One should always treat every encounter online with a little suspicion. It may be exciting to think that your future partner may lie somewhere on a specific disability dating site, but go slowly, get to know the person before you agree to any form of outside contact like phone calls or a meeting. Use common sense when meeting up with an online mate for the first time; agree to meet somewhere public, not somewhere threatening like a bar or at his/her house, if you had met somewhere more traditional like a mutual friend’s party, or social setting, you would have skipped this step. Move slowly and at a pace you are comfortable with. Any relationship takes time to build up trust, move at a pace you are comfortable with. While you may be eager to meet the person who shares a similar challenge and similar interests to you, go slow, use common sense and obey all the rules when it comes to meeting up.
