There are no shortage of niche dating sites, offering to serve everyone from women "in their prime" seeking younger men to ladies hunting for wealthy men to married couples interested in extramarital affairs.
A new online dating website, You and Me Are Pure, has launched to help virgin singles meet other virgins online.
The aim of the site, the creators explain, is "to use virginity as a significant compatibility tool to bring people together. Some people may overlook the bonding power of virginity. Virginity as an important common aspect between people can lead to close friendships, or can even serve as a mutual precious gift of marriage."
The founders of the website, Lety and Jose Colin, explain that they were virgins until they were wed. "Our site is designed specifically for singles who share the value of premarital sexual abstinence," said Jose Colin, according to PR Newswire. "We offer a comfortable place where abstinence is nothing to be ashamed of and can be discussed safely and with freedom."
The Colins write in the "About Us" section of the site, "Our appreciation for each other's virginity and for each other as a whole lead us into a materialized life commitment.'
The website also has a gift shop offering cards, gift certificates, and wristbands, among other items.
