haven't dated someone in a wheelchair you should try it at least once in your lifetime.It rocks and rolls (get it).Your friends are going to be SO jealous (thanks Avatar!!!), your grandma will be so proud of you, and I’ve been told it guarantees you a place in heaven...OMG!
