Online Dating Service for the Blind?

Most of the organizations in my area are open only during the time that I work M-F in my FT position and I would very much like to meet and date someone who like me is partially sighted or fully blind so we have more in common.

Does anyone know of any decent sites online for the blind interested in dating other blind people?
