Do people with Down syndrome date? I am not at expert on the subject but can tell you about April and her friends. The answer is yes they date. April has just celebrated her 5th year anniversary with her boyfriend. She keeps track of how many years they’ve been dating and the date of her first date. This past summer she bought a present and card for her boyfriend. Their “anniversary” was Oct. 4th but my girl likes to be prepared way ahead of time. She also planned how they would celebrate!
Having Down syndrome didn’t stop these two from falling in love and enjoying each others company for the last 5 years. Friday night they are going to a Halloween Dance with friends. Some of their friends will go with dates and others won’t. They will all be together having fun just like any group of friends.
