How many guys or gals would consider dating a physically disabled person?Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

i have epilepsy (aka seizures)


Oh. OK.

Well that's acceptable. I just wouldn't drive with you anywhere and hopefully you don't drive.

And that's a disability you can't usually see so that might be one of the more accepted disabilities in general when it comes to dating and marrying.

I would have no problems being friends with a disabled person.. dating is a different story though.

This is one of those things that I am shallow about. The dating world is enough of a crap shoot already without having to deal with someone being disabled. And yes, I am also one of those kind of people that would probably leave someone who -became- disabled during the course of a relationship. I'm just going to chalk that up to the whole "preferences" idea that people like to hide behind.

With this post you are going to have a real tough time finding a date now. Most people would not want to date such a shallow person.

I'd consider it. I'm not much into physical activities; I don't need someone who can go hiking or dancing or whatever. And I've had a taste of being disabled myself; I broke my ankle, and spent some time in a wheelchair.

I dated a disabled woman for a while and had a different experience. In her profile were the typical woman phrases that almost all women put in: Independent, financially and emotionally stable, blah, blah, blah.

She said she would never date a disabled guy because she wants a guy who would do tasks for her and take her places that she couldn't do or go on her own. So much for being independent. I think everyone throws that word in their profile just so they can say they know a big word. It really has no meaning in most people's profiles. There was also concern about public image because she said she wouldn't want people to see her with another disabled person-two disabled people together. It threw me for a loop hearing a disabled woman saying she would never date a disabled guy. Everyone has preferences and she has hers, so be it.

Seems to me there aren't too many young women who would. I'm totally blind, and I have severe depression, and I've had almost no luck. I would date a woman with a disability if our combined disabilities would work out. Look at my profile, it's kind of sad I haven't had any luck in the last four months of being on here.

I got diagnosed with Epilepsy at age 10 (1970), which resulted in my being sexually fixed in my teens. Being under legal age I had no say in the matter. All the Healthcare system needed was a signature from my parents to do whatever they felt was best.

I also got declaired Unemployable, Not allowed to get a Driver's License, and Not Allowed to get Married. I know the third one sounds stupid, but in 2008 I tried to get a Marriage License for my girlfriend and I (we both had epilepsy), and the Police got involved, sending me to the Sex Offender Program where I was forced to accept that it's wrong. We can be friends, but that's all.

Not Fair!!!

It depends on the diability. I've dated a guy with one arm, and one eye. He treated me better than the other guys that didn't have a disability. You are suppose to love unconditionally but i just can't deal with the mentally disabled.

Most people say no they will not date a disabled person. But, It's easy to say no, until the shoe is on the other foot. Be careful about what you say, because anything could happen to you when you wake up and walk out of your door and cause you to be disabled.

^^^^^^^^^^^

That's true, but if I become disabled physically or mentally, I will not burden someone to date me/have a realtionship with... For I have nothing to bring on the table but my being a heavy baggage for him to carry.
PS
I hope you are still with that guy with one arm and one eye who treat you better than those guys with pair of arms and pair of eyes.. I bid you happiness.

Of course I would. After all, consider that a lot of people are emotionally and physicologically (sic?) handicapped and you cannot see it. You have to investigate to consider your place in the relationship. Same thing here axcept it's upfront and obvious. See it and move on. After all, the brain is the most potent sex organ and if the person you consider dating has character tht you respect, why should extrordinary physical features form a hurdle for you?
