Online Dating NOT Working? Try a Niche Dating Site! (with Video)

niche-dating-online-datingOK so you’ve tried all the conventional dating sites, even tried Tinder, and nothing! No luck at all finding someone you really feel a compatible connection with. Perhaps you have a quirk, an interest or a passion for something or you have a medical condition that freaks some people out. There are so many reasons why your typical dating site doesn’t work for you, but there ARE other options you can try. If Online Dating isn’t working for you, try a Niche Dating Site!

Online Dating NOT Working? Try a Niche Dating Site! 

Niche Dating Sites fall into several categories, religious, ethnic, cultural, health related, and what I like to call “off the beaten path”. For example if you are from a certain culture or ethnic background and really prefer that sort of person then you can search for dating sites of that culture. I did that once, as most of you know, I’m of Lebanese descent and thought it would be fun to try Arab Dating sites … well as many might imagine it was a hilarious disaster. If you want to read about my “Magic Carpet Ride” you can click here. I’ve also tried some others, like Sugar Daddy sites, as well as a Redhead Dating one, but that was all about fetishes for red haired women (duh!).

Here are some examples of what you can find …

Ethnic Dating Sites for …

  • Arabs, Latin Americans, Asians, as well as many others

Religious Dating Sites for …

  • Christians, Jewish, Muslims

“Off the Beaten Path” Dating Sites for …

  • Vegetarians, Gluten Free Singles, Big & Beautiful, Geeks, Sugar Daddies, Farmers, Pot Smokers, STD Positive people, Beautiful People and Ugly People … you name it there’s a site for it!

There really IS something out there for everyone … if there’s something you’re hankering for go ahead and give a niche dating site a try … you never know what you’ll find!!

I was recently on CTV Ottawa Morning live and we had a lot of fun chatting about some off the beaten path Niche Dating Sites …. check it out by clicking here or on the picture below.

  1. There’s a beautiful people and ugly people dating website? A site where ugly people are looking for beautiful people? I don’t understand. Also seems a bit shallow….

      • Wow, so I looked at the beautiful people’s site. And…wow. Then I read an article about they booted over 3K people in one night, for no longer being “beautiful”. Definitely, not a site for long term relationships. And the ugly people’s site, just seems like a place for really insecure people….

        • I tried to lurk on the beautiful people site but they required a photo. While both seem weird I actually get the point. I used to be pretty, still am I suppose, and to some extent I want a decent looking guy. Not talking male model but not a slob. Most of the guys who contacted me were extremely gross. However I doubt these were the guys on the ugly site, those are probably normal looking men. The truly unattractive don’t realize they are.

          • These guys weren’t just unattractive but nasty. I’m not talking average looking guys but it is depressing to have Frankenstein’s uglier, fatter brother contact you and discuss all the fat women.

          • They were unattractive inside and out. I’m not talking a man who wouldn’t be considered attractive but is a nice guy. I’m talking guys who would say things like “no fatties” but were themselves fat.

  2. As a joke a friend put me on the Farmers site. There are guys neat me but all are older. I even found a site for clowns and a couple for furries. I used a religious one but no luck.

  3. I understand the need to find those like yourself sometimes, but I think my niche is just a little too limited. is there a dating site for people who actually want to interact? I am on several different sites and I see the same thing, women with profiles that say next to nothing about themselves or what kind of person they are looking for. Then I run into the problem of what to say when I find someone that I like and that might like me, women have SO many choices in the online dating world that If my opening line is not amazing i get passed over. Then the ultimate insult is if I find someone willing to engage me in conversation, she has nothing to say and it feels like I’m interviewing her.
    And don’t get me started on Tinder, people made it sound like it’s an open meat market where anyone can get “luck”, but it’s as bad as the others.

    • Actually, not all women have choices. Yes I got a lot but most were old enough to be my dad, guys with kids, and guys looking for sex. If I turned down a childless man around my age it’s because he got freaky. So many guys claim they fail because of women having choices and then I see who they are contacting. I had a guy friend complain about this but he was 50, lived at home, unemployed, obese, smelly and nasty, yet wanted someone in her 20’s, in shape and employed. He died single.

      • Hi Dawn, so help me help myself. How do I get my proverbial foot in the door? I’m 43, not bad looking, I have a good job, I have two kids and I bath regularly. I have a BS in communications and am taking online classes for IT. I have my own place and I can cook, I can hold a conversation about just about anything. My only flaw in that I don’t have a car right now. So what am I doing wrong?

        • Leon, the two issues could be the kids and the car issue. Of course if you live in an area where cars aren’t needed then it shouldn’t matter. Now onto the kid issue, are you seeking moms or childless? This is where many single dads mess up and avoid single moms. It’s a bit different if the mom isn’t in the picture. If you are going after single moms around your age then something else is wrong.

          • Well I live in Philadelphia with a massive transportation system so traveling isn’t an issue. And it doesn’t matter if she has kids or not, because I’m not trying to start a family or blend into one, which i think is the real issue. Women want to see a relationship going somewhere and my profiles clearly state that i don’t wanna get married and I’m done having kids so that kinda makes me a bad risk. I mean who wants to just date forever

          • Actually it does matter if she has kids or not. Just because she doesn’t have kids doesn’t mean she wants any, and it certainly doesn’t mean she wants someone else’s kids. I don’t have kids but my pet peeve was being approached by dads though my profile stated no dads.

          • I think my problem is I attract women who see me as relationship material, but when they see I’m not trying to get married again, they look elsewhere.
            I just want someone that wants to go out and have some drinks and dancing. And knows how to talk to a man, meaning be interested in me.

          • Well I wouldn’t be interested in a man who wasn’t interested in marriage and many women I know aren’t. However others are and it seems quite a few are single moms.

          • So it sounds like there isn’t anything wrong with me or my approach, just that there is no real future in being with me. So I’ll just keep trying and hopefully someone will be interested in being with just me. Thanks for your insight. Much appreciated.

          • I’m sure there are women looking for what you are but not that many. Someone who has already done the marriage/kids thing would be your best bet.

    • It is difficult for both men and women to find love, and sometimes the process can be very frustrating to say the least, but you have to ask yourself if you keep doing the same things over and over and it’s not working, perhaps there’s something there. Go back and think about each situation and try and find the common problem, that will help you work towards a solution. It starts with your dating profile and your initial communications and then go from there.

      • You see I’m not “looking” for love I just want someone that likes and enjoys my company right now and if it develops into something deep? Great if not that’s fine too.
