ND = neurodiverse, aspie.

That's possible.

I think it would be possible to setup ND friendly dating sites. It's just that you need to know how the process works and how to do it online instead of IRL. Looking at game playing sites like IMVU would certainly be a good idea because those do draw on ND relationship preferences.

I think that would be difficult to try find a success like that. How we able to segregate a group to make that happen? We cannot go like advertise 'this is a new aspie dating website' on our billboard signs, community centres and the like. The problem is finding the right demographics. In Australia its fairly diapered, and in cities are uniform.

Aspies appears to find each others on IMVU, and not all of the role playing is about imaginary relationships confined to the site. A few are in relationships for real as well.

I'd say joining IMVU (provided you enjoy role playing) might be a lot more effective than joining any dating site.

I live in Australia. So we don't have that like what US and UK have. Like in the UK they have disabilities dating agency, we don't have at all. I guess our population is too small.

A video dating site could be aimed at NTS and NDS but it would be like autistic friendly and promote acceptance of autism.

If anyone has the programming skills for it I'm up for the shared project

I doubt even Alex isn't interested in it.

He's not the only programmer aspie, but even he's said in the past money is tight for him even to run this site.

I'd be able to put up a simple video dating site, but I think this is too simplistic to work.

How does the video site would do? I think its better off meeting people in reality, off the internet.

So your dating profile would be written as normal but you would also post and introductory video of yourself so people can see your personality instead of interpreting just writing.

Then if you want to talk to someone you can either video chat live or you can send videos to each other for the person to watch when they next come on

Like the messaging but using a video clip

Oh yea that is brilliant idea apparently. Video showing the real you especially the personality, quirks and the likes. That would be easily avoid judging by its cover.

So far on PoF, I don't have any replies for a week, despite those who are online much. I guess I am embedded in their messages because guys kept sending them messages? I have few who viewed my profile after I messaged them and they don't reply after. I think this is where they are judging me by its cover?

You should be thankful for such an approach because you would get selected-out without any dating, and thus would experience less rejection.

I do understand that you want to pass as normal, but it is hardly a successful method that will get you anywhere.

Personally, if I was actively dating, I could use such an approach to easily find ND girls by looking for stims. This would be far easier and more accurate than analyzing text for ND preferences.

Have we got a section where we can see if anyone has the skills to help create this idea.

Yes. That's how online dating works.

They were intrigued enough to look at your profile, but didn't like what they saw enough to write or respond to your message.

You're also judging girls online by their covers, so it evens out.
