I will be honest, dating and luck with the ladies has never been a strongsuit of mine, well, why else would I be here lol J/k of course. This is something I've been pondering to myself lately, is it shallow of me to prefer not to date women that are disabled? Now, I'm not by any means closed to the possibility, obviously I have a good many friends that are disabled as well, but I've always been able to connect with "able bodied" people alot easier than fellow disabled people, it just seems like alot of disabled people seem to think that just because I am too that we have an automatic bond, because "I know how it is", well in some ways I do, yes, but I've never really had that mindset, I mean I'm aware of my physical limitations but I rarely get all "in your face about it", honestly I've talked to many disabled people that make even me a tad uncomfortible.

So, I can't help but get a tad irritated and offended whenever my friends or family tell me about this disabled guy or girl they met, and pressure me into meeting them like we'll be instant good buddies or a match made in heaven, I know they mean well, but those implications just get under my skin. Am I in the wrong here?

not really in the wrong, I know how that is also. People do the same thing to me. I have a back injury and I know my limit. Some people like to treat me like my whole body is broken, it's not. I can still do many things, but there are somethings that I can no longer do. Just looking at me you wouldn't know that I had a back problem, but I do. To me it all depends on what the persons disability is, I don't think I could date someone with a mental problem, or something like that. Or someone that is a child in an adult body...I know a few people like that and they do get on my nerves sometimes. Just let the family & friends know that you know they mean well, but you will find someone on your own. That you know the right person for you is out there, you just havn't found them yet.
