Default Would you date a Disabled person.

Hey guys, this is a thread I do every couple of years to see what peoples reactions would be.

Anyway here it goes;

Right I'm disabled and have dated quite few guys and my sex life is about the same as any guy my age.

I have a disability that is called becker's muscular dystrophy which is a muscular wasting condition, which means I'm getting weaker year by year and sometimes I have to use a wheelchair. This condition doesn't really stop me, I'm back in work after a long period of time away.

My question is would you date a disabled person?

Yes.

I think this might have been asked before and I think another important question to ask is would someone stay with their partner if they became disabled or ended up with health problems. I mean at some point we're going to end up as worm food.

I do worry a lot about my own health and ironically I think the worrying is my biggest problem because I think it is keeping me from enjoying things more.

Only if you were a nice guy that I'd want to hang out with to begin with.

I dated a guy a few times who lost part of his leg in the military. He was having major issues with his prosthesis, so often had to use a wheelchair. I don't see him anymore, nothing to do with his disability, he just turned out to be a total dick.

The way I see it, a disability has nothing to do with who you are as a person. If you're a nice guy and we hit it off, why not?

Just to the people who are not sure they would, please state why you think you cant? Maybe we can help you change your mind?

If he's a kind person I totally would date him, as web developer I can tell you that usually we have two missions developing the front-end and the back-end, the front-end does the first step which is bringing costumer to use the site, however if the back-end is not good, the costumer will leave regardless how amazing the front-end is ! I think it is the same logic here, I wouldn't care about someone being disabled as much as I care about what he has got inside, his personality, his kindness

I would like to think I would. I have to say, however, that the person who says they could not do it, it not necessarily a bad person. Each person has to know their limitations. If they know they could not be a caretaker at some point in time, they are just being honest about it.

Care given? In my case I've already got that sorted as I've got a personal assistant. I don't need a carer.

Why not? Anyone who rejected a disabled person just on the grounds of his disability would be a total dick. As others have said, it depends on personality, not disability.
