Sure, Match.com is a popular place to peruse potential soul mates if you want a normie, but what if you want something a little quirkier? These five sites show that when it comes to online dating sites, there truly is something for everyone (yep, even you guy in Thundercats costume).
Love Me love My Pets
Wouldn’t it be nice to find a fellow puggle lover that believes pets feel sad and naked when they’re not in sweaters? Look no further, friend! This site touts itself as the “best place to meet pet lovers like you.” Profile photos typically feature members posing with their furry friends (though someone should tell one particular gentlemen that posing erotically with three basset hounds draped across your shirtless chest can make a girl wonder just how much you love your pets).
Marry Me Already
Run by a husband-and-wife team (everyone say it together now: aww), this online dating site is for those eager to bypass that annoying what’s-your-name-do-you-have-any-priors phase of dating and skip straight to the cake cutting. Although the site features a compatibility questionnaire, you can always nix this part and just peruse photos until you find a spouse based on their winning smile or huge knockers.
I Would Bang You
Create a free profile, then browse photos of members in your area. Then rate them by clicking a button that says “I would bang her,” “I would date her,” or “Eww gross, no way.” If a member you would “bang” clicks the same thing on your profile, you can message them. Others may call it shallow, but you call it a fun “how we met” story for your future grandkids.
“What’s a novel?” you ask as you text your boyfriend a frowny-face emoticon to express your displeasure over his tardiness. For those of you who don’t think Barnes & Noble is a law firm, Alikewise is your online dating site du jour. At this site booklovers can connect based on shared literary passions. But book-loving single gals may want to steer clear of the guy with the intense stare profile photo who just lists Catcher in the Rye fifty times under favorite books.
“Boldly eschewing the shackles of conventional popularity,” this online dating site is geared toward the Comic-Con crowd. Finally you can meet that special someone that will get excited when they find out about your crotchless ewok costume.
