How Disabled Dating Sites Can Help Baby Boomers Looking for Friendship

Disabled dating sites, like Special Bridge, are great for young people to find friends and partners, but you may be surprised to learn about the benefits of these types of sites for baby boomers and seniors with disabilities to make lasting friendships with people who have similar disabilities.

For many older adults, it can be difficult to meet people with similar disabilities. While teenagers and young adults can benefit from school programs and some community activities, there are far fewer programs for older adults with disabilities. If you have autism, Down’s syndrome, or a developmental disability, and you were born before the 1960s, you may feel left out by your peers and isolated from people who have similar disabilities. Special Bridge can help you meet people who are your age and your ability level, so you can create new bonds with people with whom you share things in common.

Disabled dating sites are perfect for baby boomers and seniors with disabilities who are looking for love, whether you are dating for the first time or you are simply looking to get back into the dating game. You’ll be able to look for matches, send messages, and see if there is a spark with that special someone, all through the Special Bridge website. You can move as quickly or as slowly as you are comfortable with, and you and your new match can even meet in person once you are comfortable. Unlike other dating sites geared toward seniors and baby boomers, Special Bridge removes the anxiety and worry that comes with trying to figure out how you will tell your potential match about your disability. You will feel comfortable from the first moment you sign up, and you will never have to worry about being judged for your disability.

Of course, you don’t have to use a disabled dating sites only to look for romance. Special Bridge is a great place to make new friends and build lasting relationships. You can search for people who are only looking for platonic connections, and you can contact people who have similar interests or hobbies, or you can look for people who have the same disabilities as you. Sometimes, connecting with someone who shares the same experiences you do with your type of disability can be a great comfort, making it just a little easier to get through the day when you are having a difficult time.

The world of medical care for people with disabilities has changed greatly over the years, and people who are just beginning adulthood now will never understand the experiences you had when you were growing up. As baby boomers get older, it gets harder to find people who can share these experiences with each other.  This is where Special Bridge comes in. Whether you are looking for romance or friendship, you’ll have no problem meeting people your age who understand who you are and what you are looking for in a relationship.

As you get older, people may suggest going to church groups and bingo nights to meet new people, but you know that there are often very few people who you can relate to at these gatherings. You want to find a space where you can feel safe and comfortable while you meet people who share your unique life experiences. Special Bridge is the best of the disabled dating sites, helping baby boomers and seniors meet like-minded companions for friendship or romance, all in a low-pressure, welcoming environment.

    Just came across this site. I think it is great. I have lot of aches and pains with osteoporosis and arthritis that started to happen when I was a nurse. I also as with many wear 02 especially at night have a sleep disorder. I do not quit smoking. I worked at respiratory hospital for years and for some reason we all got adult onset asthma. I think this site is great I will get back to you when I find out where it is. Being alone after so many years, puts some of us in a position. I am independent, but even though have home in over 55 still have to rake leaves and few other stuff I can not do any more. I do feel love is the best cure and more should really find it also. Friendship is great, respect and love is great too. It is nice to find someone to laugh with, cry with and most important share love.

      I just saw your comment, and I feel the same way you do….. Just recently became ill in The last 5 years, arterial peripheral disease and amputation below the left knee, and aeshimec stroke… And to top it all off, I got kicked to the curb by someone who I thought they loved me.. I really can’t blame her I was healthy when we met and then very quickly became a hot mess…… We’ll just find someone to laugh with what you said cry with.. just go through the ups and downs everyday life..

        I am lonely or wouldn’t be writing on here. I am 80 years old and until about 6 years ago my health started to head down it seems and have ended up in a wheel chair in a nursing home.
        I can still feel, love, and care about others and life. I hurt my left knew years ago while doing my sons paper route and was a smoker so when it came time to fix it the Dr. said I might die om the operating table and wouldn’t do it so cant walk. I have artheritis in my neck and arms, irritable bowel syndrome, the knee problem and arthroscopy om the bottom of my feet so I deal with pain some days and some are good.(I wish I had spell check I see. sorry)

        I am from Minnesota.
        I guess I really want a friend-more would be nice but need friendship more. I am a christian lady. If you like what I wrote tell me about you.
        Am a widow 2 times. My first husband passed away with a heart attack and last passed with liver and lung cancer. Was hard-also have lost 2 daughters-one at bith and one several years ago of cancer.. very hard also.

        Story of my life….best wishes with your health. Arlene

          I am in great health, for 84years, but suffer that the obvious, forgetting where things are, and missing a wife of 62 years. I really want someone to care for, and wanting nothing in return. If you think I’m worth the bother, please “e” mail, I will welcome your comments.

    Hello, first time on this site don’t know exactly what to do or what to expect. Currently a disabled senior 62 year old Hispanic male, baby boomer. I love rock and roll, clubs, concerts still get around well. Interested in companionship based on having fun laughing and perhaps seeing things the same. Really hate drama and baggage. Really more into old-school hippie chicks from the past who of course are now up in age 45 to 55 that take of themselves as well. Not looking for someone to nurse me just someone to be my friend even if that’s all.

      Very well said. Pretty much what I would say. Heck, I’d be happy to find someone just as a pen-pal right now.

      So I want to jump on this train you started and ask the question of the hour… Where is this site of wonder and how much does it cost?

    Where is this site? Why can it be accessed like other dating sites?

    Whaere is this site that sounds so great?

  11. Zerah Tlush

    January 17, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    OK… I clicked around here and it appears you have to join the site before you can access anything. The cost isn’t that bad and you get your 1st month free. There are three membership levels: Basic – which is $7.00 per month; Full Access – $12.00 per month; and Lifetime which is a single fee of $79.00 (Membership Lasts Forever). In all of them you can search, view the member directory & profiles, send messages, add photos & access forums. In the Full Access and Lifetime you also gain access to groups and can chat video & voice chat with friends. Just go to the top of this page & click on “join now” and other catagories. I think it looks pretty good for most, but I found this place by searching “disabled seniors & Baby Boomers”… and I didn’t see a lot in those areas. Also, when you are on a fixed income even $7.00 & & 12.00 per month need to be fit in. I am a disabled older Baby Boomer and wasn’t able to see if this site would be good for me. I mostly live life vicariously by watching tv, youtube, etc, playing MMORPG games, reading, and so forth; but it would be nice to have companionship and conversation with those who are not elfs, orcs, or whatever.
    ……………………………………………………………………….Peace & Blessings Everyone

    Hi all, I’am in my 50’s and suddenly found my self partially disabled! Gee wiz, I never saw this coming for me. In my life plans”” But I’m tired of being alone and I would like to meet some one nice! So if you like movies, parks, or just enjoying some coffee together please let me know….

    • Michael

      January 29, 2020 at 7:21 pm

      Hi Patricia, sorry to hear about your partial disability, especially so early in your life. It must be very out of place and difficult to deal with depending on the severity of it. I’m in my late 60s, look younger, been disabled for 6 yrs.. I’m tired of being alone myself and would very much enjoy a pleasant plutonic relationship with a pleasant lady that you sound to be. Would you further our correspondence by e-mail and then hopefully by phone, if I may be wishful enough to hope our communication goes that far. please forgive me but I can’t give up on hope. If not you lead.

      I have not signed up on yet, but I do intend to
      just found out about it.

    January 29, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    Hi again Patricia, my e-mail address didn’t print out, maybe it’s for the best for now. I might need to join up first, so I will do that and take it from there. Please still respond.

    All the best all the time
