So you say e Harmony leaves you feeling a little blasé? Not to worry: An explosion of niche dating sites is making it possible for picky date-seekers to find, well, just about anyone.
There are sites for people who want to cheat on their spouses, meet inmates, date British guys, hook up with fellow cat lovers and find people who share their health problems or tastes in music.
BTW I am never rude to anyone or send stupid crude messages like some idiots do.
Think you're going to go see that thin, blonde, buxom woman you've been chatting with online when you meet her for drinks tonight? After reviewing how many people have had to be turned away from my site, Beautiful People.com, because they had been deceitful in their application, I thought it would be prudent to commission a survey and dig a little deeper in to the most common deceptions.
The options — and the level of specificity — are mind-boggling.
Here are 26 sites to help you find that special, unique someone: Farmers are so down to earth Farmers brings together farmers, ranchers, agriculture students, horse owners, livestock owners and "cowboys, cowgirls, rodeo fans and country wannabes." The site's founder says you don't have to be a farmer, "but you do have to have good old-fashioned down-to-earth values," and the site's motto says it all: "City folks just don't get it!
A new website is out to reveal the ugly truth about dating.
British site The Ugly Bug uk advertises itself under the slogan "dating for the aesthetically challenged," and claims to be the first of its kind: a matchmaking website for "ugly people." "It's a sad fact that up to half of the UK is made up of ugly people yet amazingly nobody has ever thought of providing a dating service for them," Howard James, the site's founder, told London's Sun.
"We're scooping up these people and offering them a glimmer of hope - in many cases their first and only opportunity of meeting a member of the opposite sex." James, reportedly a multimillionaire, has launched a series of "niche dating websites" since the mid-nineties, including sites aimed specifically at people who like dogs and daters over 40.
Think that "affluent man" who you're about to join for an expensive dinner, will be able to pay for both of you? Running an exclusive online dating site myself, I can attest to the constant battle in working to maintain the integrity of online dating communities by weeding out disingenuous profiles -- yes, surprise surprise! The study of 1,000 single men and women -- all of whom belong to various leading mainstream dating communities -- was conducted across the US and the UK by global research agency .
The results uncovered a shameful excess of dishonesty from people purportedly looking to find their one true match.
On both sides of the Atlantic, the older people got, the less likely they were to be untruthful.
Clearly the older generations understand that it's better to be accepted for who you are rather than who you wish you were.
