Dating Sets Disabled People Free
society has disregarded the sexual and emotional needs of disabled
people preferring to treat them as asexual and assuming that sex
was a non-issue for most. Disabled people too believed themselves
to be unattractive, as they did not fit into the usual standards
of beauty set by society.
is little wonder then that many of those living with disabilities
or limiting medical conditions have bad self-images and suffer from
low self-esteem. Many try to conform to societys expectations
and suppress any sexual desire they may feel. They prefer to ignore
their sexuality, as they feel guilty about having such thoughts.
people have also faced isolation in the area of formal sex education.
In line with the general view of - they dont need it, many
sex education programmes overlook the disabled youngster. This leaves
many experiencing sexual desires but having no idea of how to handle
them or who to turn to for help.
situation is as difficult for those who face a deliberating or life
threatening disease or become disabled suddenly. There are so many
issues to cope with at this time that their sex lives are often
pushed to the background. However, questions ranging from whether
sexual activity is possible to how soon and with what adjustments
it can resume remain major concerns. Self-esteem too takes a beating,
as the person feels inadequate compared to earlier.
The truth of the matter is that those who suffer from impairments
also enjoy sex and have the same longings to be touched and loved
as anyone else. However there are not enough counselling services
to address these issues. Nor are there many options which let these
feelings come out into the open.
emergence of online dating sites especially for the disabled have
indeed made a big difference and set a lot of people free from feelings
of frustration. Through these dating sites the disabled single can
now connect with others who understand their impairment and initiate
new friendships and romantic relationships without fearing rejection.

also provide an opportunity to network with people all over the
globe. Disabled people can log on the web to get advice and information
especially on matters related to sex and relationships. They can
interact with others through discussion forums, message boards and
chat rooms as well as gather knowledge on matters related to disabilities
through interesting articles on a wide range of subjects.
sites for the disabled can be both free and commercial. There are
sites that are for specific disabilities or conditions like multiple
sclerosis or visual impairment alongside those that are more general.
Some sites offer adult sex and adult chat rooms while others may
simply act as introduction services. Many dating sites have special
features that are unique to them.

the dating sites have not only educated society but also have also
set disabled people free from their inhibitions.
