If you want to have a spooky kind of date on purpose…
If you like hunting for ghosts or exploring old graveyards, but you’re tired of doing it by yourself, then Spookydate may be the place for you. It’s a dating site for people into everything from Jack the Ripper to zombies. Spookydate’s members’ idea of a romantic evening isn’t dinner and a movie, unless it’s a horror movie. But despite popular perception, these are just normal people with not-so-normal interests, insists Spookydate founder Tony Hart-Wilden.
Spookydate members can browse any of eight different categories: Zombies, Vampires, Horror Movies, The Paranormal, Unexplained Mysteries, UFOS, Monsters, and Urban Exploration in search of their perfect match.
Tony tells me there are other paranormal-themed dating sites out there but they aren’t good, he says. This is actually a neat idea, why NOT attract people to each other with mutual (if a bit fringe) interests. I wonder if maybe he might get some who are rather extreme about their interest in the paranormal. Since it’s just launched, I guess we have to wait and see.
If the business becomes profitable, Tony plans to use profits for cemetery restoration and other local-based projects.
