You're wondering how I found this site, right? Um... research?
Actually, someone I know wrote a blog about unusual dating websites (he's a young man of prime dating age who apparently has a lot of time on his hands).
He also found "Date Me, Date My Pet",which seeks to bring pet lovers together, though a dating advisor warns, "Does your date get along great with animals, but treats YOU like a worn-out dog toy?"
Farmers Only boasts 100 marriages among like-minded farm folks, because "city folks just don't get it".
Like "Twilight" and "True Blood"? "This site is your sanctuary," proclaims the home page for Vampire Personals, "available to all members of the Vampire Community. If you are unsure if you fit into this category, this place is probably not for you."
The list is seemingly endless: Woman Behind Bars, and STD Friends. There's "Date a Little",which is for dating little people, Tall Friends, for dating tall people, and Obese Dating.
My favorite: Poker Faces,for poker players with lying faces who want to meet other people with lying faces. I call that regular dating.
Believe me, I am not passing judgment. We all have our crosses to bear, or interests others don't understand. Why shouldn't we seek a little eharmony (as long as it's legal and among consenting adults)?
For example, mental illness is no joke. Now, those who suffer can find love at No Longer Lonely. "We are a welcoming community that understands the trials and pitfalls of managing a mental illness," the site says. "Find friends or seek romantic relationships knowing that everyone on this site has some form of mental illness."
There's someone for everyone out there. At least online.
