First it was fake online dating profiles, now it’s fake online dating sites. As much as vampires are all the rage among angst-riddled tees, the dating site DateOrDie.net is not actually real. Sorry, emo kids!
It’s a gimmick promoting yet another…wait for it…Vampire Based Drama Series “Dead and Lonely” on IFC. As far as fake dating sites go, it’s not bad. DateOrDie.net, the fictional site that “Dead and Lonely” characters use to meet their prey, is complete with video testimonials and multiple entry points, and yes, I clicked to browse the members profiles.
For the record, I do not have a vampire fetish, but I actually registered on the site to see what happened so you don’t have to. Unfortunately, nothing happens. No faux vampire matches. No fang fetish. I was just redirected to the “Dead and Lonely” website which I stayed on for about two seconds because I haven’t yet jumped on the undead bandwagon (but if it were a reality TV show on vampire fetish, I would have Tivo-ed it in a heartbeat).
And for those of you who are disappointed that the site isn’t real, free business idea! Let me know when Date-a-vampire.com goes live.
