Why do people not read profiles on dating sites or when they do, not believe what's written there? (I would ask why anyone would lie about being limbless but disturbingly I do have an answer of sorts to that.)

Anyone who obviously hasn't read my profile automatically rates a "Sorry, not interested in gay or bi males" quick response. If they ain't reading mine, I ain't reading theirs.

So...yeah....what's your response???? (bracing herself, cause she knows it's gonna be a good one)

Yay moonlight, you're my 100th. commenter! Big smoochy kiss!!!!

My response to their disbelief, if I'm in a good mood is often, "yes but look on the bright side, I have a nine inch tongue and I can breathe through my ears". (If I'm in a less happy mood, I am less charitable I'm afraid.)

But what I really meant when I said I had an answer to why one would lie is that there are so-called wannabes out there, people who wannabe disabled. I'm not talking about pretenders, who get off on playing at being disabled by, for example, enacting scenes in a wheelchair or with crutches and calipers. I'm talking of people who feel a deep need to actually be disabled.

In the same way as a transsexual will feel he/she is in the body of the wrong gender, a wannabe feels like he/she (usually he) is a disabled person (usually an amputee) wrongly living in a whole body. Such people feel alienated from one or more of their limbs. Treatment in the form of surgery to remove the offending (but perfectly healthy) limb(s) is almost always denied which can lead sufferers (ant they do suffer) to take desperate steps. In the severest cases, they can attempt surgery themselves with the inevitable consequences of infection, disablement or even death. I have heard of otherwise sane people deliberately damaging each leg in turn beyond repair so that amputation becomes the only viable medical solution.

I don't even begin to connect with that either as someone who is disabled or as a normal, reasonably sane and balanced (yes I am so, cheeky!) person.

WOW. I can't even begin to fathom that. Extreme psychosis. Everytime you think you have a handle on human nature, something else crops up.

I know you've been offline for a long time, but you're still on my watched list. Happy Winter Holidays and all that.
