Letter to the Editor:
Dating Sites for People With Disabilities?

 

How come there is a significant lack of online dating sites for people with disabilities? Especially for people with autism, and/or aspergers? Let alone information on people with disabilities. I'm an 18 year old male in college, with aspergers, and well, dating isn't easy
for me. I've been on a few dates, but that's a long story for another time.

Do people just don't want us to hook up with other people who don't have these problems, or hook up with people with similar problems?

It's very unfair and awfully depressing for me and many others. I tried eHarmony.com, I took the questionnaire, and no one was compatible, that and it was very hard to understand. I've had similar results on other dating sites, and my matches have been well, troubling. (a teacher at the high school, a half-sister(!) and a coworker).

So, is there a site? And why are we being excluded from the fun?
~ David S.

Editor's Note: There are thousands of online dating services and luckily some even cover conditions like autism and aspergers. Here ya go:

> ACdate.com
> Aspie Friends

Unfortunately because of the narrow focus, these sites may not have enough members to really be effective. In that case, maybe someone will read your letter and email us some additional ideas that we will publish. Thanks for sharing your important thoughts.

Also, you may be interested in reading this article from AutismForums.net that shares some of your frustration. There are some good ongoing discussions there about autism, aspergers, and dating.
