Move over JDate, there’s a new niche dating site in town: MouseMingle.com is made exclusively for single Disney fans looking for love.
The site debuted on December 1. A welcoming homepage reads: “Find YOUR Mickey or Minnie … MouseMingle.com is the place to connect people who love Disney and who want that same magic in their relationship.”
Los Angeles Magazine spoke with the site’s creator, David Tavres about the impotus for MouseMingle. “I’m not the guy who hits on women at the [Disney] parks, 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.”
The site is free to browse, but requires a membership payment of $12.55 if you want to contact a fellow fan. As Los Angeles Magazine points out, the 55 is a nod to the year the original Disneyland park opened, 1955.
Browsing the photos, you can see many MouseMinglers are already sharing pictures of themselves, usually posing in one of the various Disney parks. Some Disney employees seem to also be active, posting images of themselves in their Disney work uniforms.
The site prompts newly registered users to indicate whether they’re in the market for a “Park Pal,” friendship, dating, or marriage. You can also indicated which Disney park is closest to you, and whether or not you hold an annual pass.
But Mouse Mingle’s homepage indicates proximity to a park is not a requirement. “There are fans everywhere who want to find someone to share their Disney passions with.” Someday, your prince (or princess) will come.
