yes as stated above or do you think the communication barrier would be too hard to overcome?

Some really shallow comments on here!
So..I realize this post is a little outdated, but I can't resist offering my 2-cents, so here goes..
I have been in a relationship with a wonderful, intelligent, funny, and handsome boy for almost 4 years now, and he is legally blind, as in he has no vision in one of his eyes, and very little in his other. He also has Type one Diabetes. It's been hard, but we deal.
We are both 17. Meaning, we started dating at the age of 14, if you could call it that--for it was more of a bond than anything else, a way to hold on to each other. He would tell me even before then that he loved me, that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, that if it were up to him, he would never let me go; and he still tells me that. We tell each other we love each other several times a day, every day. Before him, I had a hard time believing love existed for me. I certaintly did not believe in such a thing as "soul mates." But now we are engaged, and I couldn't be happier. I know, I know..*engaged at 17.* He is my best friend before anything, and then the love of my life after that. We see movies together, cook together, play boardgames, go bicycle riding together. We share the same political and religious beliefs. Our love outweighs any typical teenage romance, and I sincerely mean that: to map out your entire future with someone else before even the subject of dating comes up. That means you don't need a name for it--you just know that you were made for that person. And another thing--we've been together for 4 years and the subject of sex hasn't even come up. That's love. And I'm glad it's that way! We are romanticaly attracted to one another, while at the same time we realize that we're best friends before anything. We're in this together.
People can say they wouldn't date someone if they were blind, deaf, etc., but in the end it really counts on how much you love that person. Then after that, love really is blind..but in a good way! (And I see the irony in that remark, BTW.) So that is my answer. :-)0
