Apparently There’s A Dating Site for Everyone…Even These People

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

This is the best thing ever. Just let it sink in for a sec.

This question was posed to me recently: How many dating sites are there out in the interwebs? Answer: WAY TOO MANY! Do any of them actually help you find love? How do you even know which to use? Also, are you willing to pay to find love? Most of these sites have free versions. They entice you with possible matches but to communicate or get more accurate results you must fork over the $$$. Love isn’t cheap folks. Love is a battlefield! You need all the help you can get to win the war on those damn wedding invitations that ask for your plus one. (Wedding Tip: Always get the prime rib over the chicken.)

I’ll eat his food.

Some sites are more serious than others. It all depends on what you’re looking for.  Do you want to walk down the aisle? Breed your own minions to rule over your personal empire once you die?  Or do you just want to get laid?  With dating sites popping up all over the place it’s hard to pick which one will give the best results. You can either cast a wide net with the most popular sites like or seek out a certain type of person on specialty dating sites like SingleParentMeet. I just read an article on CNN Living about a new dating app called Siren that gives women all the power! Women can monitor the access men have to their profile. It removes the creep factor found on other sites. Though there’s still a spontaneous element to the app. Women can send out a “Siren Call” to meet men in present time. Its being launched this week in Seattle only. Here are some of the most used dating sites/apps. Pick your poison, folks!
