Dating, well you know, I was 44 when I had my accident. I was married, I had children, I knew what sex was like, I knew what good sex was. So it wasn't a priority for me, because I was older. To say, "oh my gosh, now I have this spinal cord injury, my life is over, I can't sex," on, and on, and on. Which, of course is not true, because anybody with a spinal cord injury, anybody with anything can have sex, and can enjoy sex. But, dating was not a big thing on my list after my divorce. So I would say, I've had a couple of relationships, but they were, they were never long term, they were for pleasure of someone's company. And they weren't to try to find out whether I could have sex, or how good it would be, or anything like that. It was really to enjoy the person. Now, I have to say that while sex can be very good, it's not the same—for me, for me, for other people, perhaps. But for my body and my sensation, what I'm able to enjoy and feel, it's not the same, but it's good, and that's what's important.
