I would definitely date someone with a physical disability. I myself have a physical mild-cerebral palsy and can understand what it's like not being able to do things. mental disability depends with the same reasons everyone above me have stated.


But, at this point I would date a tree so I don't turn into a 30 year old Wizard lol

technically, i have a mental disability because i have adhd and dyscalculia. but those aren't like really serious or anything.

i wouldn't date anyone with the same mental disabilities and illnesses as me tbh, because i'm Really Bad at dealing with people. i guess it doesn't matter if you're close already and i know the person. idk. i'm not really down with the whole Dating thing ayy

Funny, I thought of Katawa Shoujo the moment I read the title.

But yes, I would date someone with a disability or multiple disabilities.

Yes, I would...but marriage depends. I've dated girls with issues that have prevented me from talking to them, and that's not good.

I can say with 100% honesty that I'd be hesitant to date someone with a physical or mental disability. Though I'm far from cruel or being cold, I am not the most compassionate or patient person out there. In addition, said person would have to be trying to help themselves in improving their state of being. I've dated a number of men who have had physical/mental illnesses but never wanted to take care of them in order to function, so that's a huge factor.

I dated someone with Cystic Fibrosis before. He was a nice guy, we had similar interests and we got along well. Unfortunately, he really had no drive in life, which I partially blame on the disease as most people who have it die before age 30. Still, despite dating him for a couple years, the lack of drive was such a turnoff that I could not spend my life with him.

He already told me he'd be completely gay for me at this point. As for disability, knowing him, it goes both ways.

Would you yes or no ?

Any particular reason why would you date somebody with a disability or multiples disabilities?

Have you ever date somebody with a disability or multiples disabilities?

Me personally, I don't have problem with it. To me love is love.

I think if I where to go out my way to look for... let say a dating site for people with disabilities. I will look for Blind or deaf people to date.

I also must say this. I been playing Katawa shoujo. And I have gotten curious about it. One reason one my sister know sign language. My sister has teach some of it to me but I no good a all but that mostly my fault. I should put more effort into learning it.

By the way. Katawa shoujo is a visual novel where you date girls with disabilities, your MC including has a disability too. I know a few people with a disability also too. Manly the heart one.

Description
Hisao Nakai is a normal high school student, currently in his final year of high school. One day Hisao receives a letter from parties unknown in his locker and waits at the written place for the sender. The person who wrote the letter turns out to be his crush; while speaking to her, he suddenly collapses. He awakes in a hospital bed, and is told by the doctors that the reason he collapsed is due to arrhythmia, a rare heart condition that causes his heartbeat to sometimes become irregular. Due to this, his parents have enrolled him in Yamaku, a school for disabled students of all kinds.

Personally in my opinion is a good visual novel that handles the subject of disabilities very well, and it feel realistic.



Man, that's an interesting question. How far are you in "Katawa Shoujo" novel? As for the question, that's hard for me to answer.

If you connect with someone, you connect. There's no right or wrong answer here.

Just don't overlook people with disabilities. Be a decent human being and you can find at minimum friendship with anybody.

So to actually answer the post, yes I would. I hope that's simple enough.

For those of you saying "Love is love," I say to you: Bullshit.

The main problem with dating someone with a disability is in the initial stages. Do you honestly believe yourself unbiased enough to see a girl in a wheelchair across the room and think to yourself, "I bet she's a great person, I'm going to go over there and talk to her" when there's girls around you who are not disabled? I doubt it.

I've been physically disabled and in a wheelchair for most of my life. I have yet to have a girl develop a crush on me, even though I spent most of my time in school talking to girls. I've asked out dozens of girls, and yet I've never had a date in my life. Reactions generally range from an explanation that I'm "too much like a brother" all the way to the girl looking around the room like she's on Candid Camera and then darting off. At least one girl had the decency to calmly explain to me that she would never be comfortable having a boyfriend that isn't normal.

Forgive me, but I don't believe many of you would, for one instant, go out of your own way to ask someone out that's already disabled.

Eh, my girlfriend was diagnosed with autism a few years ago, but it never really affected our relationship.

Huh? What does being in a wheelchair have to do with being approachable? If I see a girl being friendly with everyone, of course I would think she's a nice person regardless of whether or not she's visibly disabled. Why would that keep me or anyone else from talking to her?

It sounds like you're letting your past experiences cloud your judgement of everyone. Sure there are some people who would turn others down only because of a disability, but not everybody is like that. If somebody is selfish enough to dump someone just because they can no longer walk and they don't even try to be supportive, I highly doubt there was ever any love in that relationship.
