16 Online Dating Sites That Are Weirdly Specialized, Proving There Really Is Someone Out There For Everyone
If you're looking for love over the Internet, you're definitely in luck. Online dating sites no longer limit you to creating a profile on Match.com and sending winks to strangers via one sexy platform. Whomever you are, and whatever you're into, there is a dating site to match your tastes. Think you have compatibility preferences that are too far out there? There is no such thing. You will find love in a hopeless place (the Internet) no matter what you're looking for. When I was Googling "dating sites for..." the top search suggestion was "...for murderers," which left me feeling equally terrified and hopeful. See? Anyone and everyone can find love.
And as we're all painfully aware, Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. If you're in the market for a warm body to spend this overly hyped holiday with, you can just set up a kick-ass profile on any of the following dating sites and begin your quest for the perfect mate. Start Internet-flirting with some potential hunnies, and you'll be sitting pretty with dozens of roses and buckets of candy hearts to surround you on the nationally recognized day of love. Or, if you hate Valentine's Day (which most of us do), you can find someone to boycott the day with, which is just as fun.
Happy romance hunting!
