Here I've been diving deep into the issues of partners, possibly neglecting all the single PWDs outRx4love_logo there and their particular challenges. Well, today I found this: "Singles with special health conditions find cure for loneliness at Prescription4Love.com"

For real. It's an Internet dating service that helps connect people with "special conditions" seeking companionship, including diabetes, cancer, STDs, hepatitis, impotence or a physical disability.

Here's how they describe themselves: "Honesty and integrity are hallmarks at Prescription4Love. By having clients divulge their health status upfront, the service nixes awkward conversations (and broken hearts). Instead, Romeos and Juliets can move on to other dating difficulties, like: What do you look like? What do you do? How much do you earn?"

Now I tend to cover these kind of things tongue-in-cheek, but I did want to note here that some of our best friends have found their partners on the Web! Really. One couple we know that met three years ago at JDate are having a baby this Fall. Hooray for technology! (And even though I've been married to my sweet German Goy-Boy for 15 years, I like to joke that if it doesn't work out with him, I'm going shopping on the Net for a nice Jewish Diabetic Guy :)

So maybe Prescription4Love.com is worth a try? Site use is free for a limited time, followed by a subscription service, although the dollar amount wasn't readily clear.
