Are you put off by a DisabilityPage 2 of 2    (1, 2)
It is a bit different, if I loved a person and they fell ill of course I would care for them and look after them, but if I knew I had have to do all that before I went went on a date it is a different kettle of fish.

I hope I am making sense.

No, it wouldn't put me off. Any of us could become disabled at any time - accidents. Would be a very sad lonely world if everyone dismissed disabled people. What would be me off would be if it was a disability that meant the person needed a carer. I could be a carer for someone I was already in a relationship with, should it become necessary. But I couldn't start a relationship like that.

Had a good dance years ago in a club with a bloke in a wheelchair. Swapped numbers and went on a date - I was nervous about it, thinking things like we need to go somewhere without any steps. Had a great night and a few more dates, but we just weren't suited.

Another time, chatted to someone online for a few weeks and on the phone. Got on great. Met up and he had a major limp. Didn't bother me and we had a great day together - but what did annoy me about him was that he didn't mention it. Probably thought if he did, I'd turn him down - but if I was that sort of person, he shouldn't want to meet me anyway. But I would have liked to be forewarned, as it was a bit of a shock.

No, I have 3 disabled children and they are lovely. I would hate anyone to dismiss them for that reason.
