Hypothetical dating question:

Would you date a female dwarf or "little person?" (the term midget is considered offensive).

Or, if you are female, would you date a male dwarf or "little person?"

i can tell you right now, i generally would not, if the relationship is going to be full, all out, normal. If it was just a romantic dating situation, then maybe, but that's weird.

This, in no way, means i dislike or discriminate against dwarfs or "little people." ( i don't like that term either....)

Man, where do you come up with this stuff?

My old lady is 5'2 and I'm 6'2. I guess she's technically a little person by comparison.

I happen to have a close friend who is a "little person". Generally speaking people are closer with people of like interests correct? Someone who is a serious musician doesn't get hooked up with a home body who doesn't like going out. Someone with a deep religious belief isn't going to get hooked up with an atheist. Well, if you were so different as a "little person" or a person with CP confined to a wheel chair most likely a person who doesn't fall into that "group" isn't going to "fit". The person outside that group doesn't have a clue as to what it is like. They aren't in the "club", they are outsiders.

To tell you the truth my buddy will likely (VERY, VERY likely) never have a girl friend. He never has, and I seriously doubt he ever will. And this is the odd part, because he DOESN'T want a little person for a girl friend! He says "Just because I am this way doesn't mean I can only have a gimp girlfriend". Well, that is a fine and dandy dream, but they aren't in his club, and they aren't ever going to look at him that way because of this. This is just a generality of course someone is going to post how crazy I am because they know someone.......I know there are some who fall out of that generality, I am talking generalities here folks.

My friend with CP for instance is married to a woman also in a chair with Spina bifida. To tell you the honest truth, very few little people want to go out of the club, they in fact have a large nation wide club that meets and people get together, as does my friends wife she goes to conventions for the handicapped.

Something has to spark, if something sparks with you and a little lady then it sparks, you would know before the first date. But don't count on it.

And I can't make it clear enough, unless you have hung out with someone like my friend who has a very odd "condition" where his body is normal but he has 4 inch long legs, unless you have hung out with someone like that you have no idea what it is like. You have NO IDEA what it is like! People are VICIOUSLY cruel. People who aren't even cruel by nature, they are ignorantly cruel. I have seen people do and say things to him that would blow your mind. Like I said, you aren't in that club, you don't have a clue and because of that would likely not get hooked up with someone because they need someone who understands.

As a disabled guy; I can tell you a lot of disabled people have a very small circle that they tread in. Fear of not being accepted, fear of people making comments, fear of being laughed at...or its just too damn hard to go out in public. Generally, the dates are few and they're people who understand, or health care workers.
Now it gets even more creepy; I know a guy who is confined to a wheelchair (essentially hes paralyzed from the neck down). He used to be better off physically than I was when we were kids; his condition is progressive, and hes so embarrassed, hes pushed all his old friends away. Anyway; there were several women who went out with him in college because they 'felt sorry' for him...it just made his suspicion and self loathing even worse. Then, to complete the tale; he did get a girlfriend, who seemed alright; but you wonder about a woman in her 30s with no kids, who wants to date a guy confined to a wheelchair...well she took him for his money. A fair amount of disabled people simply don't date for that reason.

So for me; would I date a 'little person'? If we connected on THAT level; and she was okay with me being normal sized....sure.


I think Against All Odds asked this question to gauge 'midget porn' acceptance LOL

No, not at all; i've forgotten why i asked the question. i think someone elses asked it/eluded to it elsewhere and thus i decided ask it here.

2) Thank you for revealing your situation. i would like to discuss more later.

Depends on how big her.......







....personality is.


Seriously though I have no idea what normal is anymore. I work with the mentally ill. I guess it all depends on the girl. Am I attracted to her and does she feel the same way? Then we get to the compatability questions of beliefs and values. I am roughly average height, maybe 5'7" depending on which convenience store I am walking out of, so petite might not be a problem. But I think dwarfism might be.

man, that must be some good stuff your smoking to ponder this question...j/k

I don't think I would cause the attraction wouldn't be there...but if she was a midget wrestler I might get her autograph.
