There used to be an old telling, “You won’t meet anyone if you don’t go out.” Not true anymore. Online dating permits us to meet MORE people by being a recluse. Not only will you see more people, you can find exactly the person you want, or so we’ve been led to believe. If you’ve always desired an athletic dude, who’s Mormon, likes travel, and lives within 20 miles of you, you can find him!

Now when this person doesn’t turn out to be the love of your life, then something’s obviously wrong with him. You know what you want. You checked all the right boxes. Database queries should be infallible. The fellow was made to order. He just came out bad.

I have seen this behavior more so in women, than in studs. When I get into conversations with women about dating, they always paint a picture of who their ideal mate is. I reminisce being in a car with three women who each went through a laundry list of criteria for their ideal mate. All I could think was “good luck.”

But these criteria can sometimes be very strong. So strong that people simply won’t look at others outside of a specific category, such as religion. And in those cases, there’s no point signing up for a general site like Match.com if all you want to do is meet a Jewish fellow. In that case, join JDate.

Religion isn’t the only “must have” criteria for some people. There are many many more. And for every criteria, strange fascination, or fetish somebody has, there is not only another person out there for you, but there’s an entire market of interest. Enough interest to launch an online dating site. On Saturday night, Valentine’s Day, with my wifey waiting to go out, I scoured the online singles scene and put together a collection of the most unusual and unique online dating sites.

1. Darwin Dating: Online dating ONLY for beautiful people

This is one of those sites that people want to at the same time join, protest, and mock. The site owners maintain a poorly updated blog where they keep track of all their complaints. There’s also a list of their criteria, plus they maintain a list of top ranked beautiful daters.

Two. Till-Death-Do-Us-Part.com: Online dating for terminally ill people

I believe this site is on the up and up, but I don’t think they beta tested it with many or if any members. The site just launched on Valentine’s Day and as of today there’s a whopping 15 masculine members and 11 female members. The service sounds like it serves a needed niche, but maybe we should be blessed that it remains unsuccessful.

Three. Women Behind Bars: Snail mail correspondence with locked up ladies

Very low tech site where you pay a petite fee to get the snail mail address of a woman in prison. If you’re interested in this you should undoubtedly read the FAQ. The site owners don’t know what these women are in for but they do warn you that any correspondence will inevitably result in requests for you to send money.

Four. Trek Passions: Dating for Starlet Trek fans

Ladies, this is what you’ve been looking for. A chance to spend an entire evening discussing who was the best Starlet Trek captain and if the original Starlet Trek “Tribble” gig indeed was the best gig ever. I guess there are a lot of people truly into Starlet Trek. I’m still looking for “Mr. Belvedere Passions.”

Five. Scientific Match: Matching singles through DNA

You think eHarmony’s psychological profiles will indeed find you the flawless match? Not a chance. What you need is actual science. This site matches couples by their DNA and it only costs $995 for a lifetime membership. That sounds like torment. A lifetime of very first dates with people chemically disposed to mate with you.

6. 420 Dating: Dating site for marijuana smokers

Dude. Check this out. You ever go out on a date and think. no, wait. gravely dude. Stop laughing. I’m about to say something indeed profound here. Listen. Wouldn’t it be superb if. I’m serious, stop laughing. Wouldn’t it be awesome if all the women you met smoked pot. Think about it. I’m not being funny, man. Earnestly. Think about it.

7. AgeMatch.com: Online dating for intergenerational dating

Are you an older man looking for a junior chick? Or maybe you’re a youthful woman looking to date someone that looks like her dad. Either way, while everyone snickers (“dirty old man”) or talks behind your back (“she’s only after his money”), you can find that flawless mate that fits all the wrinkles or firmness you desire.

8. Geek Two Geek: Online dating for geeks

If you’re questioning whether geeks make good mates, read this site’s rationale for why geeks make the best catch. My dearest “geek dating” rationale is their lack of practice. According to the site, the socially successful have become too certain to be intimate. Geeks’ lack of past romantic success permits them to treatment paramours with the zest of a neophyte.

9. PositiveSingles.com: Online dating for people with STDs

If you’ve got an STD (sexually transmitted disease), then in the back of your mind you’re always wondering if the person you meet is cool with it, and when would be a good time to bring up “the issue.” Hopefully you do it before you actually have hook-up. On this site there’s no worrying because you’ll know before your very first date. Got herpes? Everyone on this site has an STD. Now you have something to talk about on your very first date. “When did you have your very first break out?”
