This made me pretty sad because, depite all the good things I have to offer, I don't think no one has ever thought of me in that way. I have tons of friends, people seem to like me genuinely most of the times, I'm really funny, clever, independent... but my experience proves that none of these things matter when you're disabled. Ok, I get it; men don't want to care for their girlfriend. But what puzzles me most is, then why it seems different when it comes to mental issues? I honestly think that it must be far more tricky to deal with them than with a mild physical disability.
I would like to have some answers to understand this, because I really don't get what is so wrong with me. Thank you
I guess people's motivations are driven by prejudices above all, even when they are seeing otherwise. No hope for me or human race then, haha

I don't get it either. If I were a guy I'd go for a woman with a physical disability over someone with mental illness, a person with metal illnesses can harm, you themselves or their children and very often do. Many of them will tell you they wouldn't date a girl with mental illness but that is not true.
I do not know what to say darling, I think you should try looking in the right places for good men, I know it's hard but just try to. Men are very shallow at times, and not even about the right things.
They are weak minded, lazy as your friend suggests and also not very loyal. You just have to find the right one, and the one who will not have you, is just one you shouldn't want either.

As unfortunate as it is, I think it's an 'out of sight, out of mind' issue with guys. It's easy to look past mental conditions because they're not visible, while at the same time, it's impossible to *not* see physical conditions.
Personally, I don't let it stop me, and I've dated disabled girls before. But that's not the case with most other guys.
