Default People with Mental Disabilities on Plenty of Fish...

So far, on two separate occasions, I have run across a woman who I suspected has a mental disability on Plenty Of Fish...

On both occasions I had to talk to them a few times in order for it to become apparent, then certain clues from their pictures further clued me in..

Soo..what do people do in those situations?

I can't ask them, right?

How else do other people handle this?

And why am I being matched with two women who are MR?

I don't want to be mean, or insensitive..

just reject them like you would any other woman that doesn't pass your clean bill of health standards.

So you talked to them a few times and found clues in their pictures, and now you are sure that this woman has a mental disability?

Hm. Anyway, people with disabilities desire love and happiness too. What's your issue?

But you can't tell off the bat, one was even very pretty.

Besides, I already gave her my number before things became apparent....

She's actually funny and kind of fun to talk to, I just don't want to lead her on.

wth does 'one was even pretty' supposed to imply? are you some kind of a troll or just the run of the mill man? tell me so I know what to expect.....


like i said just reject her, tell her she's not up to your standards or she's slow or whatever. i actually had a man tell me I was slow, made my day. Give it a try.

I would imagine I'm just an average man..

All I meant was I was flattered to talk to her, nothing in her profile gave clues, and I glossed over the grammatical errors.

Then we exchanged numbers..

I figure I won't initiate conversation, or meet. She'll probably lose interest shortly.

if you don't responds to her she probably will. people don't give the disabled people a chance but what else is new. if she's really M.R. then that is understandable, but whatever you don't have to give her a chance.
