Would you do it? For me it would depend on what the disability is. Have you ever dated someone with a disability?

My Hubby is disabled. He wasn't when we met, became so after we'd been together about a year. We got married over a year ago and yes, he was disabled then too. He has Degenerative Disc Disease (meaning that the bones in his back and hips are degenerating). There is some adjustments that we had to make but it's worth it. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

yeah i would have to agree , depending on the disability, i remember a seeing a on TV and the woman has no limbs , i was sorta dazed there like " wow they must really love each other ..' well i guess i would still date a woman with a disabilty , i saw a nice looking woman that i know she has sort of a lazy eye but she wears glasses but they help a little bit but she fine overall , i would date her ..thats kinda a disabilty , heck im left handed , and thats been deemed a disabilty wheres my check?!! lol

It all depends an the type of disability. If its just a minor 1 I'll consider it.

we all need love - Man with wheelchair
My heart is made of gold. I still know what I can handle from what I can't. If my man toy were to become sick now. I would be right there by his side. No matter what disability it was. He could be in a wheel chair and I would stick by his side. If I were to be single and meet someone already like this. No I could not go forward with a relationship. I am not built like that. I know my limits with these things. But fr my current love. He will have me right there

I ask myself this question all the time because of my son and his autism. I often wonder how dificult its going to be for my son to have a normal life and do simple things like dating. I hope someone will love and accept him just as much as I do. Also because of my experience with his autism, I think that I would date someone with a disability. I see first hand everyday that all a "disability" does is make you unique and special....and who dosent want to be unique and special ;)

i think that it would depend on a few things one what the disability was and the second thing would have to be defiently if i liked them or loved them enough...becuaes i mean if i loved them or i thought that i could have a good future with them or somethign like that it would be worth it because i wouldn't want someone to just ditch me or somethign like that just because i have a disability or something like that... jhl930

I think for me it would also be based on what type of disability the person suffered from. Would I be mentally and physically strong enough to care for someone who has no use of their legs or arms? I am still young (but am married) but if I weren't, I can't really say that I would be able to handle it. When my grandma was sufferring from cancer it was hard to take care of her. We were NOT going to put her in a nursing home and did everything at home. After going through that with her, I realized what it actually takes to keep them going. I loved my grandma very much, and always will even though she is no longer here, so if I ever met someone that was disabled in this way, I could probably handle it. Love is a very strong weapon and it can make a person push through some of the most difficult obstacles.
