Hi! My name is Vincent, 23.

I’m an invalid, a cripple. I’ve got a “club foot” because of poliomyelitis I had suffered from when I was very small. Also, I’m “my own person,” as I never got to know my parents and was raised by some distant relatives who had treated me poorly. I never enrolled at the university because I would had never afforded it.

My good friend’s father now employs me as an auto-mechanic, and I’m really good at it. I make enough money to save some as I dream of furthering my education. So I’m not complaining about my current conditions.

The thing is, I’m desperately in love with a girl, my friend’s sister, daughter of the man who gave me my job. We’ve known each other for a quite long time. She’s so sweet, smart and caring. She’s a great girl, and I think she likes me. I dream about her all the time. 

But I guess I’ll never ask her if she would like to be more than friends with me. No one is eager to live with a cripple. Besides, I don’t know how her father and brother would take the news even if there’s something between me and the girl.

What should I do? Should I tell her about my feelings no matter what? Should I leave her alone and allow her to have a normal, healthy partner?

  1. Mr Vincent,disability does not mean inability, being a criple is not a new thing and your condition can not prevent you from achieving what you desire. Do you think there is complete being in this life ,if people off there dresses and see what they are covering you will be happy at your condition. Back to your question. So far the girl is caring and show some affection to,you can equally tell her your plight and you will be surprised. Remove all the inferiority complex that is worrying you. I wish you good luck.
