    Just to clarify to anyone who feels bad, choosing no does NOT make you a bad person at all.

    Haha Have to remember to use that on some dating site, "I'm handicapped but my beard makes up for it!"

    Agreed, although dumping the one you love after they become handicapped is kind of a douchemove and superficial.

    It depends. The only thing i would accept is the person being deaf.

    I'm going to be shallow and say no.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.

    Nah.

    Bitches be crazy enough without additional issues to deal with.

    I don't see myself in that position. If I saw a girl with a missing leg at the bar, I probably wouldn't end up talking to her anyway. If I was in a serious relationship, and my partner lost a leg, I think it would be very shallow to leave her, because that's when she would need my support the most.

    So I guess my answer is, that I wouldn't start dating someone with a physical handicap, but I wouldn't leave somoene if they got a severe injury.

    I think you love who you love. That said, some handicaps will be tougher than others to overcome for some.

    Personally, I sometimes can't handle medical deformities. I realize that it is completely absurd, but my mind just starts racing on about the details of the impairment. My head will just start spiraling out of control thinking about how it happened and what exactly happened. I have passed out just thinking about some minor wounds before, I shit you not. I think it may be anxiety related, but I really can't control it. Real blood, not on screen, especially freaks me the fuck out. So I think if there is blood loss involved I sort of process that....idk.

    I wouldn't have an issue if they had a physical handicap. Tried to date a girl who gets round in a wheel chair. She is physically active, smart. By the way she gets around, her chair was not a limit. She was a bit mental though. Got a verbal ass chewing because I bought her dinner for her birthday. Between that and other incidents, I would say anything on a serious mental level would be a deal breaker for me. I mean if they had a speech issue learning disorder, whatever, that wouldn't be a problem. But getting reamed for being nice for a special occasion? Yeah I'm just going to back off.

    I'm not liking the choices.

    I would not go into relationship with someone who is handicapped.
    However I would not divorce my wife if she becomes handicapped - since we're already married, and signed up for better or worse.

    Deaf would be fine, blind would be really difficult... missing limbs well, depends on the limb and how bad it looks I guess.

    It also depends quite a bit on the person.

    I don't really know. I mean... If they're nice and I fall in love with them. Then yes. Although, I can't say if I will or not. My heart must decide.
    Love without pain isn't really romance.
