What are some of the most unique dating sites you've come across?

Asked by SmithPow123 (11points) September 30th, 2008

I’m working on a research project for an advanced sociology class about the effect of the internet on dating and relationships. I’ve seen some of the most random dating sites – anything from convict dating to herpes dating sites to even wealthy men looking for young, attractive women (a.k.a. golddigger sites). Do you know of any interesting ones?

Does it have to be a real site?

You might check this one

I think it’s the funniest couples site on the net.

Don’t forget about Craig’s List, The Onion personals, etc.

Well, being from midwest, more specifically, Ohio, there is a sight that advertises for, and i make no joke, farmers, and farmers only. i do believe their slogan is something along the lines of,

“Cause big-city folk just don’t get it”

:D

Unfortunately I cannot tell you the exact site, but a close friend met her current beau on a “Catholics only” website. It was nice for both of them to meet there as it (being a practicing Catholic) is something that is extremely important to both of them in a mate.
They have been dating for a long time and intend to marry.

Along the same lines as snoopy’s, there is jdate.com, but it’s for Jews, not Catholics.

And, not to be left out, of course, websites for Muslims.

nocheatersdate.com is run by the show “Cheaters.”

Tom Lykis (sp?) once reported that regular Internet dating sites have a higher correlation with casual sex than other forms of dating.

Here’s a website for people with so-called “special conditions.” I searched under bipolar.

I don’t see any websites where blind people can search for date possibilities.

How sad…

@deaddolly, there doesn’t appear to be a dating option for chubbychasers.com. Also, it’s usually a good idea to add NSFW (not safe for work) if you’re directing folks to a link with porn or other material that could get someone in trouble with their IT dept. Just FYI and thanks.

chubbychasers is not a porn site. lol it’s by tangowire. My friend (male) is on that site and there’s nothing porn about it.
It’s chubbychase.net I just called him to find out.

Sorry. lmfao.

This one cracks me up because it’s not really a dating site. But you pay for a profile and then print out cards with you member number and hand them out to people.

I never figured out why you would be able to walk up to someone and hand them a card, but then have to wait and see if they looked you up and contacted you based on your profile.

For athletic types; my daughter met someone nice:http://www.fitness-singles.com/
Smart people sites; http://www.rightstuffdating.com/

And for the whole shebang of niche dating; http://www.onlinedatingmagazine.com/nicheonlinedatingservices.html

(Psst. SmithPow. Since your soc. class is advanced, be warned that you shouldn’t qualify “unique.”

Ive seen http://www.toyboyconnection.com dating site recently and they seem to be pretty interesting – especially with all the news about women like demi moore dating younger men younger men in the press. I think it can be a good thing so long as they don’t expect to find ‘the one’ straight away. There are lots of nice guys out there are the moment and I have heard quite a few success stories so if your the right women and you find the right man then toy boys can be a good way to date.
