Special needs dating website would like to meet dating advice show
Although dating will be a part of the site, disabled people and their carers can also set their profiles (in fact it will be the default) to "seeking friends" and thus can network with similar individuals or social groups in their neighbourhood. However, if like me, you've complained at times how hard it is to find someone special - image how difficult it is for people with handicaps.
Originally I thought such a site should be for people with physical disabilities too, however since I had this idea I've noticed quite a few dating sites now exist for physically disabled people, especially those in wheelchairs, however the needs for those with learning difficulties is very different indeed.
For a while there was a social group she joined of younger people, and that was great, but now she's 28 and I know, chances are she'll never find love.
She lives with my parents in a city of 100,000 (Cairns, Australia), so who knows...
From uniform dating, to websites that cater specifically for tall people, or those with a gluten intolerance, there really is a site out there for everyone.
So what do websites that are aimed specifically at disabled people offer, and who is using them?
Words like "handicapped" or "mental retardation" are obviously hideous, so I believe probably the best name for this site might not include ANY of these words (unless in an acronym perhaps).
