Looking for Some Strange Love?
It’s summertime and love is in the air. While I’m lucky enough to have an amazing long term boyfriend, most girls our age are still playing the dating game. Online dating sites like EHarmony.com and Match.com have been everywhere lately- from billboards to TV’s to your sister’s computer screen. But what happens when you don’t fit the traditional mold and would like to look for someone… a bit more unusual? Maybe you have something specific that defines your personality or a certain style of living that cannot be compromised in a romantic relationship.
Hoards of specialized dating websites have begun to crop up around the web, resulting in matchmaking opportunities for weirdos everywhere. Radar Magazine’s list of some of the most obscure dating sites inspired me to search for a few strange dating sites of my own. I figured there must be something stranger than Datemypet.com…and boy was I right.
Redneckandsingle.com- The name of the site is pretty self-explanatory. If you enjoy beer, trucks, fishing, and rodeos this is probably the place for you.
Laffpersonals.com- Been around the block one too many times? This site is for singles openly infected with herpes, HPV, or your choice of a variety of other nasty STD’s. The site argues that 1 in 4 people have an STD anyway, so it’s safer to date someone who’s up front about it…and maybe they have a point.
Nerdpassions.com- Got beat up a lot in high school? Here’s your opportunity to swap stories about being shoved into lockers with a kindred spirit. Hook up with your fellow pocket-protector carrying, technology obsessed, thick glasses wearing nerds.
Gothicmatch.com- Goths need love too. Fair enough. However, this site also claims to cater to vampire singles. Creepy enough for you?
420dating.com- A lonely pothead’s dream. Indulge in your favorite illegal activity with someone you love. I just hope the cops don’t find your profile…
