This is a free dating site where you can find a friend or that special someone–people who share a similar disability or rare medical condition as yours. Chronic odor is my own condition, and I can only speak with other people like me about it because only they can relate to the struggles of living with it.

Someone here wants to meet you!
This site does not discriminate on the basis of religion, gender, race, sexual orientation, or of anything else. You can register for this site even if you don’t have a disability or rare condition and you wouldn’t mind dating someone who does have one. All who thirst for companionship are welcome.
This website seeks to remedy the fact that we with our conditions don’t quite fit in with the “regular” dating sites. After all, we are no less human, no less capable of love, no less desiring of falling in love. So, why should we be left out?
One of the key benefits of registering is your ability to use the “Members Living Near You” page. There you can find your country or state and see if there are any members listed underneath it. Then, after logging in, simply click on any member’s username and you’ll be taken directly to that member’s profile page where you can “friend” him or her or send them a private message.
Upon registering and then logging in for the first time, you will receive a Welcome email with additional information about the site.
Click here to register for free. You’ll be meeting new and interesting people in no time.
This site is a bit more intimate than the average support group website. Though there is public posting, the posting is a little less public and more private here, between members. So, there is more emphasis on intimacy and privacy than publicity. The only component of this site that more resembles the average support group is a private group which can be created by any member, and any member can ask to join it.
For people with a mental disorder, you may also want to check out this website: https://www.nolongerlonely.com/
As for those of you who don’t have a rare condition, only use this site if you’re 100% sure that you will not reject a member (after a physical meeting) solely for his or her disorder. Otherwise, please join another dating site.
As far as I know (as of 2015), this is the first site of its kind, but I’m sure not the last. Others will follow and improve upon this one. As a result, thousands of people just like us will meet others just like us and fall in love and perhaps even raise families. I’m hoping that will happen beginning with this first site (if this is the first site of its kind).
However, this is not just a dating site. Without needing to register, you can click on any of the pages on the left to learn about chronic odor remedies and treatments (if that is your condition), and also links to support groups for various types of disabilities and conditions. There is also a page dedicated to jobs and info on certain addictions.
I hope you enjoy yourself and meet that special someone. You deserve it. Cheers! Here’s to…
ROMANCING RARE HEARTS
Hiding in dark corners Like an untouchable in shame, Afraid to talk, afraid to love, Afraid to play the game.
If I were to reach out and touch you, Would you back away from me? Or would you see me as God’s creation, Like an apple or a tree?
