I dated a mute girl for some time. I learned sign language and that made moments with her more fun and intimate. Though we broke up after she moved away and we drifted apart. At the time we were sadly way too young and immature to maintain anything long distance.

In short, yes I would. People who are perceived as normal have their own inabilities and facets that could account for a disability of sorts. No one is perfect.

Yes. Most disabilities are quite adorable, I find. Missing limbs, for instance.

The number of people with a fetish for this kind of thing is darn weird.

To be honest, I don't think I could. Depending on the disability, I'm probably not responsible enough to be able to deal with that kind of thing. I know I'm being selfish when I say I would rather be with someone who I could do insane, extreme, physical things with and not have to worry about any health implications. And by that I mean trying shit like bungee jumping.

As for mental disabilities, I guess it depends on the case. As long as it doesn't prevent me doing the things I enjoy, I'm cool with it.

As serious as I can get, and as nicest. I just can't, i'm not trying to sounds like a discriminator, but dating someone with a disability is a lot of mental and physical work.

In my lifetime I have dated women who were bi-polar. Without sounding whiny or snarky these folks are suffering from an illness no person outside of their realm can tolerate over an extended period of time without suffering severe emotional consequences. Past experience has taught me to avoid people afflicted with this debilitating disease presently.

Several years ago I worked with developmentally handicapped and mentally retarded clients while pursuing graduate work in Guidance and Counseling at a Midwestern university (Go, Bears). For the 5 years I was in this field it was the most rewarding work I ever experienced in this lifetime. Although it may seem counter-intuitive most of these clients are aware of their "situation" when normal people consciously avoid them. But these folks have their moments too so it is understandable why not everyone is automatically empathetic when social interaction occurs.

Most of the workers in the field that were not college-trained professionals came from families where a member or members suffered from being born with an unwanted debilitating disease. These people are overworked, underpaid. It is a labor of love for most of them. Some of the guardians who visit and take their offspring home or to an outing are amazing, others deserve death by hanging (I'm serious, there's some real adult dotards and dullards out there). Working around and/or with the handicapped requires dedication, so much so many staffers burn out from the intensity and exasperation. The latter reaction stems from watching clients improve over time, reach a peak, then regress back to day one baseline. I left because of office politics and burnout.

Depends on the disability, they need to not be insane and should be able to do things with me.

I agree with the bipolar thing, I've known so many woman and am related to a couple of them that are totally lost because of that problem, if they don't ruin your life and theirs they aren't happy.

Sure.

I like people better when they don't walk around thinking they're perfect.

I have PTSD and my Girlfriend has bypolar and is Schitzoeffective. But you know just because they have some problems being mental or physical doesn't make them any less human then you. we are human nothing and no one can change that. That being said Yes I would date a woman with a mental and or physical disability because who are we to judge on them for the outer appearance.

i have no problem with physical disability or mental(depends on the degree), they usually have a unique perspective on life. when i was little my school had a program to promote equality, were they would put a small amount of kids in a class with disabled kids. Some were blind, deaf, amputee's, or mentally handicapped. i am proud to say i was in that class and it was one of the best years of my life, i had a crush on a blind girl in my class so i dont see a problem with it if someone does they need to reevaluate their decision.

I have dated someone with a physical disability. It makes me feel bad for them and want to take care of them more.
