Another funny parody site along the same lines as PoorMatch.com, here’s Mingle2, a free dating site. I think their main goal here was to drive traffic to their main site so this parody isn’t nearly as funny as PoorMatch.com but it’s still amusing.
With the Twilight craze going on right now, I can’t help but feel that Mingle2 chose the incorrect undead beings to use to generate traffic. I decided to check to see if there were any vampire related dating sites…and based on Twilight fans I was afraid of what I would find (see below). I did find LoveBitten.net which appears to be based on HBO’s True Blood…although it appears that it’s also a real dating site. Then I found two more very real vampire dating sites: VampirePersonals and VamPersonals. All of these sites appear to be taking themselves seriously which is fine, I guess. One man’s joke is another man’s…dating site.
The last two vampire dating sites seem to be marketing themselves to both vampire fans and goth people…which I was under the impression were two very different groups of people. I guess not! Either way, it goes to show if you’ve got a niche, there’s probably a dating site for it.
Oh, and here’s one of those Twilight fans if you were wondering what I was talking about…
