I still think a MetaFilter dating service would be aces.

So when you meet the person who hates the same things you do, you can fall in love, get married, have kids and teach your kids to also hate those same things, and so on and so forth.

My main complaint with the site (and stance notes in the Projects post that the site is beta, so, fair cop): no obvious way to get a list of things other people dislike.

Okay, so, suppose the dates are successful at first. Would relationship trouble be posted in MetaTalk?

"No men or women admit to have a problem with sex"

Where's the honesty here, eh?

I searched for people who also didn't like "your mom" or "yer momma" to no avail.

There's a very romantic Mr. T Experience song about this very subject...

or...

"No men or women admit to have a problem with George Bush "

or
"No men or women admit to have a problem with murder"

or

"No men or women admit to have a problem with microsoft"

has anyone found something that someone DID have a "problem" with???

I used those two keywords myself and came up with nothing. Their sample is obviously too small.

Metafilter has a dating service, they're called meetups.

Yah, but only desperate men and non-available women show up to them. (for the heterosexual crowd that is)

Cute idea. It needs a larger pool of people though. Bush, Rush, & Pop Music didn't turn up anything.

"Chuck Norris jokes" is the default entry?? Chuck Norris is so awesome that NOBODY hates his jokes!

DU: I got quagmire as the default. I reloaded and now it's changed to Professor Umbridge. It's random, I believe.

The site's obviously not functioning properly b/c I typed in New Jersey and received no matches.

Personally, I love it here at the Garden State, but ask your typical Manhattanite to cross the Hudson and they act like it's some great trans-atlantic voyage on a paddle boat.

I did an exclusionary search on " Anal Sex"

Nobody reported disliking Anal Sex.




WOOOOO HOOOOO!

No men or women admit to have a problem with football

No men or women admit to have a problem with html escaping
(although their page does -- try a slash!)

No men or women admit to have a problem with censorship of 9-11 conspiracy theories.

Damn. Not even msquare's going to find love on this place, even assuming he sits through the two hours it takes to find a single other human being on it.

Oh, and: No men or women admit to have a problem with bad grammar.
Good thing, too.

Found three people who dislike rap. And one guy who doesn't care for protectionist economic policies.

This site has potential, once it hits a critical mass. Right now it's like a ghost town.

But no one seems to mind right now.

No men or women admit to have a problem with indie kids (add to my MeNeithers).

People don't have a problem with Theft, but watch out for those Jews.

yes I'm aware that that profile was probably a joke

I pretended to like jews for 8 years.

Hey guys,

You could leave feedback here:

http://projects.metafilter.com/1034/WeNeither

cortex notes that there's no easy way to see what other people aren't interested in, and it's true, you needed an account to see the link. I added makeshift links to the search pages when there are no results, reproduced here:

http://www.weneither.com/home/popular_meneithers
http://www.weneither.com/home/meneither_activity

The site opened for beta yesterday. Few users means few MeNeithers. Join and fill it out a bit.

Any suggestions are being noted, but comments like "Good idea, bad implementation..." aren't helpful (though I'm glad you like the idea).

This reminds me of a bumpersticker I saw today:

"Why are all the good men gay, married, or broke?"

UbuRoivas: I hate internet dating sites.

That's why I made one.

So hold on... wouldn't the way to show up on the most matches be to dislike everything?

*cha-ching* Score one for negativity, baby.
posted by dreamsign at 8:45 AM on July 19, 2007


I hate plenty of things, but I've already got a girlfriend. (I also think that though there was a study that showed people were more likely to make friends based on mutual dislikes, that one of the things that I really liked about my girlfriend was that she was more than the usual bundle of hipster antipathies— we all hate emo, thanks. I don't need a lecture on it, especially when you just like shitty indie music. I find by keeping my likes fairly granular, I do better...)
