Finally, a Dating Site For Pot Lovers

The following article first appeared on Substance.com:


Are you having a hard time meeting people on OKCupid, Tinder, or in the real world because your love of weed is a deal-breaker? Does he find your extensive bong collection a buzz-kill? Or did she harsh your mellow when she asked, “Cheech who?”

Fear not, lonely tokers-looking-for-love, you don’t have to smoke alone forever: My420mate.com is a new dating site promising to help you meet the one who won’t be put off by your passion for pot—because they share it. ”Everyone you meet in our community is guaranteed to be accepting of the 420 lifestyle,” promises the website, which is billed as “The #1 Online Dating Community for Cannabis Lovers!” The community is “full of people from all walks of life who seek to live and share a relaxed lifestyle and outlook on life,” says founder Miguel A. Lozano.

The site’s pot pun-friendly motto is “plant your seed and watch your love grow” and it seems love is blooming already. Testimonials suggest that a few cannabis couples have already been matched through the site. Says Greg L.: “Being a medical marijuana patient, it has been hard to find someone accepting of my lifestyle. Thanks to My420Mate, i have found that special someone.”

If you’re just a casual cannabis user, the website welcomes you, too. The community is “not just for stoners” and also includes “professionals, laborers, doctors, lawyers and other singles who are all 420 friendly.” Founders say they are optimistic about the future of legal marijuana and they expect more states to follow in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington. But in the meantime, we all know love doesn’t have to be legal to be real.
