In a world so full of options, how do you find the peanut butter to your jelly? The milk to your oreo? The organic, free-range, nonpartisan, gluten-free tempeh to your other healthy thing? The following food-related dating sites will hook you up with the dietary match of your dreams.
1. Salad Match
This free app created by chain, Just Salad, hooks you up with a match based on your leaf-eating preferences. Similar to Tinder, you log-in through Facebook, pick your local Just Salad location, the type of salad eater you are (e.g. vegan, meat-lover, gluten-free etc.) and then lets you swipe “yes” or “no” on potential matches. You can then reach out to them and send them a message. I created my own profile below, which is coincidentally the best dating profile I’ve ever had:
2. Gluten Free Singles
Whether you are gluten-intolerant or just abstaining from gluten by choice, Gluten-Free Singles can help connect you to the “no bread for me, thanks” hottie of your dreams.
This site hooks you up with people who want to pay for your hot meal. Once you sign up and your profile is approved, you indicate whether you want to be the one giving or receiving dinner offers, then fill out your dining preferences and set up dates. The catch is the one paying for the meal has to make the first move, as the recipient can only “wink” at suitors they are interested in. I really, really, want to hate this, but I’m actually signing up as we speak.
4. My Vegetarian Dating
Step right up, veggies, and join this site to find your meat-free match so you can feed each other carrots all night on a faux bear-skin rug. As with most of these sites, it’s free to join, but in order to take it to the next level and message someone you must be a paid member.
5. Wine Dating Club
Calling all winos, Wine Dating Club let’s you connect with other oenophiles and send out “flirts” to let a member know you’re interested. Pro tip: I checked and “Sommelier69” is already taken.
6. Hot Sauce Passions
While a cool idea in theory, this website looks like it was created in someone’s basement in 1994 right after Al Gore invented the internet. There are approximately five users and all of them are dudes in Nascar sunglasses. But for you diehard hot-sauce lovers, please indulge.
You can also always take your food romance game to the next level with Whole Foods speed dating. Or create your own dietary dating site! Just don’t create a dating site for people who put potato chips in their sandwich (aka Chipwich). I’m working on the copyright for that. It’s called GetLays.
