Re: Dating someone with a Disability? (he's deaf) - April 7th 2009, 03:42 PM

That's awesome. I found out yesterday there's a guy who lives in the same apartments I do and he doesn't have arms. He opened a mailbox with his teeth and drives with his feet. He was smiling the entire time also. I think we can learn from people who have disabilities. If people are making fun of the guy your dating then just stand up for him. Tell them to go blindfolded for a day and then see if they want to comment again. I'd say keep doing what you're doing because you're setting an example of looking on the inside of a person instead of outside.
