The site also restricts contact to between paid members in an effort to prevent spam or anti-gun rhetoric.“Our belief is if people are open and honest about gun ownership in the first place their intentions are good,” Lund said.
Concealed Carry Match, a new Second Amendment themed dating website, aims to give gun owners a safe alternative to traditional dating.The dating site uses a paid membership platform that allows users to add their own profile as well as search out other gun lovers in their area.Molly Lund, the site’s chief operating officer, said though anti-gunners may mistake it as inflammatory, the site is not meant as a political dating statement.It’s simply a means for daters with a common interest to avoid any awkward mentions of fire power.“We just wanted a safe place where people can connect with that expectation that the people they connect with share their beliefs and their lifestyle choices,” Lund told in a phone interview.
“We’re taking away those awkward moments and giving everyone an even starting point.” Lund said that though the name points to concealed carry, the website is really for anyone that enjoys guns or wants a gun owner in their life.
Lund said the company understands the attitudes of their clientele — as notoriously private — and maintains strict privacy policies to protect its members.
She told that the company reviews profiles as they come in on a daily basis, removing fake ones from the pile.
Not4helps you meet platonic friends online that you can connect with in real life.
Our members are people like you looking for hiking partners, dining companions, drinking buddies, a friend to go see a movie with, someone to play tennis with, or a great new best friend.
We’re two sisters that live across the country from each other and think it’s really hard to meet new friends - like really good friends, not acquaintances. I lived in Florida and although the people were friendly and I was very active socially, and I did make friends, it was very transitory.
