Is it bad for me (as a disabled person) to strongly prefer to only date other disabled people and not really want to date able‐bodied people?

Nope! In fact, I felt the same way once. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to date another disabled person or only wanting to date other disabled people.

It’s also totally okay if that feeling sticks with you for the rest of your life or changes over time. As long as you have a healthy relationship where everyone is treated with respect, it’s no body else’s business who you choose to love.
