Hi everyone I’m 21 years old and have mild cerebral palsy, I’d like to get myself out there and hope it meet someone, I was just wondering if anyone knows of dating apps or any local events that are good for meeting disabled young adults? 
Thank you!

    Hey @Darce21, how are you today? Thanks for sharing 😁
    I’m wondering how you may like to meet somebody? What kind of activities do you enjoy?
    There are quite a few apps and sites out there. Have you looked or tried any yet?
    Sorry for all the questions! If you would like some dating app/sites recommendations, I’m happy to help

    Hey @Leo_Aces
    I’m good thanks how are you? 
    Thanks for getting back to me! 
    I don’t mind how I meet someone,
    weather it’s online or not, I’ve tried tinder and badoo, had no
    luck. 
    any recommendations would be helpful thank you!

    Hey @Darce21, I’m good thanks.
    Cool, I definitely think finding activities and communities either online or in person, is a good way to start meeting like minded people,

    Regarding sites and apps, 
    Taimi- it says that it’s mainly for the LGBTQIA+ community but also users seem quite open minded around Disability https://taimi.com/

    Facebook Dating is now growing in popularity and there’s the option to make friends too

    I’ve found Tinder and Match can be a little hit and miss
