5 Niche Online Dating Sites You Didn’t Know About

by Online Dating on February 27, 2012

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, now it’s time to look forward, to shed past heartache and focus on finding someone special this year. You’ve tried online dating, but perhaps the sites you’re using are too general, and aren’t helping you meet the right people. Check out these specialty dating sites that could bring you closer to finding your perfect match.

For The Animal Lovers

No, not those who love like animals, that’s probably some other site. Datemypet.com is for those who absolutely love pets! Taken from the site, “14% of dog owners admitted they might continue dating someone they didn’t like all that much, just to spend time with that person’s dog.” I believe it. Use the site to find a date, a buddy for your pet, or just a friend to trade pet stories with.

For The Trekkies

In Pon Farr? Well, we may have found the site for you. Trek Passions isn’t only for fans of Star Trek, as the name would indicate — fans of Star Wars and other sci-fi are welcome. Look for someone to share your sci-fi passions with, or just a fun companion to bring along to those conventions.

For The Punks

If eHarmony is just not punk enough for you, give Punk Match a shot. Punk Match focuses on the punk rock lifestyle and offers verified profiles for those concerned about scammers. Free to join, why not meet new friends that fit your rockin’ lifestyle.

For The Farmers

For when only a farmer can plow you right. All jokes aside, FarmersOnly is a site where you can find a down-to-earth person who prefers wide-open blue skies, raising animals and living off of the earth. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of sites like eHarmony or Match, FarmersOnly may be exactly what you’re looking for.

For Those With STDs

If you have an STD, it can be a challenge opening up about it to your new someone, but at PositiveSingles you’re part of a community. From the site: “The best, largest, completely anonymous and most trusted online dating site for people with Herpes, HPV, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and other STDs in the world.” Over 70 million people are living with STDs in the U.S. alone, as well as an estimated 400 million people worldwide, but it can still make you feel alone. So, if you’re living with an STD and looking for a friend or something more, head over to PositiveSingles.
