A Solid Foundation
Shannon Wiltse had waited her whole life to find a man who wanted to be more than "just friends." Born with a physical ailment that left her without a left hand or feet, she was able to overcome her disability by finishing college at the top of her class, becoming a successful geneticist and even purchasing her own home. But it was in the dating world that she found the most obstacles. That is, until she tried online dating.
DeWell had been divorced before and had learned that a person's true beauty is on the inside. The process of online dating had allowed him to get to fall for Wiltse's personality without any preconceived notions about her physicality.
After more than five years of dating, the couple finally married this year. Before meeting Wiltse, DeWall says he hadn't ever even had a disabled friend.The beauty of online dating is that it allows you to get to know your mate's personality before jumping to conclusions about his or her looks. You may find yourself falling for someone who isn't your "type" or who you wouldn't have ever noticed while walking down the street or at a bar. So, keep an open mind and take the time to explore new avenues. [Detroit Free-Press]
