Whilst researching autism-friendly dating websites recently for the new l ifestyle section of AdultsWithAutism, I came to the conclusion that I would not recommend any of these websites.

The first few results in Google search revealed autistic dating sites that appeared-at best-unregulated and unmanaged by anyone with knowledge of autism. The worst examples, were sites that did not seem to care about the safety of potentially vulnerable autistic people.

As an experiment, I signed up for one these websites. Having registered, I was immediately shown a page full of people with autism and their profiles. Before I could go any further, I was taken to a page where I was asked for my credit card details. It was something like £20 per month to contact a certain amount of possible dates. And that is what this particular dating site was all about: Making money. I'm not anti-business, but this is unethical and could put a vulnerable person in a dangerous or compromising position.
