Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm disabled from a diving accident and am looking for a good woman
to nurse me back to health and complete my other half. Jk, I'm
relatively healthy after 30+ years of SCI and independent as well.
I'm a Career Development Instructor and have been in that
profession for 28 years and attained my degree after my accident.
Got married 6 years after my disability as well, so if you were
wondering, functionality isn't a problem. I also have a son who has
grown up into a fine young man. He's raised now so the old man
would like to take care of some unfinished business. Yup, how'd you
guess, finding that special someone to share a life with. Could you
be her? If so, you'll get dibs with regard to the first ride on my
electric chair lol. ;-)
Anyway, prefer someone who is a Christian with family values. I
enjoy the outdoors and get around pretty well in my specially
equipped van. Fishing and camping out are a couple of my favorite
activities. If you're a sports fan, that's a plus too, Phillies,
Eagles and Flyers!! I'm a good cook and enjoy treating friends and
family whenever there's a gathering. A mutual attractiveness of
mind, body and spirit is what I'm seeking. I look forward to
hearing from that special lady.
By the way, took the Okcupid persona test and came out The "Slow
Dancer" . Go figure that one out lol. ;-P

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wheelchair (well, I couldn't) ;-P
(not necessarily in that order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...why people think because someone's in a wheelchair they get
stereotyped...I do have a son who was conceived after my injury...
and there are individual differences associated with
paralysis...come on people, stay up on things...sorry for the pun
Actually, I think more about living one day at a time...but was
never one for cliches. ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with either family or friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're open minded, compassionate, altruistic, family oriented,
spiritual, enjoy the shore, camping, just hanging out, watching a
movie or grilling and chillin. Sorry, not into the bar scene
anymore but do enjoy Chickie & Petes catching a Phillies or
Eagles game enjoying wings n things.
