Prescription4Love Adds More Site Categories
MAY 05, 2008By Press Release, Prescription4LovePrescription4Love.com, the dating and friendship service for people with numerous health conditions, has again added more categories. The social networking web Site is an increasingly popular stop for people with medical conditions looking for love and friendship. Started by a diabetes-sufferer to honor his late brother who had Crohns Disease, the site helps imperfect people make perfect connections.
"The number of people signing up at Prescription4Love has been consistently strong," according to Ricky Durham (President of Prescription4love.com). "We are still getting many requests to include additional conditions in our database to aid people in finding friends in similar circumstances."
Prescription4Love.com added these health condition categories:
- COPD/Asthma/Breathing Disorders
- Psychiatric Disorders/Bipolar
- Blindness/Eye Health
- Heart Disease/Stroke/Angioplasty
- Cerebral Palsy
- Dyslexia/Speech and Language Disorders
- Tourette Syndrome
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Anxiety Disorders
- Psoriasis/Dermatitis/Skin Problems
These join the site's original categories (Cancer, Diabetes, IBS and IBD, Obesity, Deafness, Allergies, Hepatitis, Infertility/Impotence, HIV, Herpes, Recovering Alcoholics, Epilepsy, Arthritis, Little People, Multiple Sclerosis, Paraplegic, Quadriplegic, Transplant Patients, Parkinson's Disease, Burn Victims, Lupus, HPV).
"These additional conditions should make even more people feel at home with our service," Durham said.
Prescription4Love.com is an online dating and friendship service specializing in particular health circumstances, including STD conditions. These days, many people are seeking friends online and consequently, specialized alternative dating services have emerged. Dating with a health condition or STD can be awkward, especially when it comes time to divulge that condition, so an online service such as Prescription4Love.com (www.prescription4love.com.) can be a great help.
Ricky points out, "Finding others with similar circumstances is a natural desire for everyone. Honesty is important, but finding an opportune situation to raise such subjects can be difficult. (www.prescription4love.com) By using Prescription4Love.com, you can be honest in advance and progress to the next stages of friendships and relationships."
Prescription4Love.com was created several years ago. "My brother had Crohns Disease (under IBD); at times he weighed between 75 lb. to 125 lb. His normal weight should have been around 150 lb," Durham said. "It was hard for him to disclose his disease to anyone, but it was really hard for him to tell someone he had a colostomy bag. So I thought if he met someone at a web site where everyone had the same condition, there would be nothing to disclose."
Keith passed away July 15, 2004. (Keith's bio) Back then Prescription4Love.com was in the developmental stage but he liked the idea.
"Prescription4Love.com is an idea created for my brother and similar people with specific health conditions who want to improve their lives by finding friendship or love," Durham said.
Prescription4Love.com plans to be a free service initially to build its customer base. Eventually, users will be offered a low monthly fee, a portion of which will be given to a charity for each condition.
