Internet dating for disabled people when dating a younger man
Assistive technology is revolutionizing life for people with special needs, so it should be no surprise that it can help improve socialization for adults both young and old.
Online dating and friend finding can be done on any computer or tablet, so users can choose the device that best suits their unique needs.
Online dating can help to eliminate social anxiety by allowing initial meetings to take place in a virtual space.
Those living with Down Syndrome may be worried about how the outside world perceives them, and online interactions remove the looks and stares that come from unsupportive onlookers.
It's not cause for segregation, nor is it cause for laughter and ridicule....
One of my best mates at Tech was dissabled, callipers on both legs and as ugly as sin to most folk.
There is nowhere on this site that asks if you have a disability and that is right and proper..
It should be up to the individual to divulge it when they feel comfortable....
While most people can turn to online social groups and dating sites, there are very few resources for men and women with autism, Down Syndrome, and developmental delays.
Meeting new people can be difficult, even in special education classrooms and workshops for the developmentally delayed.
Typically, these groups are very small, and the different degrees of mental ability vary widely, making it hard for young men and women to find someone that they can relate to on a personal and romantic level.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I have three faves on here with varying disabilities and one of the guys was at the last Birmingham meet...... Larrson don't you think that segragating disabled people like that is Victorian and a draconian way to think... And why assume only disabled people would want to date disabled people??? My brother was severely disabled and my father is severely disabled but they are both more of a man than any of the hypocrites who think it hilarious to poke fun at the 'flid'.....
I would love to see any of those who found humour in this subject live one single day in my brother or my fathers body and see how funny they found it then......
