Trying to date as a single parent comes with many obstacles. Time, willingness, and the ability to make dating a bigger priority than finally mastering a Mickey Mouse pancake.
I have struggled over the past few years dating now that I am a mom. I never have the time, or when I do have the time I sure don’t have the energy. The kid-free guys on the other end of my dates never understand or can relate to these struggles.
Possessing the ability to empathize with parenting challenges is key for a long-lasting relationship, even more so if you are a parent with a special needs child. This is where Special Hearts comes in, the new dating platform for special needs parents to be able to connect with others on a similar journey.
About Special Hearts
The inspiration for Special hearts comes from a mother with a 4-year-old son that has developmental delays and seizures. She thought if she had to re-enter the dating scene, she would want to date someone who understands’s her challenges. Unable to find a dating website specifically for parents with special needs kids, she made her vision come to life and created Special Hearts.
How it works
The Special Hearts website and app are structured very straight forward and easy to navigate. It just takes a few minutes to fill out a quick survey, create a profile, upload some pictures, and pick your membership before you are on your way to finding love.
At special-hearts.com you will find 2 different memberships, a basic and VIP. The basic membership is free and allows you to create a profile, search users, view photos, and add friends. But if you are more serious about meeting someone, you will want to get the VIP membership. For as low as $10 for 3 months, you will be able to access everything the platform has to offer. Messaging, videos instant messager calling, view profiles, and making comments are just some of the perks.
Since the creators know first hand how expensive things can get when you have a child with certain disabilities, they decided to include a donation program within the membership fee. A portion of the proceeds from your membership fee goes to the special needs organizations of your choice. You can decide how much you want to donate, how often and where it goes.
To Sum up:
- Special Hearts is an easy way to meet like-minded individuals that are on the same journey.
- They conveniently have both a website and an app to access their platform.
- Very simple to use and navigate.
- Their membership cost is crazy low at only $10 for 3 months!!
- A portion of your fee gets donated to charity.
Special Hearts is a unique and valuable way for single parents that have children with disabilities to connect with like-minded individuals. Coming from someone who knows the difficulties trying to date as a single mother, I see this website beneficial to really help ease what can be known as a very frustrating dating process. Special Hearts helps take away the fear and reservation that comes along with dating and gives people a real chance to find the perfect partner in this journey we call life.

I haven’t heard about Special Hearts before. Thanks for the heads up and it’s wonderful to be able to help others.
Love this because special needs parents want someone to share their struggles with too and give of themselves to someone who can love them and their child also.
Just looking for male friend (or female) to share everyday stuff in having a daughter/son with profound disabilities.
Does anyone know if this platform still exist? The links only leads to a picture of a heart, and I cannot find the app in the App Store.
