Joe Bragg Offers Stigma-free Dating for People With Mental Disabilities


San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/04/2012 -- The number of people who use Internet dating sites to find that special someone has increased dramatically over the last couple of years. Millions of people around the world use dating sites on a regular basis and they are no longer thought of as an unusual way to find a partner.

The online dating business has evolved and now there are an increasing number of niche dating sites that target specific groups of society. People suffering from mental illness or disabilities often feel isolated from the rest of society and suffer a poor quality of life. They are reluctant to join mainstream dating sites because of the stigma attached to their condition.

Although the website has only been operating for a couple of years, some of its members have already found their soul mate.

There are a great number of sites catering for anxiety, bipolar and disability dating, but do they really care about their members? Mental Illness Dating is different. We have a family atmosphere and will expand as time moves on but will always remain a tight family.”

“The goal is plain and simple, to find love without having to be judged or stigmatized, which in the 21st century even with our “modern” thinking still is a pervasive problem”, explains a spekesperson.
