Yes it does. Anytime I go on a date, my top question for the person is "are you dyslexic?" If they answer yes, I leave immediately, no second chances.

Seriously though, why would that have any affect on the relationship at all?

No.
A guy I know has dyslexia but it doesn’t define him and never affects social ability or intelligence. He’s class like.

Im married to a dyslexic someone will go out for you being you, not what you can and cant do. if they turn their noses up then they not the right type of people who need to be in your life. Its just normal for me to help out with the spelling since we lived together, especially on social media so i'm pretty used to it. I still think its quite cute when he writes out a shopping list and for some parts he can spell it, but others he will spell like he says it and we can still have a good giggle about it together. But yeah, if they don't want to be with you just because your dyslexic then its their loss.

All girls arent the same.
It may put some off and make no difference to others. It could even be a plus if you are not letting it hold you back.
Dyslexics can often be a lot more attuned in other areas. So you might be a much better communicator plus there are also all your other characteristics such as soh, good company, reliable, looks etc which have nothing to do with dyslexia. I think you shouldnt worry about anyone that doesnt take the time to understand or treats you unfairly as you wouldnt wenat to be with such a person anyway.

If you find the right girl, she won't care if you're dyslexic. It's pretty damn shallow to drop someone purely on their dyslexia when you get on really well otherwise.

Not really sure how being dyslexic could be a turn off unless you read each other love letters every night..
