What I Learned From Dating A Writer

Dating for me has always been quite the challenge since I do have a condition that most people don’t know much about and it’s hard to explain to some you’re looking to date because not everyone is accepting about it. Luckily I recently met someone who is also wheelchair-bound and also a writer like myself. This inspired me to share what I have learned from dating a writer:

  1. Anything you say may be used for inspiration in their next novel. In the past few months, I’ve learned this the hard way. When having a conversation with JM he often has his iPad on ready to take notes just in case I say something that is funny or embarrassing so that he could use it in a novel.
  2. It’s okay to always be creative and find you’re inner imagination. Whenever JM and I are together, we are always are figuring out new ways we could be creative. Sometimes we goof around to let out our inner child and our creativity in the best way possible.
  3. Writers are the ultimate grammar police. When it comes to dating a writer you have to be P’s and Q’s literally because if not you’ll be in big trouble.
  4. Writers are the best at being romantic and they always find the most creative ways to do so. JM is the most romantic creative person I’ve ever met. He will write me sweet little notes at times or write stories about our journey so far and how we met through advocating for our disabilities via the disability community on twitter.
  5. Writers have the most sensitive and beautiful hearts. JM has the most beautiful heart you could think of. He’s very thoughtful, kind, and sensitive. He expresses his love and his support very well and he tends to go out his way to make sure that everyone around him is okay and loved.
  6. Dating a writer is like writing a romance novel in itself. When you’re dating a writer you tend to feel as if you’re constantly in a Nicholas Sparks novel of a lifetime since you’re consistently on an adventure.
