Love lockdown: the untapped world of celebrity fan dating sites


As Yeezy Dating, a site dedicated to finding romance for Kanye West fans, prepares to launch, what other stars could inspire online connections?

Are you single? Do you struggle to find a partner? Is this specifically because nobody enjoys the life and work of Kanye West quite as much as you do? Well, fear no more, because the internet is about to fix your love life once and for all.

In the next few weeks, a service called Yeezy Dating will launch. Yeezy Dating aims to not only match users by location, but by their favorite Kanye West tracks and albums. Yeezy Dating is genius, and other celebrity dating sites are bound to spring up in its wake. Here are five with the most promise.

The tyranny of choice affects us all. From a simple interaction in a supermarket to the endless array of swipeable faces on Tinder, we often find ourselves paralysed by the infinite options that confront us. If you can identify with this, you need Ed Sheeran Dating. Its a dating site exclusively for people who want to simplify their lives. Meet someone who has also only decided to like the work of Ed Sheeran because hes popular. Get married because it seems like the right thing to do. Dance to the Ed Sheeran song that sounds like Lets Get It On at your wedding. Live together without excitement or disappointment for several years, then die and play the Ed Sheeran song about flowers at your funeral. Easy peasy.

Swift Dating

On the surface, a dating site specifically for Taylor Swift fans seems redundant, because everyone quite likes Taylor Swift. But this is not a Taylor Swift dating site. Instead, Swift Dating is aimed right at the hearts of those who enjoy the work of Taylor Swift and Jonathan Swift in equal measure. Like lilting country-lite pop songs about the yearnings of adolescence and ironic deadpan 18th-century literature? Fantastic, you may enter. Only like one of those things? Then get out, you barbarian.

Cher Dating

Do you like to express an array of complicated furious emotions purely in impenetrable hieroglyphics, just like Cher does on Twitter all the time? You do? Then sign up for Cher Dating; a site that sends prospective matches a random selection of emojis and waits while they forlornly attempt to decode them. If they manage to somehow wrestle a scrap of meaning out of them? Congratulations, its true love.
