How to Meet Someone : Advice For Disabled Singles

Dating for Disabled People is not always easy but here some advice on things you can do :

-Contact your Local Association in your city and Meet People who have the same or different Disabilities than you have

-Try to Chat Online and Register to Niche Dating Sites but be careful and try to do it with a friend (Have you already heard of Acrotomophilia? If Not, Well you should before starting online dating)

-Why not try a Specialized National Sports League for people with disabilities (See also "Special Olympics" Organization link here at bottom) or local organizations with Disability Services

-When you are looking for singles or when you are ready to meet someone with or without a Disability : Be honest about your disability but do not only focus on it

-Try mainstream online communities like Tinder, Match or OKCupid. Don't be afraid if you receive higher rejection rates, it can happen more on mainstream dating sites rather than on niche disabled-dating websites

-Be introduced to someone by a friend or a relative. It's old school but it works!

-If you can go out easily even with your disability, here are some suggestions for going out : Go to the Church, Engage conversations at the Supermarket or your Local Store, Go to the Cinema or a Free Concert outside, Talk to your Neighbors (they can introduce the love of your life to you, who knows)

-Try to make new friends or have at least some good friends and don't stay alone

-Remember one thing : Everybody and I mean Everybody, with or without disabilities, experiences rejection when dating someone, Online or in the Real World. So Don't Worry, Don't be Sad and Don't Give Up. LOVE is waiting for you, I Promise.
