I spoke to someone recently who said that one non-negotiable factor when dating is that the other person must have all their limbs intact.
Although that statement may appear shallow, the person who said it is not.
It will be Interesting to see how many people share the same view.
Are you missing any limbs yourself? Do you feel that you're at a disadvantage when dating?
Please share any experiences you have had good or bad!

I would have no problem dating a guy who was missing a limb and it would not bother me at all. I am slightly biased though as I am a rehab therapist who works specifically with amputees. I'm glad this question is out there, because amputees (especially men) seem to have a lot of difficulty getting past the altered self-image and generally dating is a concern. I choose to work with amputees, one because of their strength to face obstacles, and two, because with today's technology, prosthetic limbs are amazing and can even exceed the performance of a natural limb. Some of the patients I work with are so good with the prosthetic limb that I would not know the difference. I also think a prosthetic arm is amazing and I am fascinated by how it works and the skill level it takes to be able to work it.1
