The dating game: Packers fans now have website to find true love
GREEN BAY, Wis. — It’s a tale as old as time: Green Bay Packers fan goes on a date, finds their soul mate, only to discover that their perfect match is not a Packers fan (or worse yet, a Chicago Bears or Minnesota Vikings fan), immediately calls off the date, returns home still looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right.
That happens, right?
Well, if it does, it doesn’t have to anymore. That’s because there’s now a dating site exclusively for Green Bay Packers fans. Wait, what? Believe it or not, it’s true.
Officially launching in late March 2014, GreenBayPackersLovers.com currently has 190 female members and 174 male members.
"Packers Backers alike will enjoy the site," founder Kelly Davis said in a press release. "This is a state of the art dating website with the ability to participate in forums, real time full featured chat with members, send messages, receive messages, send winks, build a friends and hot people list, ban others from contacting you, see who has visited your profile, see who has winked at you, upload photos and decide whether they’ll be private or public, and even a built in calendar to keep track of important dates and public events planned for the community."
The site claims to be the "fastest growing relationship site on the web."
And, just in case anyone visiting the dating site might also be looking for a link to an Amazon store filled with Packers memorabilia, good news: there is.
A search of the site also revealed several members from the Kingdom of Tonga, a series of islands in Polynesia with a total population of 103,000 people — 10,000 of whom are currently affected by an outbreak of chikungunya (a mosquito-borne virus).
For those in Wisconsin, Tonga or anywhere in between, this dating site says that it’s for anyone "looking for true love, a long term relationship, are marriage minded, just looking for fun or maybe even just looking for friendship."
Have at it, Cheeseheads — er, Cheesehearts.
