PUSHLiving Social Experiment: Random Strangers Share Thoughts on Dating a Wheelchair User
Goal of this Experiment
To determine how people with disabilities are viewed as dating / love interests.
Random people are selected and shown a headshot image of an attractive man and woman. They are asked if they would “swipe right” which refers to saying YES to a potential connection.
They are then shown the same model, but this time a full body image depicting them as a wheelchair user.
What we discovered may surprise you.
To motivate and empower disabled people to not fear the dating world.

“We know it is just a video and just random people on the street, but if this small video makes you or anybody else who feels uncomfortable entering the dating scene, more confident it was worth doing it. You are beautiful. Never let your disability overshadow your smile. “
