Online Dating Sets Disabled People Free

Traditionally society has disregarded the sexual and emotional needs of disabled people preferring to treat them as asexual and assuming that sex was a non-issue for most. Disabled people too believed themselves to be unattractive, as they did not fit into the usual standards of beauty set by society.

It is little wonder then that many of those living with disabilities or limiting medical conditions have bad self-images and suffer from low self-esteem. Many try to conform to society’s expectations and suppress any sexual desire they may feel. They prefer to ignore their sexuality, as they feel guilty about having such thoughts.

Disabled people have also faced isolation in the area of formal sex education. In line with the general view of – they don’t need it, many sex education programmes overlook the disabled youngster. This leaves many experiencing sexual desires but having no idea of how to handle them or who to turn to for help.

The situation is as difficult for those who face a deliberating or life threatening disease or become disabled suddenly. There are so many issues to cope with at this time that their sex lives are often pushed to the background. However, questions ranging from whether sexual activity is possible to how soon and with what adjustments it can resume remain major concerns. Self-esteem too takes a beating, as the person feels inadequate compared to earlier.

The truth of the matter is that those who suffer from impairments also enjoy sex and have the same longings to be touched and loved as anyone else. However there are not enough counselling services to address these issues. Nor are there many options which let these feelings come out into the open.

The emergence of online dating sites especially for the disabled have indeed made a big difference and set a lot of people free from feelings of frustration. Through these dating sites the disabled single can now connect with others who understand their impairment and initiate new friendships and romantic relationships without fearing rejection.

In addition to setting up dating and matrimonial alliances, the sites also provide an opportunity to network with people all over the globe. Disabled people can log on the web to get advice and information especially on matters related to sex and relationships. They can interact with others through discussion forums, message boards and chat rooms as well as gather knowledge on matters related to disabilities through interesting articles on a wide range of subjects.

Dating sites for the disabled can be both free and commercial. There are sites that are for specific disabilities or conditions like multiple sclerosis or visual impairment alongside those that are more general. Some sites offer adult sex and adult chat rooms while others may simply act as introduction services. Many dating sites have special features that are unique to them.

As a result of this vast variety of information and services on offer, the dating sites have not only educated society but also have also set disabled people free from their inhibitions.

Chatting Rooms

Chatting Rooms, more commonly known as chat rooms, are virtual places where people meet online to talk to each other with text, audio and video. Chat rooms have been very popular since the early days of the internet and their popularity has not faded over time.

People of all walks of life enjoy using chatting rooms to talk, joke, share their experiences, exchange ideas, thoughts or simply get to know each other. Chat rooms are like interactive message boards where you post a message and get responses right away. Additionally, chatting rooms typically come with private messaging features which allow chatters to take a public conversation with one individual into a private area.

The invention of webcams certainly had a great impact on chatting habits. While in the early days chat meant exchanging text messages, now chatting is a multimedia experience where chatters exchange not only text but also audio and video. You can use a microphone to have a voice conversation with other chatters and you can use a webcam to have a video chat as well. In fact some people don’t even bother typing they simply talk and broadcast themselves with their webcams; they have video conferences instead of simple text-chatting sessions.

Some of the most popular chatting rooms are offered by major Internet companies such as Yahoo and America Online. Yahoo Chat used to be the most popular chatting place of a large number of internet chatters. Unfortunately because of its success it was also a preferred target of spammers and bot creators.- Bots are computer programs that are used to spam chat rooms, they usually use female screen names to entice male users to click on links to adult sites. -Yahoo chat rooms were also used by pedophiles, like many free chat rooms available on the web. Nowadays, many restrictions have been added to Yahoo chat to prevent abuses by spammers and sex predators. AIM chat rooms are also available and are still quite a bit popular especially among people living in America. Google also offers chat rooms, in a 3D environment, with Lively. The Google Lively rooms can be added to other sites and people visiting those sites can enter the rooms and chat. Social networking sites also allow their users to join chat rooms. Myspace has chat rooms available to users who are logged in where they can chat with other Myspace users online and present in the rooms. Some ‘older’ sites such as ICQ also have chat rooms though they are not as popular as they used to be when there were fewer other chatting rooms to compete with.

Of course major internet companies are not the only ones to offer free chat rooms, in fact you’ll find chatting rooms available on many less known sites. The difference with major chat rooms and non-major chat rooms is of course the number of users you’ll find. Typically Yahoo chat rooms and AIM chat rooms will always have many users present and chatting. Google Lively is a more recent site therefore it has yet to gain the momentum chat giants such as Yahoo has.

Some chat rooms like the Yahoo chat rooms require that the user not only join Yahoo but also install a piece of software on his/her computer. Other chat rooms such as AIM chat rooms do require user registration but are completely web-based and don’t require any software download. There are also chat rooms that don’t require any form of registration at all, the user simply chooses a nickname and enters the chat room.

While many chat rooms are available for free and accessible to anybody who meet the required criteria to enter the rooms- like age restriction or site membership – others are only accessible when the user pays a fee. Indeed there are paid chat rooms as well. Usually paid chat rooms are moderated chat rooms which are dedicated to a restricted group of individuals. Very often you will find paid chat rooms on dating sites. Some paid chat rooms are offered as part of a membership package for a paid site. Sometimes those paid chat rooms will also allow limited access to non-paying members.

Nowadays anybody can create his/her own free chat rooms simply by adding a few lines of codes on his webpage. Many people add chat rooms on their profiles on social networking sites or on their blogs. Those chat rooms allow anybody who visits a web page to chat with the owner of the page if he/she’s online or with anybody else visiting the page at that time.

Internet chatting rooms still have many glorious years ahead of them while they will certainly evolve with technology and web surfing habits they will still remain popular as internet users are continuously looking for quality chat rooms to join.

Can Your Spouse Have An Affair With An On-Line Partner

Fifteen years ago my now ex-wife was free chatting on a primitive chat site with whomever was available. Not a dating site, but then there weren’t any back then. She would chat with intensity; all night long, 18 to 24 hour stints. She would wrap herself around the computer and entertain her partner all night long.

The chatting to other men was debilitating enough, but hers was extreme, intimate, chat, enhanced with paraphernalia, self-stimulation and long distance telephone calls. It just didn’t seem right.I had great difficulty in accepting, let alone even tolerating, her actions. I just didn’t like it, I was crushed by it. My wife knew how I felt, I told her many times. But, she couldn’t be without it. Her position was “I’m going to do this, you may as well get used to it.” She expected me to accept anything she did just so I could have her around.

On one occasion my wife offered up a solution. She was going to a friend’s and she told me I should get on the computer. I should ask the other “chatters” what I should do. I should share my “problem” with them and see if they could help me. She saw it as “my problem” rather than her infidelity, or her lack of judgment, or her inconsiderate feelings toward our union and relationship. I should go on the computer, talk to the people she spends her nights with and ask them to help me out with my “problem.”

I seldom went on the Internet. If I did, it was to play games, or to research or to work on a book I was writing. Once I figured out what went on at this site, I avoided it. I just didn’t want to do it. Cyber-sex didn’t interest me, it didn’t do anything for me and I was not going to get involved. My wife left for her friend’s house and I turned on the computer. I went on the Internet and then to that site. I entered the adult world and sat and stared for the longest time.

This was not what I wanted to do. I’m healthy; I have more than the usual sex drive. I just don’t like this shotgun type of approach to random intimacy. I could easily see how much fun it could be to a single person, but my wife and I were not single. Against my better judgment I regained my composure and decided to do what my wife had suggested. I quickly typed a message that went something like;”I have this problem. My wife gets on here and has cyber-sex with whomever and whenever she likes. I can’t tolerate it. I feel cheated on. Can anybody help me?”

It was short and sweet. I broadcast my plea; sent it out to the entire audience at once. Everyone who was currently on the adult part of that site saw it for at least a second or two. They had the choice, when a message would come on the screen, to immediately delete it, or to respond to it. Probably many of them just threw it away but there were far too many who were more than willing to share their thoughts on the issue. I received dozens of responses. So many answers were coming in, in such a rapid secession that I had no time to respond. The message balloons would eventually disappear if they were not acknowledged in some manner. It was all I could do to just read them and move on.

People had all kinds of “helpful” things to say;”Grow-up” “Get a life” “Let her have her fun!” “It’s only fantasy!” “She isn’t hurting anybody.” “You idiot, just play along with her.” “Stop it, you are messing it up for all of us out here who are just trying to have fun.” Finally, one message came shining through like a blazing spotlight. It seemed to sit there and sparkle. While others danced around it, it stood there and shouted at me. I just stared at it for what seemed an eternity. I was so relieved and grateful for at least one real message, one true response.

Someone had taken the time to really read what I had written, to understand what was going on in my head, to empathize with my pain and to transcend their compassion through the airwaves. There it was, there was no denying it.”I know what you are going through. I am going through the same thing.”There was someone else in this crazy new elecgtronic world that felt like I did, who thought the same way I did, who also felt abused and ignored. At least one other person out there understood my problem.

I felt I was almost to the point where I would have to tell myself “Well if everybody else feels the same way my wife does then it must be me.” It was so hard for me to believe that I was that far in the wrong on an issue like this, but every message was chastising me for feeling this way, so it must be me. What else could it have been other than my inability to cope? Until this one shining, fleeting message, this one last hope in the midst of everything else “wrong” came gleaming into my life.

I frantically tried to respond to this wonderful soul but the other messages were popping up so fast, they were blocking that one out and they were preventing me from responding. I had to keep deleting the nasty ones just to get to the one lonely good one. But I lost it; it was gone. Then suddenly, another one came in from the same person.”Well, I can see you are busy. I am headed out to go to breakfast, look me up sometime.”They were simple, yet woeful, words; just a few, plain, understanding, empathetic syllables. I just sat there and read it again and again until it automatically flashed off.

I had gotten her screen name and had written it down. Just to be able to speak to someone in the same situation would be a relief of some kind I just knew it. You see, that one lonely message didn’t come from just anybody. That message came from my one and only, true, future love. That is the making of an entirely different story but suffice it to say, this is how my current wife and I met. Our partners, of that time, threw us both at each other. They both told us to get on the computer. I was told to try to find help while my future wife’s partner told her, with a derogatory snicker;”Hey, come look at this idiot. You need to talk to him.”She did come take a look, she did respond to my message, she did talk to me, and here we are.

She was going through the same thing I was going through. Her mate was spending all of his time on the computer with other women. He was setting up meetings, accepting mail from his cyber girl friends’ at his Mom’s place, making telephone calls and all in all doing what we could not tolerate any longer.My emotional pain seemed to mean nothing to those on the computer. It was all about their immediate gratification at any cost. It didn’t matter who was hurt in the process, just let me do what I want, when I want, and with whomever I want to do it with.

The site I met my wife on wasn’t an on-line dating site but you will find the same type of people I dealt with on this early chat site on any of the current date sites. My wife and I were thrust at each other. I continue to reap the rewards; day after day after day. We talked on the computer for three months before we ever looked at each other. When we first laid eyes on one another we knew we had realized our purpose. We were finally in one another’s life and we would stay there.

I think it would take a great deal of investigation and questioning to ever give any level of trust to anyone you speak with on the Internet. All the usual suggestions; meet in a public place, meet only for coffee, meet during the day, you make the first call, don’t give out your phone number, and so on, apply. There indeed are honest, loving people desperately searching for you. You need to let them find you but you also need to make certain you know who they are.

Missing Persons Investigations of a New Age

George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four was first published in 1949. You’d have thought that his vision would no longer be up-to-date 65 years later. The world he described was a world where Big Brother was watching people, constantly seeking information about crime think or any other kind of offence against the glorious super state of Oceania.

Edward Snowden showed us, that what Big Brothers these days are doing is not all that different from what Orwell described. Sure, the technology is quite different from what he had envisioned, but Orwell’s novel is not about science and technology, but about the horrible world where governments might monitor our every move, observe us in our most intimate moments and know about everything we do. Modern day supercomputers, satellites and all sorts of technology make that easily possible for various government agencies.

Yet there is so much information out there that is easily accessible without any spying satellites, supercomputers or without bugging mobile phones. It’s the information millions of users are putting online every day of their own free will, just to get some likes, re-tweets or shares. People tell themselves that they are doing this to stay in touch with each other, but they fail to realize how much of their personal information they are giving away every moment of every day.

With more than half of Australians being active on Facebook, it seems like this would be the most promising social network to start an investigation. The information found on Facebook is truly varied. There are photographs, comments as well as check-ins that give away a person’s current location. Furthermore there is a time stamp on everything, which makes it easy to create a collage of events a person went through at a certain time. No special equipment is needed for all of this with much of it capable of being performed with a simple smart phone.

Of course people tend to forget, that social media doesn’t mean just Facebook and Twitter. Apart from other household names like LinkedIn, Google+ or Pinterest, there are dozens of other smaller, niche websites that cater to all sorts of profiles. Finding information across all of these platforms can turn into a large investigation on its own.

Investigating social media is not only about snooping either. People tend to forget, that Facebook is first and foremost a platform for communication. As many people from the younger generations no longer even have a landline and choose not to publicly reveal their mobile number, Facebook and other social media may be an easy way of tracking them down for communication or to even serve court documents.

Being a private investigator and not knowing anything about social media is something that has become unimaginable in this day and age. While traditional methods such as surveillance are still very effective, they are considerably supplemented with comprehensive desktop investigation based on extensive social media profiling and as the next generation moves more of their life onto the internet the value of this brand of profiling is only going to increase.

Ecommerce – The Importance of Having a Privacy Policy

A privacy policy, also known as an information management policy, is an agreement between a website operator and a website user that determines how the operator intends to use, collect, store, share, and protect the data that the user shares through interactions with the website. Even a little more than a decade ago, some commercial websites did not have privacy policies, but now, virtually all websites have one. These policies, which should be separate from the website’s terms of use agreement, are a necessity for several different reasons.

The Policy Can Foster Transparency and Trust between Operators and Users

In connection with privacy policies, website users usually want to know two things: what information the website collects and how that information is used. Best business practices dictate that website operators let users know the answers to those two questions and let them know how to control that use.

Some websites inform users that they simply collect information for their own use, and other websites disclose that they provide that information to third parties under certain circumstances. eBay’s privacy policy, for instance, tells users that it does not “disclose your personal information to third parties for their marketing and advertising purposes” without the user’s explicit consent. The policy says eBay may share personal information to third parties when it is necessary to prevent fraud or use the eBay website’s core functions. The extended version of eBay’s reader-friendly policy could be improved by specifically informing users at what points of service the information is collected and how it is shared at each point.

A website should also update users whenever the privacy policy changes. It should let the users know when the new policy will go into effect, and it may allow users to agree to the changes, explicitly through a dialogue box or implicitly through continued use of the website.

The Policy Can Help Shield You from Legal Liability

Although there is no general federal law outlining privacy policy requirements for websites that collect information from adults, several state laws and minor-specific federal laws exist. For instance, the California Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003 (OPPA) requires that website privacy policies must contain certain information, including: “personally identifying information collected, the categories of parties with whom this personally identifying information may be shared, and the process for notifying users of material changes to the applicable privacy policy.” The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requires operators to maintain a privacy policy if the website is directed to children under the age of 13 or knowingly collects information from children under the age of 13.
