Not so long ago, society considered romance unusual if not impossible for people with disabilities. Thankfully, with the recognition that physical disabilities don't change the emotional need for love and companionship, that's no longer true.
Now, a new online dating service, DisabledCupid.com (http://www.disabledcupid.com), is dedicated to helping its members meet that need.
Founder Andrea Carless developed the site specifically to help disabled men and women find love and romance while giving them a chance to have plenty of fun at the same time. "Making it easier for them to connect with other disabled singles who are seeking friendship, dating and marriage is really important," Carless said. "That's why I made it my goal to provide a safe Internet dating service for individuals looking for romantic partners who see beyond the wheelchair or the prosthesis to the real person."
The site is already bringing members together romantically. One couple who met online recently is Ben and Hajnal. "After few days we both realised we were born for each other," Hajnal said. "We spent a wonderful week together in Budapest. We both fell in love before the first meeting, and it's getting stronger."
DisabledCupid.com uses the latest high-tech search tools to allow its members to connect with one another in many ways. Video, photo and voice options are available to make online communication more enjoyable. Members can communicate with one another using instant messaging, mailboxes, mobile messaging and even reduced-rate telephone services. The site lets members find their ideal romantic match based on a wide range of criteria from personal interests to Zodiac signs to sexual energy. Members build their personal profiles by selecting options in dozens of categories with hundreds of different preferences to choose from. A special section even provides etiquette and safety tips for members who may be new to the dating scene.
Safety and privacy are important elements of the DisabledCupid.com site, too. While "HotLists" let members connect quickly with their friends, special user names allow them to remain anonymous even while communicating with other members, and the "BlockList" feature gives them complete control over who can contact them or see their profiles.
DisabledCupid.com, which adheres to the U.K. Data Protection Act of 1988, combines accurate searching, interactive matching, and a safe community environment for its members. DisabledCupid.com is a part of World Dating Partners, which can be reached at the following U.K. address:
