Smartphones have radically changed the way that we conduct so much of our lives. The tiny computers connect us to the great wide world around us in a way that we have never been connected before. Naturally, human beings have used this as a way to find love (or something similar). While apps like Tinder and sites like Match and OKCupid have paired millions of bright-eyed lovers, some people need something a little more specific. Here are some of the more unconventional dating apps that appease the desires of the more unique amongst us…
Sometimes, there is a notable difference in personality between people in the country and people in the city, and city folks just don’t get it! At least that’s the philosophy behind the website and app ‘Farmers Only’, which helps a variety of farmers, ranchers, cowboys, cowgirls, and everything in between find like-minded matches.
Sometimes man’s best friend needs a little help to find love, too. If you’re a dog owner that wants to help your dog get a little puppy love, then thankfully there’s an app for you! Tindog is a great way to swipe across a not-quite-endless stream of adorable pups until your find a nearby one that you’d like to set up on a play date with your dog. We’re not sure if this really works in practice, but it’s there if you’d like to try it!
Some people have a lot of love to give, that it just spills over past their primary partner. For those people, along with all the marriages that are in the midst of their 7 year itch, there is Feeld (previously known as 3nder). Feeld is similar to other traditional dating apps, like Tinder, but is built for the purpose of setting up a ménage à trois. As of August, 2016, this app had 1.6 million downloads and counting, which means there’s more than a handful of curious couples out there!
Of all unconventional dating apps, this one definitely takes the cake. Sizzle, created by Oscar-Mayer, is a real dating app that matches hopeful lovers with the person of their dreams solely based on their bacon preferences, whether you like fried, baked, smoked, turkey bacon, or whatever! All joking aside, this might actually be a more important factor to matchmaking than about anything else. After all, you can avoid political conversations, but you’re going to have to share breakfast with this person for the rest of your life (in the best case scenario).
