  • If I liked his personality, yes.The thing is, I work with students with disabilities and orthopedic impairments, so for me, seeing a wheelchair, etc. doesn't intimidate me. I empathize, not sympathize. I think theissue you may have is that you may have women who will feel sorry for you, and some will want a man who can do things that you are not able to physically. The thing is, if she's mature and dated enough, she will learn that a man is defined for what he does WELL, and how he loves. Its no different than a guy being really short, or unattractive..Its in the eye of the person. Some women will think things will lack in the bedroom, yet, they don't know it could be quite the opposite!--Had a boyfrnd in wheelchair a long time ago. I was tutoring him in college--note taking, and we started as aquaintences, then friends. At first, at felt bad, but then saw all the things he could do..and had to be creative in doing because the community didn't cater to his wheelchair...One day we just felt like we liked each other, and started dating..He was great, and intimate...And I'm 5 11! If you get mad, ego gets defensive because there are things you want to do, but are not able to right now, it will cause greater issues.You are attractive, so I am sure that plus empathy brings them around! There is someone for everyone, and even if you were standing on two feet, it would still be hard dating...it is for everyone!

    • best anwser here.. well said and I totally agree with you

    • thank you..I posted earlier about shorter men and taller women, and my "search" for the right height! Everyone has what they like and what they prefer not...We are all in the dating pot! I don't think its luck of the draw, but it definitely is not like what anyone expects! :))

  • I don't always immediately notice the guy in the wheelchair, but that can go for anyone else as well. Sometimes people just don't notice what is right in from of them. I have worked with disabled people, and have physically disabled loved ones. (I have some limitations of my own). To me, a wheelchair is just something that helps to improve the quality of life, for those who need it. I don't find someone in a wheelchair to be unattractive or a turnoff, at all. It might take a little more effort to connect, because sometimes people can be insecure about the wheelchair, or other mobility aid. it might take a little more work to know them. but it wouldn't be a deal break for me at all. to me, its just like someone with eyeglasses, or braces, or crutches, etc. I can see past the equipment to the actual person. :)

    Alot of people say they wouldn't even consider it..but it makes me wonder what they would do should their loved on suddenly find themselves bound... or should *they* ever end up in that situation. one never really knows how they will react until they are actually in the situation.

  • I have never dated a guy with a disability. But that would never stop me. I believe in giving chances no matter what. From what I can tell from your picture you look quite handsome, If I got to know you who knows what could happen. It's not always about what you're lacking. I always try look beyond the imperfections because they can often times cloud our judgement.

    So to answer your question yes, I would certainly give a guy in a wheel chair a shot. :)

  • The answer to your question is yes. If your a good person and have a good heart that is all that matters not the fact your in a wheelchair, it is what's inside what counts.

  • Well your still a person... So why does a wheelchair make a difference?

    It's all about what a person is like inside not so much on the outside, people fall in love for many reasons and well if someone wouldn't date someone because they are in a wheelchair well shame on them is all I can say.

    But answering your question I would. No doubt about it.

  • Of course, if I fell for someone's personality and I found them attractive, a wheelchair wouldn't put me off, they're still the same person. Not sure if that helps at all

    • i am pretty sure this guy who is in a wheelchair would date a girl in a wheelchair, dryad, if you have a boyfriend he's probably as shallow as you are.

    • Show All
    • seriously...saying wheelchaired breeds is so ignorant!Its comments like that, although you have a right to yur opinion, which makes an attractive man actually post this comment. The realworld means real things happen to ppl, that can be out of their control.If you close your eyes,evryone looks the same,but your WORDS are what speak volumes! Now your words have spoken volumes about YOUR character...and that's sad..More simple: WORDS make people ugly..Now go fix your WOrds..they look a hot mess!

    • coco, tmls response to me was the mess. Look at my post line, the QA never answered my question. You'd be surprised how many disabled people refuse to date someone else just as disabled or even more so. Point is, everyone has their limits, everyone is shallow. Nothing wrong with that in itself, but the way tmls put it was in a bad way.

  • I date whoever I love

  • The fact is about this is that it dosent matter if you're black/white/in a wheelchair/have a disease. None of these things matter because if you truly love someone you accept them for the person they are. I hope you find someone who does!

  • I prefer girls with disabilities, actually. Blind, or deaf, or in a chair. or with a scared face, I just like pragmatic women, and chic who have been through some tough shit are always much more practical and down to Earth than other girls. Unless this sound sick - like I have a fetish or something. You think that could be true?
