World’s First Spectrum Specific Social Site Builds Relationships That Last
Harmonious relationships are set to soar with the launch of the world's first dating and social site created BY people on the spectrum FOR people on the spectrum. SpectrumSingles.com offers US and European based users a chance to build meaningful relationships based on unique spectrum attributes. Whether an individual on the spectrum is searching for a meaningful relationship or long lasting friendships, the pioneering platform is set to emerge as an invaluable hub for the global autistic community.
Thanks to the site’s innovative Spectrum Compatibility Test, users can narrow down search fields from thousands of members to just a handful of specially selected individuals. The intelligent algorithm actively notes spectrum attributes and selects matches based on compatibility.
The test is the first of its kind for people on the spectrum and is set to help autistic individuals across the globe find their perfect match. After completing the test, members are assigned a color based on results. These are then used to pair members with spectrum compatible matches of the same color. For those that live by the mantra of ‘opposites attract’, the site’s My Spectrum function allows members to include other colors in their list of prospective matches. While the Spectrum Compatibility Test is not a diagnostic assessment with the ability to indicate whether or not an individual is on the autism spectrum, it does serve a unique social matching purpose.
Olivia Cantu, co-founder of SpectrumSingles.com said, “When launching SpectrumSingles.com, I not only wanted to create a website for autistic people to connect, but I also wanted to offer the world’s first spectrum specific compatibility test. Every one of us is unique and the test is designed to help pinpoint personal attributes and suggest tailor made matches based on individual traits.”
In addition to the Spectrum Compatibility Test, members also enjoy access to an array of useful features. These include an advanced search function, customized profile builder, private messaging inbox, Member Chat, SPAM protection, photo albums, member newsfeed, events, blogs, community forums, and much more.
SpectrumSingles.com was born when 18-year-old, Olivia Cantu identified a cavernous gap in the market for a spectrum specific social platform. After toying with initial site designs, Cantu turned her ‘kitchen table’ concept into a fully functional online dating and relationship site. Realizing that someone with business experience would also be needed to get the idea off the ground, Cantu partnered with Kirsten Fitzpatrick, an autistic entrepreneur and self-advocate who was honored to be asked to join the SpectrumSingles team. Today the industrious pair manage site operations while also fulfilling their own study and career commitments. Cantu is a full time college student majoring in Gaming Production and Design. In addition to co-owning and operating other businesses, Fitzpatrick is working toward licensure as a clinical counselor. Both Cantu and Fitzpatrick are on the autism spectrum.
As members continue to roll in, SpectrumSingles.com has its sight set on expanding its online presence. The platform is currently in the process of launching its very own YouTube channel where members can submit videos documenting their amusing experiences with dating in a NT dominated world. The channel will also provide a place for members to share tips and advice for navigating the dating and social scenes. Members will be invited to enter contests, vote for their favorite entries and snap up an array of cherry-picked prizes.
