If happily ever after only comes to pass in fairy tales, then the trick might be to implant yourself in a Disney movie, right? And if you can’t do that (because turning yourself into an animated character is kinda hard), maybe consider joining MouseMingle, where at least you’ll be placed in a dating pool with similarly minded, happily-ever-after-seeking individuals.
Apparently, now that most dating apps have become too all-encompassing of interests and personality types, it’s necessary to create a tool specifically for lovers of the happiest place on Earth. Meet MouseMingle.com, “a place to connect people who love Disney and who want the same magic in their relationship.”
Whereas other dating sites only guarantee similar interests between matches, with MouseMingle, you can rest assured that you share at least one common interest with all the others on the platform — a love for all things Disney (and maybe, a really wonderful but also strange sense of humor). And while this is by no means the first interest-specific dating site to come about, it may attract one of the more colorful crowds.
“Niche dating sites are more common these days,” former Disneyland railroad engineer and MouseMingle founder Dave Tavres told Los Angeles Magazine. “There’s a dating site for pot lovers and JDate for Jewish people.” So of course, the next logical platform was for superfans of movies like Aladdin and Mulan. And best of all, you can tell if your potential matches are faking their lust because MouseMingle provides Disney-specific questions to help you weed out the posers. You don’t know the lyrics to Colors of the Wind backwards in Dutch? Next.
A membership to MouseMingle requires some serious dedication, considering the monthly membership fee of $12.55 you have to pay in order to contact a newfound love. But when love for Disney is at the top of your “must-have” list in a significant other, you gotta bite the bullet. “I’m not the guy who hits on women at the park, and there’s no flag that says, ‘hey I’m single,'” Tavres said. “I found it hard to find women who were as interested in Disney as I am.”
But now, Mr. Tavres, your dog days are over.
