For learning disabilities, I reviewed dating sites for learning disabilities. I sent another email to love2meetu and checked with Wigan dating agency but no information has been found on calendar no application has been made by them. Then I called both of them. In addition to a letter, love4life posted multiple emails. hasn't heard back from them. Match & Match's membership is also sold out completely. I'm not sure if I'm late to them or something else is going on. I can sign up to just fine with Facebook dating and I'm on new dating apps that is made by same badoo brand of dating apps . i can get match and i'm texting a new guy that i found on apps called chat and date same brand of badoo did have more likes and matches . i just give up with learning disability dating agency disabled dating . I also be rejected by an app called Hiki, and they all seem to be looking for just friends . playing the just be friends cards .

    Hey @Splatmate24. Great to hear from you, as always. 

    It sounds like you have been experiencing difficulties with learning disability dating agency websites. Not least as it seems like a slow process with no information/application.

    Not hearing back from them doesn't sound particularly great either. I can hear how much you would like this to work and it is frustrating for you that it's not working. 

    If you're not sure what is going on with Match & Match's membership, would you feel comfortable contacting them? They may be able to inform you what's going on. 

    I can hear you have recently joined new dating apps and are texting a new guy that you found. How are you finding all of this at the moment?

    Here for you and listening to you if you would like to share more with us. However, you only need to share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with  :)

    I can hear how your mum doesn't like it if a person is on the very mild side of a learning disability @Splatmate24. Could you tell us more about this and how it makes you feel?

    It is really positive to hear you have your own boundaries. As I said on another thread, this is an important aspect of taking care of yourself and helping you to keep yourself safe.

    It sounds really frustrating that you keep receiving no responses on these disabled dating sites and membership selling out and closing out with others.

    I can hear your determination though! Hopefully, things will get better for you soon  :)

    @L_Volunteer i can get message from guys from disabled but just seem to be the guys that I'm not that interested and also most of them are outside of UK and most them are from USA and other countries . none is near me  is not looking for same thing as me  that i'm only looking for serious long term relationship and some are just looking for friendship that i did get rejected on hiki and i'm not interested being friends . i also did put that in my profile and still got guys that just want nothing more then just friends . so i just give up with disabled dating sites and try mainstream dating sites has be more successful . some guy got turn off instant when they ask question about sex and i didn't like that and blocked them . I get tons of like and message from guy on mainstream dating sites . some guys are near my age . I'm only like one guy that i met off a dating app called chat & date is same brand of badoo and  he has mild  asperger's syndrome . did ask question and did try to get know and what social media that i prefer to used and also ask question what i do like and i ask question about some buses that go to his town that are called Cheshire cats buses and said i have lots of them coming from my town warrington and his town is northwich  both went to college in  northwich. other guys are that i seen seem not be more interested in that guy that is been textig to quiet a well and has been good .did also text about birthday and i did ask when his birthday was and he said 16 of July and he asked when my birthday and i said is 15 July  that is one of rarest thing that can happen to find out with common interested on birthday . i was in happy shocked,

    At least you can recognise it as red flags for you by knowing you are looking for different things @Splatmate24.

    Though, it doesn't sound like you have had the best luck, unfortunately. Hopefully, you'll receive better luck soon.

    Really positive to hear you have also had experiences where they have tried to understand your preferences though and hear more about you.

    Ooh, very similar birthdays then :)
