‘I just wanted a way to show my disability but to also tell everyone that I’m fine, I won’t break if you touch me,’ explains Becky.
The project initially started as a way for Becky to explore dating with disability, but slowly turned into a project about self-acceptance and challenging people’s perception of beauty and disabilities.
So look out for this bad boyfriend sign early on, and make sure you avoid like the plague.
You want a guy who jumps up and down and encourages you every step of the way, not a boyfriend who finds a way to turn your sweet success into sour grapes.
Some guys are so narcissistic they won’t even realise they’re doing this, but make no mistake: if he shows ZERO interest in your life, it’s because he’s too self-obsessed to even care. Does he fight dirty and bring up personal information that is completely off-topic?
He gets angry when you innocently talk to the male bartender when you order your drink.
Jealousy and possessiveness are toxic, and can start you down a dangerous path of feeling like you’re constantly having to change your normal behavior just to avoid drama. They mean so much, and yet there are people who just can’t say them.
Which is a powerful concept in itself, as we so rarely see those with disabilities portrayed in a ‘sexy’ way.
