Dating site based on music taste personality 11 year old dating chat rooms
Its USP is its simplicity: you just enter your favourite music, and it puts you in touch with people in your area who like the same thing.
I thought I’d sign up and find out if Tastebuds could be the social web’s next big thing, or just a clever gimmick.
Trouble is, I’m married, so I couldn’t exactly play it straight, in case (yes yes, staggeringly unlikely, I know) I got some actual attention. Parish told me the site’s users are predominantly indie-rock types: the most frequently selected artists are Radiohead, The Smiths, Arcade Fire, Animal Collective.
Unfortunately, I like those artists too and I couldn’t run the risk of meeting someone with whom I had anything in common. Based on our shared music tastes, only six people were deemed suitable, all of them Jamiroquai fans.
So I pretended to be into acts only a maniac could love: Jamiroquai, The Lighthouse Family, Son Of Dork, and Afroman of ‘Because I Got High’ fame. One of them, Agata, seemed unwilling to reveal any part of her face above the mouth, which made we wonder what she was hiding. I had no fans and had not been favourited by anybody.
These days no-one thinks you’re some kind of whey-faced spod just because you met your girlfriend on Guardian Soulmates.
