Dec 2, 9: Reddit itself is a treasure trove of redditor-created dating sites full disclosure: When users register with the site, they watch a series of funny Internet videos, like an episode of My Drunk Kitchen , a parody review of a Toyota Corolla, or a bad lip read of Twilight.
The site then matches the users with dates based on where they place the rating slider between a happy and sad face. Seriously, My Drunk Kitchen is a work of art, and not only would I not date you for thinking otherwise, I would challenge you to a duel in the name of Hannah Hart's honor. Another even more simplistic site, 4. Users must validate with a reddit login, provide an e-mail address, and a list of your five favorite subreddits.
Other redditors are just looking to improve upon the regular dating site formula. This theoretically prevents daters from pre-judging each other before speaking.
New-school dating is old-school again Real, established dating sites have a few years of history now. They have a number of success stories and positive statistics to back them up, even if those data points are more marketing ploy than science.
The smaller niche dating sites, though, are ironically quaint. You say hello, make small talk, and eventually discover some common ground. You have been to and enjoy the same disco; both of your mothers were suffragettes; you went to the same 4 Non-Blondes concert; etc.
Having made that connection in the seething vortex of social interaction, you ask to see each other again. It was once that simple! And, we hate to say it, but the sites are possibly unsafe and possibly ineffective. Our parents had Studio 54, swinging parties, and cocaine. We have the Internet, cat videos, and reddit.
