So I mostly use both wheelchair and leg braces together.
Guys into dating paraplegic girls are often into stockings and pantyhose as well.
Since I don’t have any control of my waist or legs my shorter right leg kind of swings first and my left drags the floor just a little as it swings through. I am used to people staring at my legs as I am almost always in a skirt or dress. Now I even like to show the leg braces off a little.
Sometimes my skirts barely cover the thigh straps on the tops of my braces.
I looked too and could see the pink polish on my toenails through my tan pantyhose. This man had to see me pick my leg up with my hands and get my foot back on the footrest of the wheelchair. Sometimes, when I know I have an audience, I put on a little show. I thanked him and pulled my leg up by lifting under one knee. I hooked my toes with the shoe and pulled it onto the heel of my foot. We both made our apologies and started talking about where we were going, what our jobs were, who we knew and things like that. Jeff asked me if would like to watch the game that night with him at a bar a few blocks from the office. I would love to go on a date with this handsome, polite man. I’m also very cautious of guys only interested in dating paraplegic girls.
Now most everyone has seen my legs of course, but I realized at that moment no one at work has ever seen my bare feet. Being in a wheelchair we are a bit more vulnerable.
Not having any feeling in my legs or feet I didn’t know my shoe was off until I noticed the man kept looking down. They like to see how a handicapped girl moves her legs with her hands getting out of a car, and things like that. After the man noticed my red face, he quickly looked away, fumbling around reaching for my shoe. He looked so cute now blushing just as much as I was.Most of the reasons I have been given for not dating paraplegic girls are based on false beliefs.I work in a big wheelchair friendly office building where I have to go from room to room a lot.My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.It’s really not that much difference, but to make up for it most of my shoes have a built-up sole on the right side, and are one size smaller since that foot is smaller.Getting around in my leg braces on crutches is slow and I’ve fallen many times.
