The agency, which will be called Kindred Spirits and will be open to anyone aged 18 upwards with a learning disability, has been made possible by a £20,000, three-year donation from the directors of F Le Gallais and Sons.As reported, the dating service was scheduled to start in August, spearheaded by David Harburn who knows that it's difficult to find a mate if you have a learning disability since he was born with cerebral palsy.Regardless of disability, starting a relationship when you feel rubbish about yourself may not be the best way forward.If you believe you’re inferior, you’ll be perceived that way: but if you think about what maintains a relationship after initial attraction, it’s more likely to be a great sense of humour, thoughtfulness or a sense of adventure, than a ‘perfect’ outer form.He may be more likely than his peers to make poor choices about sex, drugs and alcohol use.He may also say or do things that are hurtful without foreseeing the damage it may do to his relationship. He may think a friendly chat with a girl in math class is reason to send her a dozen roses the next day.Sadly, we live in a culture in which pressure to be ‘perfect’ is rife, which can make it all too easy to believe that disability equals sexual exclusion.
