tyrjammer saidIf you've seen my picture then you know why I'm asking. I became a bilateral above knee (AK) amputee in the summer of 2011. I had just started seeing a guy for the first time in my life. Well, it was more like we hung out and then fooled around.
It's taken me almost three years to recover and I think I'm ready to date. I know that most gay guys are critical when it comes to looks (myself included.) I'm looking to date and not be someone's play thing so please only reply if you would consider dating an amputee. What are everyone's thoughts?
It wouldn't give me a second thought, to date an amputee. By coincidence, just today I had drinks with a lesbian friend who lost her entire left arm. She doesn't wear a prosthesis, just has her clothes tailored for her remaining arm.
Of course I'm not going to be dating her, I already have a guy - LOL! But she and her partner are starting a business here in 2015 that we're helping get publicity.
Incidentally, my own late Father was also an amputee. Merely some fingers from his left hand, a boyhood farm accident. Yet a loss just the same, that as a child I accepted as being totally normal.
But that heroic man, already exempted from military service by his amputation, successfully obtained a special waiver to serve in the US Army in WWII, which he did honorably. And his 3 brothers, my uncles, also served, one already past draft age so that he also required a volunteer waiver, and another who became so seriously wounded in the Pacific that he was disabled for the rest of his life.
So there are some of us who aren't prejudiced in the least by amputees, or by the disabled (being disabled myself for 20 years now). Though I'll concede we may not be in the majority, at least we do exist.
And BTW, I don't see in your photos where you're an amputee. I DO see the most delightful bow tie, which looks like it's a self-tie, rather than pre-made.
If so, I absolutely ADORE men who know how to tie a bow, a lost art. If you're one of them, I'll give you the name of the Vermont company that custom makes my own bow ties to my collar size (I would never wear a universal-size bow with an adjustable buckle
), and at remarkably reasonable prices.
