How does all of this impact your daily living?
I have slight hearing loss from past treatment I have been on for my health. Therefore itís harder for me to listen to people, especially if there is a lot of background noise. I also have a slightly weakened heart from treatment. Therefore I canít lift heavy weights in the gym, which in turn makes me loose my ability to look physically attractive, on top of the fact that my legs disabled.

I'm telling you op, and again i know you want ladies' opinions, it will take a SPECIAL woman to want what you have described. They're out there, but most want someone they can do things with. Guys are they same way!

Are you a member of a support group of disabled ppl who are like you? Are there any women there who are, or have been, disabled? Who better to be with than someone who fully understands your situation?

You've said the thing about heavy weights before, which seems like a non-issue. The question of how your conditions affect your life have more to do with things like, do you drive, how is your personal mobility (wheelchair, crutches, etc.) what is your energy level? Most women you're going to date aren't expecting you to carry her around or run a marathon.

All of these factors are of me. While I am proud of who I am, and what I aim to do in life, something tells me most women are not attracted to this. What are your thoughts about it? The reason why I ask is because I can never keep a woman past the first date.
Sure, if the man were age-reasonable for me. I rescue dogs and have several seniors but wouldn't want that to stop someone who would otherwise be good company (assuming OP is good company!)

I never wanted kids and know a lot of people who honestly don't want to be parents. It is a deal breaker for me and always was!

Job focus is absolutely fascinating to me and would have been at a younger age, too. I pay my own way, don't see men as wallets. I have always wondered why anyone chooses business or software aside from money. I make my own, always have, and have happily paid for friends, male or female, who have less.

Wishing OP best in having and being good company.

Thank you everyone! It makes me feel so much better to know that there are women out there who don’t mind these things in a man. I guess I just have to look a little harder.

To whom?
You?
Many people are waking up to the fact that children are a burden and a expense hence the decline in birth rates among first world countries.
You should applaud the fact that many people don't want to bring children into this world for economic or personal emotional issues and the fact that they can't raise a child.

That's not a fact. That's your opinion. And if we continue to have fewer children, eventually the human race will become extinct. Maybe that's what you want. But I want for us to continue to exist so we can protect life on Earth and spread it to other planets in this solar system and others. We are the steward of the Earth, so we have a moral obligation to continue to exist.

I have too many logistical and financial issues to start having children, so I can relate to someone who is "childless by circumstance". But I could never deal with someone who is "childfree by choice".

I agree. You can find a carbon copy of yourself in a woman.
