Again, based on past experience these are more likely to use a man than to love him as they think they can get away with it because of how they look.I suppose that the true disability is being "normal" as 99% of the people in this world are, and the one thing they have in common is that they are absolutely terrified of having to think for themselves and therefore simply do what society tells them to do and become what society wants them to be in order to "fit in".I sit here reading this thread, and I am just sickened, not because I am an amputee, as a matter of fact, I was born this way, yes I am different, but that's not why I write, yeah I've had my share of stares, snicker, snide remarks, I avoid drive thru's as some narrow minded people from the shallow end of the gene pool tend to drop my change into the car when I reach out to take it. Siryaksalot: Yes, they say everybody has a right to be what they are, or what they want.. They all have an opinion, and I think it's our right. In regards to my ex, even though we weren't right to be married to each other she is a very sweet and wonderful woman, and we've maintained a wonderful friendship both before and after the marriage, and i've also dated amputees who were very much into power and who's purpose in a relationship was to hurt the person they loved as this is what gave them pleasure, needless to say those relationships didn't last very long as this is something i have no need to do to others nor will i have it done to me.in retrospect I'm glad that those narrow minded folks who posted negetive thoughts wouldn't date somebody who was different, it acts as a filter for those who are different, you know culls the gene pool in a different sort of way, to those who posted a positive response I applaud you, you have insight , you are wise and secure, to the others may I direct you to the Darwin pages, may you find your reward thereluvcharlie... One woman having leg prosthesis in both legs told me that she had taken some man at her home, and he had found the truth when they went to bed, and she said he was a little bit shocked!!! Ofcourse it feels bad for me as a woman to hear man saying he couldn't date me because of my disability. I haven't met any men like that in my life, so I think that when they see me walking, and limbing a bit, they don't want to know any more details.i have dated 2 different guys in the past who were in wheelchairs (they were on an online dating service and it didn't show it in their pic). In regards to dating or being with one in the future, yes, absolutely, provided my other attractions are met, that she is also a person who knows how to let life be a peaceful and happy thing.Being an amputee does not make anyone more or less datable, or lovable.
on her front stoop is a man with no arms and no legs. "I've gone out with women - one recently - who were emotional amputees... I just wish their disability was as obvious as a limb amputee so I would know to avoud them.
I find the physical differences to be intresting and in some cases they can prove to be very erotic as well, and these are generally people who have overcome challenges and also know what life is about.
The women i have no interest in dating are the thousands of typical common barbie dolls who's profiles are posted on here, who all want the same foolish things and in who's profiles i find no indication of any sort of character or substance of any kind, nor any difference between one and the next.
I know one woman who was born with her arms and legs missing above the elbows and knees.
She is now living with a long term boyfriend, but for a few years she had her own apartment and lived independently, including working a 40 hour work week, and driving to work and back.
