A dating site for conspiracy nuts. Or is it?

Looking for that “special someone” who shares your belief about alien abductions, Obama’s birthplace, or grassy knolls? There’s a new dating site for you: Awake Dating. And it’s not controlled by the Illuminati, like those other dating sites!

“There is a dense air of suspicion and contempt around Awake Dating. The nature of the site almost requires it: At the core of these people’s identity is skepticism, not to mention the belief that the awakened understand things the majority population does not. And those feelings are double-downed the more the general public dismisses what they believe to be ‘crazy talk.’ It’s not hard to see how that can make it difficult not just to date, but to connect to anyone at all.”
