Would you date somebody with a disability or multiple disabilities?

These questions are too simple and broad.

Yes, it depends on the disability.

Physical? Maybe. Mental? I doubt it. I already have some serious issues that I can't manage by myself. How am I supposed to manage other people's issues?

I don't date but assuming I did, it would depend on the kind of disability. Anything major and it's a definite no.

Can you elaborate?


So, a Physical problem with their body isn't going to hold me back, short of them having some sort of super contagious disease thats going to kill me off in under 4 years. If they have limited autism, where they have quirks or can't help but do somethings, but they are able to completely understand love and can consent to me loving them and they love me back, I don't see why not. If they have a mental problem where verbal tics come in, or they have difficulty stating things with their mouth because of some sort of vocal/oral problem, wouldnt have a problem as long as the love is there. Even if they had to go poop every 2-3 hours and accidents happen that I needed to assist with cleaning up, I could prob love and marry them if the love was reciprocated--Assuming I loved them too, naturally.


I don't think I would ever fall in love with someone comatose, or someone who had severe retardation to where they couldn't understand what was happening to them because at that point, they can't understand my love and/or my feelings, and they may still interpret love as a friendship thing. If I was to pursue a relationship under those circumstances---I feel that I would be morally wrong and leading them up to a rape scenario, assuming that sex was to follow after the marriage. EVEN IF Sex WAS NOT TO OCCUR, I would still feel very bad about dating a girl/marrying a girl who can't understand my affections towards them on a Low Mental level (Naturally, the dream "why would you love me/I don't understand love 100%) person would not necessarily be off limits.


I Guess what Im saying, is I don't have a problem with disabilities and having to live the rest of my life disadvantaged because of my GF/Wife's disabilities and me having to care for them as long as the capacity for love is present.



READ ABOVE STATEMENT FOR CONTEXT, DO NOT TAKE THE BELOW OUT OF CONTEXT.
I just want to say as a FYI, that I have mentually matured via working Inet Tech Support at a very young age for 300+ companies to be able to be patient and endure and assist people while truly having a smile on my face that comes from the heart throughout all the frustration that may come my way---And is something I can effortlessly apply to real life. This fact contributes severely to the above answer i gave.

It's gotten to the point my boy and I would stay together even if one of us were the opposite sex lmao.

This is really vague. So I'll say for almost all cases, I wouldn't give two fuckin' shits at this point.

depends on what it is but really everyone knows that i have been with someone who has a strong one. mentals he had for sure but i'm talking about a physical, body one.

Yeah that bond where it have gotten so strong it would not matter in most cases if something happend to them.



But I guess many would quit if it would go quite ill over couple of years 10-15 for the most?

I wouldn't have a problem as long as I was in love with them etc.. Nothing stops love. Having said that, I am fairly asexual myself and don't feel attracted enough to anyone to date, well, anyone. Perhaps I just haven't met the right person. It is also likely due to trauma I suffered as a child. Either way, I feel perfectly fine not dating anyone right now, it doesn't affect my life whatsoever. If I ever dated someone I want it to be for love, nothing else, regardless of whether they had a disability or not. Although I suppose a really good friend could talk me into a double date if they were nervous. They better be good at convincing me though, and I probably would never see the guy again afterwards unless he was friend who got talked into it too. Either way, we/I would be more like a third wheel in that situation.

It's not something to completely rule out of considerations about whether to enter a long-term relationship since disabilities can entail substantial financial hardship and emotional burdens for both those who have them and those who live with those who have them, but it also wouldn't be the only factor I'd look at.

I would be open to it as long as they're mentally stable and have a healthy mindset (i.e. they take their medicine, go see their doctor, etc).

It's just a date, after all. If it becomes a problem, stop dating. If it doesn't, fall in love.

I do have a thing for women with prosthetic limbs, though they're not disabled. I find the juxtaposition between flesh and synthetic alluring. So, ya I would.
