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?

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.

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:

It's tough at 20. Many people around that age are too concerned with appearances. But that's just due to immaturity.

But the fact is, most of us don't look like super models, and don't get attention showered on us simply for breathing. (Turns out that's probably a blessing but that's off topic!) So, we must develop other skills. Social skills, I mean - kindness, charm, wit. That sort of thing.

What sort of socializing do you do? Clubs, volunteer work, hobbies?

I am not doing any socializing now.I stay at home almost all the time except going to school,sometimes going out with friends and if there is any other important works outside.I look very bad when I walk,people keeps looking at me and sometimes they talk among themselves.And girls I don't know,maybe they hate people like me very much and scold me too.

I suggest you get involved in some sort of social activity. For example, join a club. I sense you're insecure the way you walk - you need to interact with people in a way that doesn't involve walking.

Is it okay if I walk or go in front of modern girls or will they feel uncomfortable with me around.

Yes, I have known of a beautiful woman who married a blind person. I believe if there is a degree in disabilities, being blind is more difficult than having one leg. I know of this couple personally and they live in the Philippines
