Kate: For me, it is very important to have a relationship. With the right support, obviously, people with a learning disability can find love and get married. They need a basic understanding of what a relationship is and what it involves, and then if they have the extra support it will help them to fulfil their lives. Once they have the support, then they can be encouraged to fulfil their relationship dreams. At first, I was a bit apprehensive and nervous about how I would find a relationship, but once I joined, I made friends really quickly and then I found the guy of my dreams. I said there is going to be another series of Undateables next year. You have to be careful with the dating agencies on the internet and who you meet, as it could be dangerous. I know when I have tried non-specialist dating agencies in the past, I was wrong from them.
Nine years ago, I was in a perfect relationship and then we split up. I wanted to have a new relationship and to go slow. I would like to carry on and make it successful with some one else. Kate: Signing up to the dating agency was easy to do. I would recommend it for people to look for a relationship. She wants to apply, so I am going to give her the contact details to get involved.
