Anyone who’s ever listened to AM radio late at night is probably familiar with Coast to Coast AM. The long-running program (it’s the most-listened to late-night radio show in the country) covers a variety of strange topics four hours a night, seven nights a week. Though its current host, George Noory, has taken the show in a slightly different direction (he focuses more on sociopolitical conspiracy theories, whereas his predecessor was more committed to otherworldly phenomena), his newest endeavor, Paranormal Date, is bringing spooky back.
In an announcement on his website, Noory explained how the new dating service came to be:
“Millions of people use dating services worldwide but few have a chance to meet people sharing their same interests in the paranormal. I speak all over the country and always people come up to me and say ‘I can’t find someone who understands.’”
He continued in a video:
“[People who use the site] wanna meet people of like minds. People who are into science, ghosts, UFOs, conspiracies...we wanna meet people like them, we might even wanna date them! “
The site is structured like most online dating services: you create a profile, answer a few questions, and start looking for a match. The only significant difference between Paranormal Date and its competitors is the fact that you’ll be guaranteed to match with the kind of person who would sign up for a site called Paranormal Date.
While you probably wouldn’t take an entry like the one below seriously if seen on OKCupid, on Paranormal Date...it’s probably not a joke.
Now that 1 in 10 Americans have signed up for online dating sites, it’s no surprise that more and more narrowly focused services are popping up. Giving his listeners (and people like them) a place to meet was a smart idea, and one that could prove profitable is the site is a success. If you’re looking for life in other dimensions, it certainly couldn’t hurt to find love along the way.
