“There’s someone for everyone.” Turns out a lot of people don’t agree with this phrase. But it’s very likely they don’t because they haven’t met their someone. If you’re doubtful this is true a quick Google search of dating websites will show you that indeed there just might be. And if not, at the very least, I think it’s safe to say that there is in fact a dating website for everyone. Almost.
Niche dating sites are immensely common. Whether you are seeking an inmate, someone with a mullet or simply someone who shares the same religious beliefs as you do, there’s a website for that. I browsed the internet and identified 18 of the most unique ones. Even so this is only a handful of what’s out there. If you’re a crazy cat lady, rest assure there’s someone out there for you too? Yes, your purrfect match awaits. Take a look at 18 of the most unusual and unique niche dating sites and if you know of some more be sure to share them in the comments!
