Disabled dating personals have opened up the social lives of singles living with impairment. With the number of dating websites on the Internet increasing daily, there is something for everyone out there!
Disabled singles can choose sites based on ethnicity or cultural background. They can access sites for specific disabilities or conditions or they can choose to go to a more general disabled dating site. Dating sites catering to sexual preferences too abound. There are sites for the heterosexual, for gay men and women, for transsexual and bisexual people and even sites for those wishing to indulge in a weird fetish!
Most disabled dating sites however share one cardinal rule – the sites are for singles only. This is usually mentioned as rule number one in their terms and conditions! The term single however does not apply to only those who have not been married. It also includes anyone who is widowed, divorced or legally separated. In fact there are specific sites aimed at divorced people and single parents.
The regular disabled dating sites do not entertain adults who are in a marital relationship but who are looking for other partners as well. They also discourage couples looking for other couples or singles to join them for group sex. Fetishes which involve minors, animals and illegal sexual activities are an absolute no-no.
To protect the interests of their members, many disabled dating sites have in built checks to ensure that this rule is followed stringently. Free dating sites reserve the right to remove a member without question if they have been found providing false information or indulging in activities discouraged by the site. Commercial sites often use detailed questionnaires or personal interviews to get information on their members and cross checks are built into these. Reported misuse too is viewed seriously.
As the dating disabled personals on these sites are aimed at singles only many of the sites carry advice on relationships and how to maintain them over time. They warn their members that sexual excitement is not enough to sustain a relationship in the long run and that they must look for other signs of compatibility.
Most romantic relationships start off with a spark of attraction between the partners. The attraction may not necessarily be physical – one could be drawn to some particular quality in the other person. But the initial heady excitement tends to settle down after a while and if the relationship continues to grow it is a sign that the partners are on the right track. Then, shared interests outside the bedroom become important as well! A similar way of looking at things, shared beliefs or common goals could all contribute to cementing the relationship in the long run.
The old adage – opposites attract – may be true to start with, but if the so called opposites are so different from each other that they do not share anything in common, they could have great difficulty living under one roof. Disabled dating personals have helped many singles find love and form lasting relationships – so in spite of all the warnings, the horizon continues to look bright!
