Would you still date someone if they had a major physical disability?

I did but wouldn't again. The issue was less about their disability, that wasn't too much of a problem.
But because they were in a wheelchair, they didn't get hit on in the past so were insecure about if they were good enough for me, always asking for reassurance etc and tried rushing me into a relationship, invested into me way too much too soon.4
I am now1
How major is major? One leg or one arm I can overlook. More than that or if she’s blind/deaf then no.1
My fiancee has degenerative disc disorder which I'd consider major seeing as it's highly likely she will end up in a wheelchair and I've spent many sleepless nights with her while she's in pain, I knew about it before we started dating and honestly I couldn't give a damn if I loose out on a bit of energy to give the one I love the support they deserve 😎1
Well, it would depend, there could be some situations that would be too tough but overall I don't think it would be anything that would drive me away. Do you have any examples to get into more specifics?1
Might depend on the disability, but I'd like to think yes I would.1
No I need a young girl to take care of me when I'm older1
Sure, I have no problem imagining that.1
My ex, may she rest in peace, was in a wheelchair. So I guess I would.2
Define major to you.
I am willing to date a gal that is blind or deaf, or in a wheelchair1
Yeah I guess1
if i strongly liked them and found them attractive then yea1
I have before it's not bad1
No I wouldn’t I get enough hate just being me not looking for anymore attention1
Yes but I can honestly say if the disability was really bad needing round the clock specialist care it would effect my judgement unless I was already with them when it happened1
Very hard question but if I had to be honest the answer will be NO.
On the other hand I will gladly offer my help to any person with such prtoblems.1
Sure I would. But the kind of problem would play into the decision.1
I don't know.. Does not have any experience 😐1
Sure but I ain't gonna wipe someone ass tho1
It depends on the person.1
i would love to have a deaf, blind, silent top model which lays down naked all day on my bed1
Yes, I would be loyal to the one whom I would love.1
I would have loved to know what this 'major physical disability' is.1

I would if he was independent and didn't rely on someone to care for him. I couldn't enter into a relationship knowing I'd be a guys carer, instead of his partner.
If I was already in a long-term relationship, and i loved him , but he had an accident which caused him to have a severe disability , i'd give him 24/7 care if I had to. I wouldn't turn my back on a guy I loved2
It honestly depends on the disability... but maybe.2
No I would not.1
It depends on the disability.1
If you have to ask yourself then no. You fall in love with them not their disability1
I will say, I am probably not a good caregiver for someone who is quad. But I have never let a physical disability keep me from dating anyone I wanted to. I dated a dwarf up until about a month ago and he was a fine guy.
But I would feel exploitative if I dated someone with the kind of mental disability that makes their IQ very low.1
