Before she was diagnosed with coeliac disease, Pia Strobel never thought she'd be so scared of breadcrumbs on the counter, so afraid of putting a knife down in the kitchen, or so thrilled to fall in love with someone who felt exactly the same way. Ms Strobel, 48, was searching for gluten-free restaurants online when she stumbled across the niche dating website that changed her life. It was on GlutenFreeSingles. While Ashley Madison, the niche dating site catering to the seven-year-itch, may have attracted all the recent headlines, there's a growing of more respectable matchmakers, focused on meeting very specific needs from dietary requirements to a weakness for a British accent.
Bristlr, an online dating site for beard enthusiasts, womenbehindbars. While the pool of potential clients is much narrower than the more general sites, often people with such specific requirements are willing to pay more for membership and sacrifice the quantity of potential matches for the chance of finding someone more compatible. For Ms Strobel, a hairdresser, using a specialist site was a huge success.
Within two years, she had moved from Connecticut to Montana to live with Mr Graff, 46, a land surveyor. The blissful couple say they can't imagine having the kind of relationship they share, had one of them not been gluten-free. That would have been a worry rather than a hobby if we weren't on the same diet. You worry that you're coming off as too high maintenance and wonder, are they even going to ask for a second date? When a mainstream site can't deliver the best qualified matches, a specialist site is the answer, says Trish McDermott, a private dating coach who was on the Match.
It's not about competing with the big guys and should go beyond a matching algorithm. It's about people, experience and connection," says Ms McDermott. Frank Mastronuzzi co-founded OneGoodCrush in July this year out of frustration that larger sites were not catering to the needs of the LGBTQ community, that is those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, a category he describes as people who do not identify themselves along the lines of traditional gender asment and sexuality.
As the only online dating app for singles of all genders and sexual orientations who are seeking long-term relationships, member profiles include questions such as HIV status and how "out" they are. Members are validated as real people by ing in through Facebook and Instagram; an incognito feature allows profiles to be visible only to those they choose to communicate with. Mr Mastronuzzi, 45, says the app dispels the myth that the gay community is only about one night stands.
We are who we are. We love who we love. Another niche dating site is DateBritishGuys. The site currently has 25, members, including 6, men and 19, women.
Controls are tight - men who can't prove their British identity through government-issued documentation, or fail to appropriate photos with the dates they were taken, are rejected. The couple met in London in when Rebecca, now a personal chef, was studying abroad as part of her undergraduate programme, and married in December Rebecca's friends kept asking how they could meet "more of those British guys" and "we realised there's a business opportunity here," says Ben, whose day job is as a psychology professor.
The company has two other employees and is close to hitting the six figure mark for annual revenues. Free membership for men was introduced only at the start of this year, something Ben believes may have stunted their growth so far.
