To provide a safe and secure online dating environment where Republican singles can meet, socialize, and fall in love.
The stigma towards online dating continues to decrease1 and niche dating sites like ours are growing in popularity because we provide very specific environments for people looking for very specific dating criteria. There are niche dating sites for just about everything – farmers, vegans, pet lovers, even singles brave enough to call themselves ugly – but according to recent research, of all the traits on which couples want to find concordance, politics and religion are the highest.
Our PhilosophyBringing together Republican singles to create Republican families who uphold core Republican values.
Online Dating Industry
At a Glance
The online dating industry has expanded at 3.5 percent per year since 2008 and is now a $2 billion powerhouse2. Large, mass-audience sites, like Match.com and eHarmony still dominate the marketplace, but a growing number of niche dating sites are finding success marketing to singles in search of very specific dating criteria. Analysts expect this growth to continue over the next five years. A decreasing stigma about online dating, among other factors, is continually bringing new users to internet dating sites.
Political affiliation is among the strongest of all social traits in mate selection. In a recent study conducted by Rice University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln3, it was determined that political alignment may be more important than physical appearance or personality when choosing a mate. “It would appear humans place more importance on finding a mate who is a kindred spirit with regard to politics, religion, and social activity than they do on locating similar mates in terms of physique or personality,” said John Alford, the study’s lead author (Nauert, et al).
