    Hi 

    There is a group on facebook called outsiders designed for disabled people 

    All dating sites run some risk tho of fake profiles and scammers  it there are genuine people out there 

    We also have a section here on dating and relationships with some good advice

    Does your son have any other interests @Mlf143? Joining an online social group can be a good way to meet new people with similar interests, and gain confidence too.
