Dating for people with learning disabilities
Make sure to add details that uniquely describe you and your personality.
This will help others to get to know you so you can connect and grow a special needs friendship or special needs dating relationship. Start building lasting friendships and relationships. There is no limit to the number of people or times you can communicate with each other. Chip and I talked as best friends from November until December when we finally met in person at the mall.
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).
Such individuals often depend on a carer to watch out for their interests and thus this site will be unlike other dating and networking sites in that the carer will create their own profile coupled to the individual(s) they care for.
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.
My older sister has learning difficulties - school was very hard for her - kids teased her relentlessly and in our small city there really wasn't anyone one else we knew with similar age and level-of-disability.
Such a site shouldn't and couldn't make any profit - even if it became popular enough to capture a large percentage of disabled people, Google Adwords wouldn't mean a lot of money would be made - instead such a site would be formed and championed on the premise that everyone deserves to experience love, and it would be nice is some of the services/opportunities the rest of us take for granted were also available to people like my sister.
If you too have a sibling or child with a learning disability you'll know what I'm talking about, and I'd love to hear your feedback. Andrew If you support this idea, PLEASE join our facebook group and tell all your friends too!
