With the myriad dating sites out there, I feel like I shouldn't be surprised by the any aimed at a specific group of people. But for some reason, I was quite surprised by coming across Green Singles. It's been around since 1985! (Aren't I behind on the band wagon!) I stumbled upon it through EcoSalon while looking for some cool 'green' images for my blog header. It does make perfect sense that dating sites for like-minded individuals can be found for almost any interest - and since being 'green' is more of a lifestyle than a hobby is quite an important aspect to cover when starting any relationship. (If your significant other would choose the easy solution, doesn't like paying more than what he/she pays at Wal-Mart, and eats red meat as if it were the last cow on earth, you might run into problems).
So kiddos, if you're looking for someone who is a more conscious resident of this planet, Green Singles might be the place to look!
Here are some other links that EcoSalon suggests:
"...recently there has been an explosion of green dating sites in cyberspace, all aimed at helping environmentalists and vegetarians find like-minded partners. But even within the green dating niche, there are sub niches. Green Passions seems to attract recyclers, DateForTrees embraces treehuggers, DemocraticSingles is for the left leaning politicos, and for those short on time, there is always GreenSpeedDating. Other possibilities include Earth Wise Singles and Ethical Singles. And if you’re not quite ready for internet dating, not to worry. Try attending a local Green Drinks night instead. It’s a great way to broaden your social circle, make new friends, and – who knows? – maybe meet your sustainable soul mate."
See, these shouldn't really have surprised me. This didn't surprise me, which makes it all the more disconcerting about what I have come to expect from the world. Love long and prosper, kiddos!
