The aim of this study was to identify the perceived challenges of girls with disabilities about love.

Materials and Methods

The study was a qualitative study and the target population included single girls with physical disabilities aged 18 years and older in Isfahan. Data were obtained through in-depth interviews with 16 girls with physical disabilities who were selected through purposive sampling from two service centers for people with physical disabilities. Data analysis was performed using the Colaizzi method.


The challenges of girls with physical disabilities in the discussion of love are generally divided into two categories of challenges related to the inside and outside world. Internal challenges included personal experiences, fears, beliefs, and psychological defenses, and external challenges included law, culture, suggestions, and advocacy.


People with physical disabilities face challenges related to themselves and society when dealing with love. Paying attention to these challenges can help in empowerment of girls with disabilities.
