  • depends. I dated a guy who had scoliosis as a kid and he couldnt really turn his head all the way due to the surgery and I had no problem with that. We are not all perfect, but I think I would have a limit, of course I would not date a guy who has "Downs Syndrome"
  • I could easily date someone with a physical disability, especially if they were funny and intelligent. +4 (great question)
  • Nobody's Perfect
  • +5 I walk with a cane so no, I do not think of myself as disabled. There are some things I just cant do. So I do not care if someone else has things they cannot do
  • I dated a guy who lost his arm in a car accident. It was crushed so badly that they had to amputate it. It didn't work out though because he couldn't stop feeling sorry for himself and it was all about David David David. So I dumped his ass, but his arm wasn't a problem for me. I could care less.
  • Hi karen anne! Tough question.I would be opento a disability, if the individual was otherwise way cool!
  • Would not be put off at all. I had a paralyzed college room mate who was in a wheelchair. Because of his situation I had the blessing of meeting many of his female friends in wheel chairs and found them smart friendly and also sexually attractive. Yes real people .. so yes I would date a disabled female.
  • Hell, no.
  • i would like to say id have no problem but honestly i know that i would.
  • Absolutely not! I was maried for thirty years to a woman who lost her left leg in her early teens. She was as capable as you and I.
  • At this point in my life, I wouldn't give a damn.
  • Nah.......but for future reference does his downstairs work because I eventually want to have kids. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't date someone it just means that eventually I would want to have all the information.
  • i would never leave my husband, but if i were single and his you know what didnt work, i dont think i could be with him! that might sound horrible but i need intimacy in my relationship, but i would never leave my husband if that were the case because the love i already have for him :)
  • No! I've dated men with physical disabilities,and mine are mental,so I have no quarms about it at all!!!*+6*
  • no never, coz ı love him as he is not because of he has legs or arms or anything else. this is sentimantal.
  • Not at all. I had a pretty big crush on a guy with a disability (he walked with a limp and had to use a cane). I do not know what was wrong with him exactly, but it didn't matter. He was smart and had a nice voice. I wish that I hadn't been too shy to let him know I was interested.
  • Hey I never complain about that Hump on your Back do I?
  • I want a women with good heart and that is the most important thing for me so0 i wont putt off a date with someone having physical disability and i am being honest :)
  • hm i see personality first.
  • I don't want to sound shallow, but maybe a little bit depending on what the disability is. I wouldn't care at all if something is wrong with your limbs. But I might be a little put off if there is some weird disfigurement on your face or you had a hump in the back. Of course, I am only saying this for girls I haven't started dating yet - because lets be honest, initially you can only scope out the personality so much. You also have to go by looks.
  • Actually a blind girl would be perfect. She couldn't see my horrible ugliness.
  • let me tell you a story I dated a guy in a wheel chair in high school. I probably wouldn't have even noticed but he has not come to terms with it yet. its all he ever talked about. it is his excuse for being a prick to everyone. and he claims nobody likes him because he is in a wheelchair. he got my friend expelled because he claimed that my friend pushed him outta his wheelchair. that would be assault and a hate crime. truth is it never happened but everyone believed him because why? he is in a wheelchair. I have no problems dating people with anykind of disability but they have to have a little more humility and not let that disability be their scapegoat or limitations for life.
  • I wouldn't judge on the disability - but I'd judge on the handling of it. I've been through some hard things in my life, so I wouldn't want to be with someone whose worse nightmare involved getting a speeding fine. But if someone can't get over something and get on with their lives, I wouldn't want to be with them. I knew someone in highschool who was very overweight, I have more than one overweight friend and I don't even think about it in a person really. But she used it as an excuse not to do things, or the reason her life was bad and tons of other reasons.
  • depends on the disability. if it is one that means I would have to put in considerable extra effort then I would probably choose not to. but something like her being in a wheelchair, missing her arms or something, no big deal.
  • Yes, its not a nice thing to say but it is the truth. The initial basis of attracting a mate is generally borne out of aesthetically pleasing qualities found in another person, it varies ultimately from person to person as to exactly what they are "into" but as far as I am concerned, I don't ever foresee myself seeing a disabled person as a potential mate.
  • None are born perfect, although too many think they were. . Not at all. My husband was strong and healthy when we married. After 30 years, he developed a brain tumer and had to have surgery. The surgery left him with half of his face paralized causing eating and drinking from a cup or glass very awkward. He didn't choose this and neither did I. After that, dis-abilities don't bother me at all.
  • I suppose it depends what it is, and how severe it is. For most things I don't think I'd have a problem.
  • No, because all that matters is someone's personality. Physical disabilities don't change that.
  • No. I grew up around disabled people and to me, there is nothing strange or weird about them. They are just normal human beings.
