A new online dating site, 2date4love.com, lets users search for partners looking for love but not sex.
You don’t need sex to find romance.
That’s the premise behind a new online dating website targeted at men and women who are unable to have sexual intercourse due to disease or disability.
Created by Laura Brashier, a 50-year-old cervical cancer survivor, 2date4love.com allows users to write details about themselves and look for others with similar interests.
The one thing they’re looking for — a partner who isn’t looking for a physical relationship.
“2date4love is a dating site that enables people who cannot engage in sexual intercourse to meet and experience love, companionship and intimacy at its deepest level,” the website reads.
The website has attracted more than 1,500 members since its Aug. 1 launch.
Brashier, a hair stylist from California, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” she was 37 years old and single when she was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer. She struggled with dating for years following her recovery, fearful of finding intimacy.
She was inspired to start the website after months of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments destroyed her vaginal tissue, making sex painful.
“I didn’t want to be alone. This was the reason I went online,” she said. “My reason is to help a lot of people like me if I can.”
It is estimated 1-in-3 Americans will have cancer in their lifetime, Dr. Ilana Cass, a gynecologist oncologist told ABC.
Treatment often can kill sex drive and make intercourse impossible, she said.
The website is also for men and women who are simply uninterested in being physical with their partners.
“It’s just the freedom of not having it on my mind when I am talking to a man,” Brashier told ABC. “It’s really hard for someone else to understand how it weighs on my mind.”
