I can't pass it on to anyone, if I ever have children it's highly unlikely that they would have MD, it's not fatal and I will still be "all there" mentally but I will struggle with using my arms and legs.
Would you date someone knowing this? I feel like I will be alone forever.

I feel so sorry for you!
Anyway, I would definitely date someone with a disease. A disease doesn't define a person, and it usually doesn't change the way you look. It would be a bit of a challenge but I could do it! There may be some severe diseases which I couldn't deal with but Duchenne's Muscular Dystropy isn't one of them. I would date a girl in your situation.
Don't lose hope! Be confident and try to find a guy. I know most guys tend to be shallow idiots but not all of them.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I would consider dating someone like this if I were with them before he were diagnosed. (That way I probably have feelings for him and it wouldn't be easy for me to walk away).
I'd love him.
I'd care for him.
We'd pretty much be in this together.
I wouldn't seek someone out with a disease like this.
I wouldn't want to extremely alter my life by taking on a responsibility I do not have to.
We are talking about a life change here...
I know a lot of people here will answer, "Yes".
But realistically, you can base whether that is true or not off of your own experience.
I don't like to sugar coat,
The reality of it is you are up for a challenge in the dating world.
But to a point we all are.
You do not have to disclose your illness to people right away (unless it becomes very apparent).
You will meet someone that will see past this and care for you.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
