Book Nerds Can Find Love, Too!
A new dating website, Alikewise.com, matches people based on their taste in literature.
Over the past few years, a slew of dating websites have popped up on the web that cater to every type of person. There’s GreenSingles for people who are looking for an eco-friendly match, DateBritishGuys for those who fancy a hunky accent, and the list goes on, and on, and on…
But where should one go to find love if their days are spent buried in a book? Where will they find the fellow book nerd of their dreams?
Alikewise is where. It’s a brand new dating website that matches users based on whether they loved the Harry Potter series or are Shakespeare fanatics.
“Other sites say they know what makes people compatible,” writes founders Matt Masina and Matt Sherman on the site. “We’re skeptical of that promise… We think it’s better to find an area of passionate interest, and let you take it from there.”
Alikewise is currently free for its users, and lets you search for possible matches based on a certain book or author. Pretty cool, huh?
Except, we’re sure if we entered any of our guilty pleasure books (cough, cough, chick lit), we wouldn’t come up with the best dating prospects. (Newser)
Tell us: what do you think about being matched based on your taste in books?
