Special needs dating website

Although dating will be a part of the site, disabled people and their carers can also set their profiles (in fact it will be the default) to "seeking friends" and thus can network with similar individuals or social groups in their neighbourhood. However, if like me, you've complained at times how hard it is to find someone special - image how difficult it is for people with handicaps.My older sister has learning difficulties - school was very hard for her - kids teased her relentlessly and in our small city there really wasn't anyone one else we knew with similar age and level-of-disability.

While most people keep their ideas secret, I'd prefer someone else implement and benefit from this idea rather than it fade in my head and never happen!Indeed there are a few offenders why may try to victimise intellectually and/or physically handicapped people in their nearby area, hence it's important the carer is involved to employ commonsense.The questions asked of the diabled person must also be sensate, rather than ask for "severity of disability", a better phrase might be "level of independence" from low to high.The idea is for a free networking and dating site specifically for people with intellectual disability/learning difficulties AND their carers.Originally I thought such a site should be for people with physical disabilities too, however since I had this idea I've noticed quite a few dating sites now exist for physically disabled people, especially those in wheelchairs, however the needs for those with learning difficulties is very different indeed.Note there are many issues of "concent' here, so this website must come with some very serious/sensitive disclaimers AND must encourage/insitss that both carer and indivudial complete profiles together as a team.

Like a few dating sites have done already, a great idea would be to show the approximate address/suburb of people overlayed onto a Google map to help find people nearby.For a while there was a social group she joined of younger people, and that was great, but now she's 28 and I know, chances are she'll never find love.She lives with my parents in a city of 100,000 (Cairns, Australia), so who knows...I haven't search around too much on the web, so perhaps the site I've describe already exists, but if so I'm guessing it can't have been too successful or we would have heard about it!Really such a site would have to linked in someone to a social facebook (the same way Zoosk did) to REALLY make a huge impact.From uniform dating, to websites that cater specifically for tall people, or those with a gluten intolerance, there really is a site out there for everyone.
