To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Easter Seals wanted to raise awareness around the dating, intimacy, marriage and friendship scene for people living—and loving—with disabilities or challenges, like long-distance romance. The non-profit’s new love and relationships series explores love in many forms, through stories of people who have lived and learned:

“My biggest dating advice to anyone with a disability is to love yourself first, respect yourself and be willing to share who you are and where you want to go,” said Cunningham. “Don’t be afraid of rejection and keep the faith. The right person is out there.”
