It's important for everyone to ensure they're safe online - especially when online dating for disabled singles. It doesn't matter what dating site or service you use, being familiar with safety procedures and aware of red flags can ensure you don't find yourself in a tricky situation later on.
There are many different elements of safety to look out for on the internet and on dating sites. At SingleDisabled we strive to make our dating site as safe as possible. From data protection, to welfare of our users, we're always keeping on top of our safety measures.
Our users are the best thing to us, so in order to keep you safe, we ensure that anything that's marked as a red flag or brought to our attention is dealt with swiftly or removed from the site.
Users who are misusing our service will also be removed.
We have a handy search feature on our site which allows users to search for people based on certain criteria, however we don't allow users to search via specific disabilities or conditions.
This helps to deter those who might be using the site for fetish reasons - as we don't give you the option to search for particular conditions. Thus protecting all our users and encouraging healthy matches through connection and conversation.
However we do have dedicated pages for Deaf Dating and Amputee Dating which can encourage those groups of people to meet others who understand them more.
As most websites do, we also collect and store various information about our users. But we have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that it has under its control from unauthorised access, improper use, disclosure, unauthorised destruction or accidental loss.
This information includes subscription and payment details and in the event of a lost or stolen card, fraud or other, SingleDisabled will cooperate fully in keeping you and your personal details safe by providing the relevant information in order to get the issue sorted.
Our service is also restricted to 18+ and anyone deemed to be under the age of 18 will be immediately removed from the site.
Knowing how to keep yourself safe on SingleDisabled is really important too. I'm sure we've all heard about dating going wrong. But knowing what to look out for can ensure your online dating experience is as enjoyable as possible!
Sadly, scammers target people on dating sites a lot. Also known as romance scams, these people may be luring you in in order to get money or gifts from you. They may ask for your bank details, when they feel like you're in a place of trust. Or sometimes they'll say they want to visit you but can't afford the transport.
There are other more serious types of scammers who use people on dating sites for money laundering and may ask you to accept money into your bank account and transfer it elsewhere. This is a serious offence and you should never agree to do it.
Although being scammed on a dating site might be rare, there are other safety concerns which are more common. You should never give out any personal information - for any reasons - which would include bank details, birthdate, your address, where you study or work.
Unless you build a relationship with someone and trust them, you might then start to provide more information about yourself.
By staying in the app and conversing this way (until you get to know them, trust them or build a relationship with them), you're much safer because SingleDisabled is able to monitor anything that might be amiss. As soon as you take it outside the app, it's out of our control.
You'll also want to get to know them first before agreeing to meet up. If someone asks you for a date within the first 10 minutes, you might want to decline!
And always trust your gut when it comes to online dating. Disabled dating relies a lot on trust and using our instincts and intuition is a helpful way to know how we feel about a person or a situation. If something feels wrong, it probably is.
When it comes to meeting someone from SingleDisabled and going on a date, meeting somewhere public and local is an important way to stay safe.
Telling a loved one where you're going and what time you'll be due back can help, as well as agreeing some sort of password with a friend which will help you arrange a get out excuse if something feels wrong.
Disabled dating is supposed to be a fun way to experience something new, meet new people and form connections, friendships and love. So although there are important things to look out for to ensure your safety, don't let them put you off trying dating for disabled singles. Be alert, report anything suspicious, unusual or inappropriate and never agree to anything you don't want to do!
