Niche Dating Websites
Online dating has come a long way in the last 10 years. Just a decade ago, there were only a few dating websites, and they were all pretty standard. Today, however, some of the most successful dating websites are niche sites; meaning they cater to daters with specific preferences.
Some are pretty benign. For example, there are now lots of dating websites for single parents. It makes perfect sense that single parents would want to take a lot of the guesswork out of finding a match. They don’t have a lot of free time, and they need to find someone who’s cool with kids.
There are also dating websites designed for people who are of a particular faith, ethnicity, or sexual preference. There are even dating websites for people who prefer their mates to be large, tall or even short. And, there are sites designed for people who are already in a committed relationship, but looking for love “on the side”.
And, of course, there are plenty of dating websites that are designed to help people find a match that will be sexually compatible, such as sites that appeal to people with a particular sexual fetish.
And, then there are the ones that are not exactly what you’d call “mainstream” niche dating site. I’m talking about those sites that are designed to help people meet someone in prison for dating and those that are designed for people with sexually transmitted diseases to meet each other.
Niche dating websites are no different than any other niche product on the market. They fill the desires of a very specific type of dater. Just further proving the theory that “there’s somebody for everybody”.
