    This is basically just a survey, I'm not trying to make fun of anyone here. I've done these surveys on some other forums, and I'm wondering whether the results will be about the same here. If this is considered an innappropriate question here, please forgive me.

    Why did you choose 2's and 9's? They seem so far apart, did you use both hands? Wouldn't 2323111223 be easier?

    And no I would not, anyone who still uses a cassette player is obviously not technologically advanced enough for my tastes.

    Definitely but then we have COSHH and HASAW acts. So this is pretty much what we have to do by law.

    Whats that movie about the guy who is dating the girl whose prosthetic leg is constantly falling off? lol

    btw I voted that I wouldn't mind, of course. :P, the prosthetic leg wouldn't matter at all. Although I probably would have to buy her an ipod.

    I would hot have a problem dating Candace or any other woman amputee, on the basis of being an amputee. It is irrelevant.

    What counts is the inner person.

    :approve:

    But in my opinion, this person is good looking as well :smile:
    Her good-lookingness is a bias to your test :wink:

    Candace is certainly an attractive woman.

    However, I've known a lot of attractive women, but I wouldn't date them.

    But for me, it's an academic exercise. I've been married to the same woman for nearly 25 yrs, or 26 years if one counts the year we lived together as time and opportunity would permit.

    Agreed but if she gave me the nod I wouldn't be one to turn her down for a date, call me shallow or call me human? your choice :smile:

    Dating and relationships are not the same thing, a date is a reconnaissance mission.

    A date is a brief encounter in which one has the opportunity to learn about the other person. One can engage in successive dates with the same person and can develop into a relationship. A relationship is an evolutionary process.

    I now have new advice for my friends :biggrin:


    Back to the OP. I would have no problem in dating someone like her.

    A relationship is something more than a reconnaissance mission IMHO.

    Thank you Astronuc. :smile:
    The part I really did not get is exactly the "reconnaissance mission" thing. But after browsing google, I realize that my problem only came from a similar wording in french. Sorry for my stupidity :redface:

    Nope, couldn't do it...I don't date women. And I'm not really into people who are really crazy about things like sports either, and she looks like she's one of those people who's really into sports, too.

    A prosthetic leg is pretty uncontroversial. A much more telling question would be to ask who would date a girl who had her breasts amputated. (I wouldn't mind, personality is where it's at, well to a point, if she looked like a gremlin I'd probably not.)

    I've heard of at-risk women having the procedure in the interest of future health. I don't know how prevalent it is though, nor do I know whether or to what degree it is effective.

    No problem here. She's hot enough to turn my head, though that says nothing about who she is as a person.

    (BTW, I would bet money that her attractiveness factored into her getting the spot. i.e. we're reacting exactly as expected.)
