This past week in #CPChatNow was festive as always. Members discussed a new book by a disabled author, online dating, and their oldest friendship. This is #CPChatNow co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

#CPChatNow always loves to highlight projects produced by disabled creators. Zach highlighted Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space (Exploded Views) by Amanda Leduc.

zach asks if anyone has heard of amanda leduc's book on fairy tales and disability. blemi tweeted that she is intrigued, zach tweeted the book just came out and he bought the book after checking it out from the library.

Next, Chris asked whether people had success online dating and mentioned he was thinking about joining match.com. Members shared various levels of success, but I wanted to highlight people who have had success to show that finding love with a disability is possible.

chris asks if people have had luck with online dating and said he is thinking about joining match.com. i shared that i am engaged after using okcupid with a picture of me and my fiancee.
lorna tweeted she met her husband on match 11 years ago and that it is a good site for sifting out time wasters and matching.

Finally, #CPChatNow talked about something that’s very important, friends. Members discussed their longest friendship and why they felt it had lasted so long.
