SPRINGWISE - Oct 13 - Having been diagnosed with cervical cancer 12 years ago Laura Brashier went on to found 2date4love, a dating service for singles who can’t have sex.
Q: Where did the idea for 2date4love come from?
A: I was discouraged from dating at all because I felt that most men wouldn’t sign up for a long term relationship that involved intimacy without sexual intercourse. I then started to think that there must be others out there who are in the same situation as me and 2date4love.com was born.
Q: What motivates you to keep going?
A: From something so life threatening and physically devastating, came something that’s good for the world. 2date4love.com is such a moving and emotional experience to read some of the letters and notes that the members have written to me, thanking me for being so brave and courageous.
Q: If you were to start again, what would you do differently?
A: I’d probably start with a basic template for the back end of the website.
A: I would be working towards my degree in Horticulture.
A: Not many people know that there are many diabetics who have a high incidence of sexual dysfunction. Mostly men, but a lot of women with diabetes are candidates for 2date4love.com.
