Why Use Online Dating?

If you've never used an online matchmaking service, or a disabled matchmaking service, you may be constantly asking yourself the same question: why even go there? "I would rather just meet someone in real-life"!  The problem with that statement is that sometimes, you just aren't meeting people. Or more importantly, you aren't meeting the right kind of people.

Whether you have a disability or not, you just may be picking the wrong kind of people to go out with. Dating for Disabled is a disability matchmaking service that allows you to put together a "shopping list" of things you are looking for in a partner. You can sit down in the comfort of your own kitchen, and put together a list of things that you would like in someone you intend to date. It can be as thorough or as superficial as you like, just take a seat, and write it all down on a piece of paper. Once you've got an outline in your head of what YOU are looking for, start the computer and sign up for a disabled dating site. The real challenge, is making that list! It's knowing before signing up, what it is that you want and need. Now, fill out your online dating profile (for more tips about that click here: ).

An online dating site allows you to hold up a virtual sign that announces what you want, and what kind of person it is you are searching to meet. In real life, it takes much longer to weed out the people who aren't really serious about a relationship, online they just write it on their profile.

Whilst filling out your profile, make sure to complete the "looking for" section. This will allow you to explain what kind of members you would like to contact you. Don't forget to fill out what kind of disability you have, and if you have a mobility challenge, or are in need of assistance. When you sign up for a dating site you don't have to put down any information you aren't comfortable sharing, but you should consider that if you are signing up for a dating site that is specifically for people with disabilities, there is no need to wait till later to tell someone about your disability. Part of the reason people choose Dating for Disabled, is that they know that they can be upfront and honest about it.

Now, you can't just sit around and be passive! With online dating, you can't just expect the perfect person to message you. You have to go out there, and use that list of criteria you yourself picked out, to hunt them down and message them. If you want a relationship, you're going to have to work for it, and by work for it, I mean: sign up for a dating site, fill out a profile, and use the search-tools to find someone who you're interested in getting to know a little better.

The beauty of online dating is that it's all up to you. You decide what you're looking for, and you go out there and message those people! That isn't to say people aren't going to message you first, or not message you back. 

But it's taking a hands-on approach to the whole mate-finding process.
