It's no secret a lot of people use online dating service to try to find love. And the rest of us have made a profile at one time or another just out of "curiosity." But it can be tough to make a profile that will attract attention, especially if you have, say, genital herpes. People tend to skip the herpes profiles...

But now, a matchmaking service in Winnipeg has created a section for people with genital herpes. So, if you have herpes or don't, but are open to dating someone with herpes. There's a matchmaking site for you. By the way, the site does not accept smokers. Apparently, it's too hard to find a match for them.
