It's an article by a woman who doesn't like the idea of specialized dating apps, e.g. for disabled people. She prefers mainstream dating apps despite all the problems she has had with them.

The article was written in response to the existence of a dating website/app called Dateability, which specializes in disabled people.

Personally, I don't like the whole idea of today's vast mainstream mass-market dating websites/apps. If I personally were ever to use a dating website/app, I would consider only very small specialized ones aimed at specific demographics.

- Autistic peer-led groups (via text-based chat, currently) led or facilitated by members of the Autistic Peer Leadership Group.
- My Twitter (new as of 2021)

It is called sexual selection.

Even the chimps do it.

There is a whole lot to unpack in that article.

Unfortunately, the world does not owe anyone a partner.

I found this statement interesting:

"I have had several success stories, and when those relationships ended, it wasn’t because of my disability. It was because we found other reasons to be fatally incompatible: The sex wasn’t great, the spark wasn’t there or the long distance took its toll."

So she is capable of having relationships. Several of them.
