If it’s a broken heart you’re worried about, there’s less you can do to protect him from that.If it’s the latter you’re most worried about, I’d say you need to articulate exactly what sorts of dangers you’re worried your brother might face. Some suggestions: encourage him to meet people offline doing activities he enjoys; steer him to websites that allow him to see photos and profiles of people before interacting with them; look for online dating sites for people with disabilities; help him craft a dating profile that adequately conveys his challenges; instruct him not to give out his physical address to anyone he hasn’t met in person yet; tell him not to give out phone numbers to anyone he hasn’t exchanged at least several emails with—and to always meet dates at a public place, to tell others whom he’ll be meeting as well as when and where, to refrain from giving his last name to anyone he hasn’t yet met in person, and to take a self-defense course.Of course, none of these tips are sure-fire safety measures, but they can definitely add a level of security that it sounds like your brother is currently lacking. If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at [email protected](be sure to read these guidelines first). I’m writing regarding my 21-year-old brother, “Jason.”Jason is a big-hearted person. He can manage his own money wisely, care for himself, cook his own meals, and care for our younger brother and their cats when needed. If you’re unaware of Omegle, it is a one-on-one chat site where it is literally you and a “stranger.” He frequented the site a lot until I caught him passing out his phone number.
(No, setting them up together is absolutely not an option, by the way.).
Should I help him sign up for a proper online dating site?
