Re: Can i ever get married



Why are you limiting yourself? If two people love each other, it will happen -- regardless. It's been happening for centuries.


Re:Can i ever get married



Oh. My. God. What the heck is with you people? Limiting your self to something like that is just ridiculous and close-minded. That's like saying "I'll only date someone who's black, or Deaf, or tall or, insert adjective." That's an extremely sheltered view and it sounds like you have absolutely no self esteme. Here's a news flash, a sighted guy could love you for who you are, and a blind guy could be judgemental and cheet on you. The quality of a man has nothing to do with whether he can see or not. You, as a blind person should know better. With self esteme like that you're never going to find anyone, blind or sighted, or you'll wind up in an abusive relationship. I am marrying a man who is sighted. We have a 3 year old son together, and no, he doesn't take care of me and do all the work, but neither does he judge me or treat me poorly. Honestly, if I showed your post to him, he'd be sickened. If he met you before me, I guarintee you he'd never date you, not because you're blind, but because poor self esteme is majorly not attractive, hun. Also, someone else mentioned blind people not being judgemental about appearance. Where did you get that crap? I have standards and preferences. For instance, I am just not attracted to bald men, I find nice healthy hair a huge turn on, also men who are substantial, not super skinny or boney who can give good hugs. I prefer men with dark hair, I love blue eyes, and so on. To say that blind people don't have preferences/opinions is to say that they have no standards, and that is disgusting and abelest. I just don't understand you people. Fortunately my son, who is also blind has a few really good role models who are blind, because if he didn't, and I read this board it might scare me away from ever encouraging him to interact with blind people.

Re:Can i ever get married



I don't think you should restrict yourself to marrying a blind person just because you underestimate yourself. A blind person can misjudge you too.
Have faith in yourself and search for love and go for it whether you find it with a blind person or sighted one unless you have other reasons to prefer to marry a blind person. May God give you happiness. Thanks

Re:Can i ever get married



Hi, don't worry, you'll see, some day you'll find the man that suits your expectations! However, do not restrict your choices to blind people onle; I'm blind too, and I'm not engaged as well, but, to be honest, I'd prefer a sighted person, not because I have something against those like me, not at all, but I do think that those who are not visually impaired can give you a hand; you know, we are people who need more attentions than others because we need more help. And, you know what, if somebody wants to betray it doesn't matter if he or she is blind or not!!! Regards


Dont worry

I just joined about 3 weeks ago.The site is for disabled peope. My email is lavenderjoyy@yahoo.com.Take care now and dont worry my dear. God Bless.Su


Re:Can i ever get married



I am sorry but isn't it better to marry who you fall in love with and not pick from whatever group you choose, like you should marry whoever you love whether they are blind or deaf, fat or skinny, white or black, none of these things should be criteria for finding a mate, If I was in love with you then your blindness is part of what makes me love you and I would never judge you or use that against you in ANY way, be cause I DO love you not because I am blind or not


Re:Can i ever get married



I hope so . . . I would like to meet and possibly marry a blind man, someone who is in academics or the arts. I have no idea how to meet someone in this instance. Perhaps someone might know a man who would not be against the idea of a sighted girlfriend. I have a doctorate and would to be with an educated man . . .
Thanks,

Re:Can i ever get married



i would love to marry a blind person. i love the feeling that it doesn't matter what i look like. they would love u no matter what a person looks like. at least my ex didn't and he is blind


Re:Can i ever get married



i think u could. i live by a person who is deaf and he is married to a deaf person. so i think it is possible. I have been dating someone who is blind for about 4 weeks. I just hope down the road he will ask me to marry him. we do love each other a lot. He amazes me a lot with every thing he does. Plus he has changed my life in different ways. I look at myself and think i am good enough. He means the world to me. I know we haven't been dating long but i can see myself married to him and having his kids. so i think it is possible for u to marry someone blind or not blind. who knows. bye
