If my wife checks my search history without knowing I wrote this, she is going to be very upset. These are all real, except one. Try to be the first person in the comments to guess which one.
10. GlutenFreeSingles.com: Fifteen years ago no one on the planet knew what gluten was. I’m tempted to go to one of their live dating events and spike the punch with gluten.
9. ClownDating.com: To which all the ladies reading this reply, “They’re all clowns.”
8. StachePassions.com: A site for men with facial hair and the ladies who love it. At least I hope it’s not a site where men find women with mustaches.
7. MagicMatch.com: A dating site for grown up lovers of the Harry Potter books and movies. It would have to be magic for any of these nerds to find a date any other way.
6. SeaCaptainDate.com: The tag line is: “Find your first mate!” I’m pretty sure it might as well say Find your first date. Ladies if you date a “sea captain” keep in mind that if he decides to kill you he has a whole ocean in which to dispose of your body.
5. ZombiePassions.com: “A 100% free online dating & social networking site for zombies, zombie lovers & people who have been working in a dead-end job for too long.” Look, I like zombies as much as the next guy, but I don’t want my girlfriend to look like one.
4. CanDoBetter.com: This site is both pure genius and pure evil. You submit photos of yourself and your significant other. Users of the site vote. Whoever is deemed to be able to do better than their current lover gets admitted to the site to find someone better. How horrible would it be to go on there and find a picture of your significant other already there?
3. DiaperMates.com: The site where people who like to pretend they’re giant babies go to find other like minded individuals. Don’t click the link. Trust me on this. I’m not kidding.
2. FurryMate.com: If you like to dress up like a cartoon animal and get jiggy with it, this is the site for you. I wonder if fur balls are ever a problem?
1. Amish-Online-Dating.com: Apparently everyone on this site is a fraud. You can’t be Amish and use the internet! If I was going to sign up for a dating site this would be it though.
This post may be humorous for some and helpful for others. Did you guess which was the fake dating site?
really very funny but a little scary too-meaning that these sites actually exist. Yikes.
Apparently there’s somebody for everyone
Clearly. And maybe that’s good.
I cheated and found the fake one. You’re too cute!!
LOL, thanks Yvonne! I won’t tell anyone that you cheated.
Teehee, I found the fake one…and the lovely message there. 😀 It is just amazing (and kind of awesome in a weird way) that some of these sites exist. 🙂
It’s nice to know that there’s someone for everyone.
The only one I clicked on was fake! And I was hoping to meet my next husband…assuming something happens to my current one. I actually find it disturbing that that was the fake site.
I would bet if you looked hard enough online there must be a site like that.
I admit it, I was cheating
I probably deserve a beating
But my first guess wasn’t right
I thought it was the Sea Captain site.
I know. The Sea Captain dating site is oddly specific. That would have been my guess too.
Oh good! So I’m not crazy! Right, everything enough seemed trendy enough to work, but Sea Captain??
The image of you spiking the punch with gluten endears you to me permanently. And I remember when mustaches were just the sexiest thing ever as opposed to those….er….specimens on that website. Tom Selleck, anyone? Anyone? Sigh, I know I’m getting old!
Yes, but you’re old enough that mustaches are back in style! I hope the Mr. has grown one for you!
No. He shaved his Tom Selleck stache ten years ago or more, although he did do the goatee thing for a while.
I think someone has stolen the clown dating website – I so wanted to see that one
You can go check it out. Just post your profile pic on your blog for us to admire.
It’s scary that I couldn’t pick the fake one! Did you find the one that your wife signed up for?
Sadly she signed up for all of them.
I’m too afraid to click, so when will we find out which one is fake?
Hi Jolene, yes, you should be afraid to click most of those links because the weirdest ones are real. The most benign one, MagicMate.com, the dating site for Harry Potter lovers, is the one I made up. I’m sure though that if you looked you could probably find a real dating site based on Harry Potter.
I am at work (supposed lunch break) so I can’t click and try. However, it may make for an interesting post for me to try to register with some of these niche sites. If I wanted to try dating again, that is…
Of course, even with 9 out of 10 of these, I guess it proves there is something for everyone. Perhaps I should start a site for bloggers who are looking or people into bloggers. We’re all obsessed with post counts, replies, stats, etc. Surely that’s a “thing” for someone, right?
I think that’s a great idea. A blog dating site for bloggers. I bet you could make some money doing that!
I am so very, very worried for the world! I’m imagining teaching the progeny of such unions. Feckin’ Nora it doesn’t bear thinking about.And the only one I’d even be tempted to join (just for the wand, you understand) isn’t even real!!! Tragic not magic.
And that clown is…is…well, just as scary as all clowns but in a whole other way.
It’s funny that a couple people have now said that they would want to join that one.
That’s maybe a bit scary too. :/
