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.
