Making A Spiritual Connection

Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places? Hoping to discover that one person to spend eternity with? Have you been dead for a year or longer? Then there's finally a dating website for you!

Find that special something! is eHarmony for the haunters. If you're a living soul who appreciates the incorporeal nature of a human-spirit relationship, sorry. Fleshbags aren't allowed. The site is set up strictly for ghost-on-ghost. Ages range from 18 to over 1,000 years old, but most of the profiles seem to be stuck in the 1800s. The toughest decision is deciding what kind of tortured soul you're looking for. Do you want a partner who died horribly, tragically, mysteriously, or suddenly? You can add your own profile (again, provided you're dead), where you enter your birth date, death date, and build (smoky, misty, cloudy, ethereal, etcetera). The site is also available in Spanish for all our deceased Latino friends.

This has to be one of the greatest humor sites I've ever seen. While there are some strange folk out there who actually get turned on at the thought of a hookup with a real dead ghost, is purely for laughs. Every inch of the site is littered with jokes, and most of them land. The profiles available for viewing have great ironic bios, and even the Terms of Use got a few chuckles out of me. There's a contact email that actually works, so I sent one along to ask the creator about the possibility of a zombie dating site in the future. ("You look good enough to eat!") is not a very dense website -you'll click through everything in a matter of minutes- but it is amusing, and a pretty accurate send-up of real dating sites for us poor humans. Be sure to spend some time in the chat room. I laughed so hard I cried. It's the perfect place for two lonely people to swap ectoplasm.
