Niche Dating Services

Today Donna pointed to a biker dating service. I snickered at this, but it makes sense–people seek mates with similar backgrounds and interests.

I got to thinking about how niche a dating site could get, and still be sustainable. Five minutes of searching got me the following:

What else you got? Surely we can find an overweight trans gendered Samoans dating site.

UPDATE: Gary writes with his site, DateAGolfer.com. What a happy foursome on the home page.

UPDATE #2: Jim writes about No Longer Lonely, a website for ‘adults with mental illness’. Also, whether you’re a Clinton or Obama supporter, you can find love on DemocraticSingles.com.

    I don’t think the Ayn Rand thing is a spoof! (I’m tempted)

    From my limited experience Ayn Rand admirers tend to have a bit of a different philosophy, it’d be great to have that as a stepping off point.

    Passionate Ayn Rand fans tend, like her, to have no sense of humor whatsoever.

    Spot on! Lack of sense of humour is one of my weak points.

    I’m not certain if I’d be better served by someone who views the world as earnestly as I do, or by my current BF who insists on teasing me. While this is perhaps food for further thought, it does reawaken my appreciation of him for putting up with me. Thanks!

    Check out http://consumating.com/ which isn’t really a niche dating site (it says it’s for hot geeky girls and indie rock boys, but that could mean anything these days), but does dating a little bit more Web 2.0-like, i.e. it has tags and RSS feeds and you can have a public profile associated with your nickname. Did I mention it has a weblog? http://consumating.typepad.com/

    Of course, the only dating sites that work in getting you dates are (community) sites that aren’t dating sites, that is, sites that facilitate getting you *away* from your computer.

    Sorry for the two posts. My computer cranked out on me after the first post, and I didn’t think it went through :)

    Some great advice here, obviously the targeted niches will convert better then a generic dating site.
    Look forward to seeing more ideas on here.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text within your article appear to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not positive if this really is a format problem or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look fantastic though! Hope you get the concern fixed soon. Kudos
