I would. No matter what the disability is, though only if we have mutual feelings of course.

I have. You folks do realize how wide of a spectrum there are with disabilities, right? Epilepsy is even considered a disability.

I would repeat what most have said, namely that it depends on the extent of the disability.

I don't think that there are many people who would refuse to date someone because of a disability if they truly loved them. People might just be more inclined to overlook such people initially (although i'm not even so sure about that, depending on the kind of person). But, as its been said, if the disability is to such an extent that it makes a connection too difficult or impossible, then i think that most would probably refuse. As much as it pains me to say it, I probably would as well. But if i could still communicate and connect, i see absolutely no reason to deny someone because of a disability.

I'm actually technically disabled in the sense that I'm legally blind. (I can still see, but my vision is so very poor that for purposes of the state, I am blind). I don't feel like i have encountered anyone so shallow that they would refuse me just because of that. However, i've never actually been on a date, but i attribute that more to my personality than my disability.

I was just thinking that.


To be honest, I think it depends on what the disability is. I'm not going to say anymore than that.

If I can get along with them just fine, why not? I enjoy conversations, so as long as there is no communication barrier, then it won't really matter. I think it would be difficult to date someone with a mental disability, but if they're willing to try, I'd give them a chance... The only real barrier is my own feelings, not my / their disability.

I would definitely. I know perfectly well what its like having a mental disability. Makes me a little frustrated some people equals many common mental illnesses with being completely nuts. Most of us schizophrenics live completely normal lives and it is very few who acts violent or "crazy".

I'm glad the guys I've dated didn't care about my disability, as I said the majority are perfectly sane and never should we be defined by our illness, but the persons we are, the illnesses are just a part of us. Many went through hell and high water to learn to live with it, as with any disability I imagine.
