Disabled dating - dating is no easy thing for anyone but for disabled women the dating world is even more of a challenge. However, when done right, Internet dating can offer hope to those of us living with a disability or chronic illness.
Being disabled, whether by birth, accident or illness, can sometimes leave you feeling socially isolated and the practicalities of getting out and about can mean that for disabled women dating is more difficult, especially as they are less able to mingle socially with those all-important eligible singletons.
Mr (or Miss) Right is seldom to be found right on your doorstep or in your local corner-shop. With online dating these practical considerations don’t matter at first.
But, the highs and lows of online dating can be hard to handle and disabled women can have particular concerns about how their disability will affect their online dating experience.
