Well, if you are confused, no one could blame you, since it seems there are dating sites for just about every “niche” under the sun. These sites say they specialize in matching individuals that share some overriding common characteristic or interest: Gay (and separately “Lesbian”), Millionaire, “Sugar Daddies” (although maybe that one should go with “Millionaires), Christian (and I’m sure there’s one for “Atheists”), Single Parents, etc. etc. etc.
I think you get the idea —there’s unlimited ways to slice the dating “pie”. Of course you can always go with the big, monster online sites like Match, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish, even Tinder, but they’ve got their own problems, so maybe you’re considering going “niche ” i.e. targeted.
Below I’ll share just a few niche players that seem to be relatively established, just to give you the idea. Then I’ll add a couple newbies that stretch the envelope, so to speak, and prove that there are people trying to connect people with almost any interest.
And then, we’ll give you our take at Asian Western Love on whether you should even wade into the “online dating scene,” using a large or small site. Or maybe consider matchmaking as the better alternative way to find your “Right One.”
Millionaire Match (http://www.millionairematch.com/) — All right! Here’s where you can find those rich partners who will make all your dreams come true…well maybe, if they’re not a sociopath and if they didn’t lie on their financial profile.
Disabled/Handicapped (http://disabledfriendsdate.com/) — This is actually a kind of nice site for those that want a partner that shares a disability with them. Of course, there’s nothing to say that they couldn’t find willing partners on the more general sites, who are happy to overlook whatever disability they have.
OK, those are pretty tame, but now to stretch the envelope here are two sites that, again, prove there’s something for everyone.
Extramarital/Cheaters (https://www.ashleymadison.com/) Have no idea if there really is an “Ashley Madison,” but if you’re planning to cheat on your spouse, this appears to be the place to go. They’ve been around some time, so they are apparently successful and must be a good number of unfaithful husbands and wives out there.
Marijuana Smokers (http://420singles.net/) This is a new site and coincides with the pressure for legalizing Marijuana that’s sweeping across the U.S. Wonder if it’s important to know/like more about your potential partner than they just like to smoke grass and sit around stoned all day? Guess that would cut down on domestic arguments, but two people with the munchies all the time might just blow the grocery budget.
So what do we at Asian Western Love think about the niche AND general online dating sites? Well, surprise, surprise. We think using any of them, or any ONLINE approach is a risky, time-wasting effort. We believe that you stand to gain more, have no risk by using a reputable MATCHMAKER. People-to-people drive the process of finding your life partner, not computer touch screens or keyboards. We can help you.
