    Hi @Jessel

    Good Morning.

    I am very very sorry but we don’t offer a “Dating Svs” on our “Community Platform”

    But we do offer “help/advice” to our many members.

    To which you are very happy in using if you require require any of these.

    Dating can be a minefield can't it? I have to admit that I've never used online dating services but from experiences in life I know that it is better, to be honest, and straight-up with people. If they cannot handle my disability it's their issue, not mine. There are sensible folk out there who are able to see the person and not the impairment.

    I am currently creating a campaign which fights for diverse representation and empowerment in sex for disabled people. If you are disabled, it would be great if you could take a minute or two to fill out this survey. It will really help my campaign, and don't worry - the results are anonymous!

    For those who do not have a disability, it would also really help me if you could share this link, or send it to a friend who might fill it in. 

    Thanks so much,
