Gothic Dating Website

I spotted a small soundbite in this evenings thelondonpaper (one of London's freebie commuter 'news'papers) tucked beside an article on various gay stereotypes and hangouts (did you know there is such a thing as a chav-fetish scene for gay men into hoodies and trainers????) talking about a Gothic dating/friendship site.

I've not followed the link yet so I've no idea what it's actually like but I thought I'd mention it here for anyone who might be interested. Louisa (one of my housemates) reminded me about it earlier as she'd seen the same article.

Anyway, here's the soundbite for you:

Make Up and Make Out
If you're a signle Goth looking for love or friendship, a new website could be the answer.
The site has been designed to make it easy for members to find others who share their interests, via a large number of "Gothic Groups"
With forums, blogs and instant messaging, find your Goth soulmate on www.gothpassions.com

(PS - hehe... just spotted they have an advert for Vampire: The Requiem on there site. So atleast it seems to be Roleplayer friendly for all of the RPGer Goths out there! Oh, it also looks like it's an American site although I've no idea about membership breakdown as I've not checked that out)

Although some of the Goths on there seem to be getting a bit confused by the idea of seeking soulmates and being "Gothy".

Notably personal adds with titles such as "go away" and "I seek isolation". :)

Most such sites are USA-centric. www.gothicsouls.com seems to be the best for the UK but I've had no luck with it yet. One would have hoped that the number of different social circles I've moved in would have led to me meeting someone by the old-fashioned real-life method by now, but it ain't happening.

I'll admit that I haven't clicked on the site yet, but I do have to comment and say that getting laid and finding a partner doesn't usually present a problem for the vast majority of people I've encountered on the scene. It usually goes sometihng like this:

Turn up to goth event
drink lots
get trashed, dance
fall over on nearest person of reasonable appeal
leave venue
wake up and ask where the person next to you keeps the handcuff keys,

Of course nothing of this is drawing on perosnal experience of course and the real problem was finding someone who wasn't going to end up going psycho on you. Not sure how the Internet is supposed to help that bit.

I dont, know the youth of today eh?
