Pokedates Are Now A Thing

Michael Garcia - July 21, 2016

In just two short weeks Pokemon go has taken over the country. I walk around New York City and see thousands of mostly adults spending every waking moment they aren't working catching little animated monsters. You see them move in crowds in parks and big squares like a flock of loser geese. So, it was inevitable that someone would come up with a way to get laid out of it. Now there is Pokedates, a dating service that matches people who are obsessed with Pokemon Go. You simply let them know when you are available and what you are looking for in a fellow Pokemon trainer/sex partner and then they match you up and you meet up to catch Pokemon together. Much like a drug dealer, the first one is free and each subsequent date is $20.

Maybe it's just that I don't get the whole Pokemon Go thing but this seems kind of dumb to me. I get J-date or Christian Mingle because you share values, but you loving a stupid app is not the basis of a good relationship. That's like if two years ago they made a dating app based on Candy Crush.
