The true subculture of our time was ignored by the makers of niche web-based dating services for too long — until a brave vaper named Octavian seized vape dating as his own, providing a service Big Dating sites refuse to offer.
With a North American focus, VapersCupid.com is a jackpot if you've long dreamed of joining a dating website that takes its aesthetic cues from 2004-era MySpace, or a website that provides an opportunity to build a community from the ground up:
The first 150 people to join were VapersCupid.com rewarded with VIP status.
Octavian told Gizmodo that the gender ratio for the service so far is "something to be worked on." Sounds like Lady Vapeheads just hit the jackpot, as long as the jackpot is potential vape-mates (vaparamours??) who are mostly men, and/or a forum where you can freely use the word "squonker" amongst your peers. (A squonker is a battery box with a bottle of vape juice.)
However: Big warning. Huge warning. The VapersCupid.com VIPs I talked to were not as discriminating as I'd expected.
"It's not that it's so important that the person I date is a fellow vaper," one fellow told me.
"I don't think it's important to date a fellow vaper, just a non smoker," another vaper wrote.
