Friendfinder does the same thing, although I think they're a bit bigger. The midget one was kinda funny though.

Yes, well, I don't know about those kinds of people. What if, despite being a democrat and a Californian, a guy was unlike me in some way?

I'm holding out for SelfPeopleMeet.

heh. republican and democrat links are identical apart from the colour. obviously we can find common ground in our desperateness.

I love the repeated use of the same tired stock photo images; the examples on DemocraticPeopleMeet & RepublicanPeopleMeet are the exact same people - and they say our country is a nation divided!

All of these lame stock shots have at least 2 figures in them, except for the shots in Little People Meet, which just have single person portraits. What kind of message is that sending the desperate midgets?

If it's the first BB of BBW, it stands for Big Beautiful Women. I've found from bitter experience that women touted as BBW often have misunderstood (or taken liberties) with the second B.

wumpus, "bb" stands for "big beautiful"...

posted by wendell at 12:34 AM on August 20, 2006


The other thing that makes me chuckle about this whole cheap repurposing is which sites they've decided NOT to pursue. I mean, Asian People meet covers off on ALL non-Chinese Asian online dating for them, no JapanesePeopleMeet, no KoreanPeopleMeet, etc.

Better still, the selection criteria in the dating forms ("i'm an X looking for Y") is pretty much the same in all of them, which is just lazy. I mean, sure, the midget one has a lower range on the height section of your Personal Info Profile, but otherwise, it's excellent use of a central db with a minimum number of fields.

But do you have to be part of the group you are meeting? If not, it could be a very effective way to bring some variety into one's sex life. Also: what if I'm looking for a senior black homosexual?

One of the nicest people I've ever met was Mike the Midget. Mike the Midget over the past decade Mike has been the drummer for an untold number of bands in Chicago. The first thing I noticed about Mike was that he was a much better drummer than he had to be, first because of the intrinsic novelty of watching a little person playing a child's drumset and second because he was playing in shitty punk bands that didn't really require decent drumming.

On my 21st birthday, one of his bands was playing at the Mutiny and over the course of the longest string change I've ever witnessed, he told the following story.

Mike: So I've been spending a lot of time online lately. I found this midget dating site because, iunno, midget bitches are lonely and I'm thinking of starting a ranch. It'll be somewhere out on the Illinois/Indiana border where I can do whatever I want and there'll be, like, a stable of midget bitches. I've already started to talk to some of em, there's this one girl and she has some big ass titties...

Guitarist: Dude she's forty-five

Mike: That's okay, she got her own car...

Nerd meet? How about Geek to geek, or sweetongeeks.com ,nerdpassions.com, intellectualpassions.com

(warning: I haven't hung out on these above, and don't know which are worthwhile (if any (but my increasing use of multiple nested parentheses indicates that it may be time to do so (if it's not already too late!))) :)

This isn't anything new. Seen the stupid signs on the side of the road that say "Single? $CITYsingles.org" - some dating site(s) have registered similar domains for nearly every city name in the US. They all lead to the same damn sites.

The online dating market is saturated. This is just another attempt for it to try to grab new users.
posted by drstein at 11:27 AM on August 21, 2006


And it's not even the first one. See also the Passions Network, which has sites for large people, shy people, smokers, activists, Libertarians...I give up linking, but there's also Passions Network sites for deaf people, Green Party members, the celibate, vegetarians, gay people, tattoo lovers, teachers, geeks, on and on...

The problem with the Passions Network is that if you join one site, you've joined them all, and you can get messages from all of them. So the atheists can message the Latter-day Saints, etc.
