If you’re tired of swiping on looks and clever pickup lines, why not go a niché as possible?

The Passions Network connects singles based on extremely focused interests, like driving trucks, The Walking Dead, SCUBA, and… herpes?

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) talk to Michael Carter, the founder of the Passions Network, about the evolution of online love and how he grew his dating directory in the early days of Google search.
