History

In 2002, Michael Carter founded a dating directory site, A Greater Date.[1] After the directory expanded to include many niche sites, he and a programmer built Passions Network in 2004, starting with 100 standalone sites.[2][3]

Methodology

Members can create profiles and join an unlimited amount of Passions sites.[4] The sites are broken down by typical categories, such as religion, politics, sexual orientation and weight, as well as idiosyncratic ones,[4] such as Green-Passions (for environmentalists),[5] Disabled Passions (for those with disabilities),[5] Stache Passions (for mustache aficionados)[6] and Trek Passions (for fans of science fiction).[7]

Users

As of March 2012, the network consists of 206 niche sites, with 2.7 million members.[2]

In Popular Culture

On a 2006 episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, O’Brien poked fun at Trek Passions, as he quipped, "The fans say the dating website is going great and any month now they hope a girl will join."[8]
