Do you know that there's an odd collection of people out there that are attracted to disability? Having a website/app with hundreds of profiles of (some) vulnerable people is surely not going to go down well. If I wasn't in a relationship, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be using a site marketed at the disabled, not because I don't want a disabled partner (been there, done that), but because I don't want my disability to define me or who falls in love with me. Funnily enough, there are people out there that will love you despite your disability.passionsnetwork Dating can be difficult for people dealing with some sort of disability.

Last week I entered into a Twitter debate regarding dating apps/websites specifically designed for disabled people. Like I said, the majority of my disabled friends have able-bodied partners that don't take their condition into consideration; our lives might be different from a 'healthy' couple but it works. Also, please note, I'm totally not having a go at any disabled couple, fall in love with whoever you want, my issue is how we're segregated from the 'norm', and how we need our 'own sites'.
I'm not one to hold back with my opinion (as you well know), and since I found a number of issues with the websites/apps, I thought I'd share why I find it all so problematic. It highlights that disabled people should only date/be in a relationship with another disabled person. I do not have a problem if you're disabled and would want to use a site like this, that's completely up to you, I'm just stating my opinion on the topic.
My boyfriend is able-bodied, and a lot of my disabled friends have able-bodied partners, they love us because of who we are, it has nothing to do with our health. Can't we at least use whatever bloody site we want to find a partner!? This is not a personal attack on any disabled user of an app/site like mentioned, it's a comment on how these apps/sites further alienate the disabled community.The whole thing stinks of the archaic attitude of, 'sticking with your own kind,' and quite frankly, it pisses me off. I was tweeting with one of the co-founders of a particular new disability dating app last week and once I emphasised a few of my concerns, she became extremely rude and treated me like I was an idiot. I'm only a little disabled girl with a post-graduate degree and background in the medical humanities.The sites listed below focus on this community, providing members with an ability to meet others who understand the issues disabled individuals struggle with on a daily basis.Disabled Founded in 2004, Disabled Passions is one of the oldest 100% free online dating social networking sites built specifically for the disabled community.While the site provides all the features found in mainstream dating sites, it also includes a number of features designed specifically to connect people dealing with disabilities, including a 'Disabled Groups' options, a 'Disabled Books' library, a 'Video Directory focusing on the Disabled Community', etc.- passionsnetwork I have been on here long time it's a good place for disabled & physically challenged to talk & get to know people with similar challenges & go from there if they want to meet & or date signed Michael Lockhart Great site for us disabled people to find some 1 to be friends with & or date that have some of the same problems & who understand what it is like to be different Great site to meet and greet.
