    They tested this on Mythbusters. It's impossible

    Of course they can. People fall in love with all sorts of people regardless of disability.

    Of course it happens all of the time. Not all people are superficial.

    What if you met a wonderful, kind woman who was very loving, but maybe not so beautiful? Would you reject her?

    No I won't.

    You may want to see if you can check out this "modern love" column from the New York Times:

    Would My Heart Outrun Its Pursuer? (By GARY PRESLEY, Published: November 27, 2009)

    Or... check out the movie "Murderball."

    The guy James Franco played in the film "127 hours" lost his arm on that hiking trip. And at the end of the movie they showed a picture of the actual hiker with his wife, who me met *after* the loss of his arm if I understand correctly.

    Did something like this ever happened to you or anyone else you know?
  16. Nov 25, 2011 #15
    I was going to suggest Murderball as well. Awesome movie.

    i'm going out on a limb here, but i suspect you get farther with most girls, when you make it clear you appreciate how beautiful she is, rather that hoping she appreciates how beautiful you are. At least it worked for me, as I am something of a troll but still married to an extremely beautiful woman.

    If missing a leg is a man's biggest shortcoming, women may well beat a path to his door.

    I have both of my legs.The problem is my left leg is little bit short than the right one.That's why I am lame legged,I can't walk straightly like a normal person.I don't act rudely or bad with anyone.But still girls think about me differently.Like I am innocent or something like that.

    Don't worry about it buddy! It's all in your attitude. If you let your "disability" get the best of you, then it truly is a disability. If you move on with life and try not to let it get on the way, girls will take notice of that. If you don't care about your leg, why should they? Seriously, get a fancy looking cane like Dr. House (if you already have a British accent, you're all set! just kidding :wink: )

    Also, get some sort if funny shirt that says something like: "One of my legs is shorter than the other and all I got is this lousy T-shirt" or something. Seriously, show people that you are totally comfortable with the way you walk and act and they will respect you for it. I have a couple of friends from college who walk with a limp and cane and they pull it off just fine.

    Do you mind me asking how old you are? Just curious :smile:

    I am 20 years.But I feel very bad about this.
