  • No I wouldn't.

    Like maybe I would do dyslexia or something mild because I have a friend who has that.

    Other things I wouldn't want I guess. I like strong men.

    See, I want to do things that a person in a wheel chair can't easily do. I want to hike and bike and stuff like that. Plus I want to be in bed with somebody who is fully functioning (just like me).

    I wouldn't date a blind nor a deaf person.

    IMO these people have more in common with others' who have the same handicap.

    I knew a man who's wife was in a car accident and then she ended up in a wheel chair--this is a rather different story. Because what can you do if you already fell in love with the person.

    • I agree with This post

      I know it can be also viewed as selfish, but I need to be able to work out with a guy do activity that required pyshical needs

  • Well someone who doesn't constantly bitch over being and a wheel chair but moves normally and accepts that he maybe might never walk again and just moves on with life, and of course once in a while if he cried about it I wouldn't judge I'd hold him. And yes I need his **** to work ;) Once the person is attractive to me, has a great personality , always goes for what he wants and is honest and faithful. Why not date him?

    • why is this downvoted? seems like an honest thoughtful answer...

  • I wouldn't date someone with a mental handicap. Well, perhaps something like dyslexia or color blindness but nothing that effects their intelligence. I like smart men. I have absolutely no qualms dating an amputee or someone in a wheelchair or anything like that.

  • Well just so much that it doesn't start off as a burden. I'm really not trying to be mean but if you're truly miserable in a relationship then you shouldn't be in one.

    If two people are really in love, it doesn't matter if they're handicapped.

  • It would depend on a few things, mainly lifestyle.

    I wouldn't discriminate based on the handicap but for me to date someone they would have to complement and add to my own lifestyle.

    • same as any dating...

    • Exactly. Although it seems a lot of people don't understand that.

      I keep getting asked out by people with lifestyles are completely opposite to mine. When I say no, I'm a bitch who won't give anyone a chance :)

  • it all depends on the handicap. To be honnest id have trouble dating someone with a mental handicap... but a physical one would probably be ok.

  • I used to have a huge crush on a man that was deaf, ooooh what a great guy he was.

    I, honestly, don't have a lot of contact with people with handicaps. I'm not sure why that is.

    So for that reason, the opportunity doesn't present itself as much.

    If I did meet a great guy with a handicap, of course I'd date him.

    I can't see myself turning down someone simply because of a handicap.

  • if he is a real man, I mean a strong, kind, understanding man.

    then yes I would.

    lets say he couldn't walk in this case.

    but its hard to answer this cause I'm not in the situation.

    i pick guys based on who they are inside!.

  • Depends on the handicap, but ultimately, if I found her sexually desireable and we got along well and my needs were met, yes.

    I remember last year at one point, I was walking along the sidewalk, slight up hill. I got passed by a relatively attractive woman about my age in a wheelchair. I noticed she was pretty, and I was noticing - as I tend to with both males and females - how you know, using the manual chair vs a power chair she was slim and in good shape. And as she wheeled away I was watching her grip on the wheels and her arms were really toned you know ...

    and I thought damn she must be able to give good handjobs. Strong hands, good endurance ...

    I'm assuming lusting for the handicapped is a good thing, right? They can be sexy too?

    Hopefully I'm going to heaven for saying this ...

    • you are probably right... to there is no wrong answer I'm just curious... I have perefrence too... I won't date some one who is a bitch...

  • Only 0.4 percent of the population are in wheel chairs and most of those are the elderly. To be frank, I've never really know a girl in my age range in a wheel chair. It's would be highly unlikely on statistics alone. I think I'd want someone that could keep up with my active and adventurous lifestyle, so it would probably cause conflicts.

  • I had a sort of "friends with benefits" relationship with a girl that was confined to a wheelchair for a number of years. It was mutually beneficial, and we remain friends to this day.

  • Seeing how I was born half deaf, therefore, handicapped . . . it would be pretty messed up if I choose not to be with someone simply because they have a handicap. I will say, that if the person is mentally handicapped (before I get to know them) then I won't date them since I won't be attracted to them. Kind of hard to date someone you're not attracted too. However, if a person I was dating became mentally handicap . . . I will definitely try and stick it out for the long haul.

    With a handicap like mine, where I am just half deaf . . . no one can tell that I am handicapped until I tell them. Half the time, when I tell someone they don't believe me. At least that's the way it was back in high school. I guess one could argue that being half deaf is to being completely deaf as a person who can't see without glasses is to a person that is just completely blind.

  • Depends on what their handicap is.. but honestly probably not.

    Unless I felt a huge connection between us, I don't think I could do it.
