Looking for love, in a wheelchair

(Updated: )

Born with cerebral palsy, Alex was bullied as a child. As a teen, he watched peers go on dates, while he struggled with insecurity and raging hormones on his own. Now 33, Alex talks about finding love against all his expectations; his conflicted feelings about sex; and the pain of losing the woman who saw past his disability. 

*Clarification at 1:18 - as a child, Alex was carried and then relied on a walker. He only started using a wheelchair when he started working.
