    I've never had a girlfriend before but I have been told by many girls I have a nice personality and that I'm clever. Are they lying when they say this? Because I have never come close to having a girlfriend because I'm disabled

    i've dated someone with spina bifida (he didnt use a wheelchair though).

    like didgeridoo said, it's about confidence, and that is exactly hy i dumped him. he had no confidence and was a fun sponge.

    What exactly is your disability?

    I'd be perfectly prepared to, as long as they were fun to be around. If I was more of a carer than a boyfriend, no chance.

    I might consider it but it'd take convincing. I once saw this one girl in america who was really hot - but she was born with no arms. She learned to use her feet for everything and the best thing she had a nice boyfriend in high school aswell. She looked like a fun, optimistic girl none the less so I suppose as long as the personality is there then disabilites can be looked over.

    Good example - the hunch back of notredame. or Beauty and the beast :P

    No offense, if the personality is good then i'd consider it, but having people stare in the streets and whispering would put me off. I'm really self conscious though.

    It depends what the disability is. I am partially sighted and could not go out with anyone who required me to be their carer.

    Because of a blood problem when I was young doctors had to amputate both my legs. There is a photo in my profile.

    It's obviously initially disconcerting, but it certainly wouldn't put me off once I got to know you. (I'm actually more disconcerted by the fact that you're wearing a tracksuit and smoking. )

    If I were a gal I would'nt be averse to the idea of dating you,not out of pity for your disability though!
    Personally, I would hate anyone to do this to me.
