Sex and the Single Ghost Hunter: Paranormal Singles

Where do us paranormal geeks (please contact me if you want to be in my book by that name) find our mates? I am a geek at heart, though I have also been a bit of a glamour girl, so the ironies were not pleasant in high school. I hung with both groups, on the short flag twirling team and modeling, hanging with the pretty girls and also the outcast nerds who got my intelligence and sense of humor, but neither one wanted to claim me as an attendant.

So, where do us paranormal lovers go to find our mates? Oh, boy, do I have your possibilities -- 

Singles sites online:

Places you are likely to find paranormal types:
Starbucks at Barnes and Noble on a Friday or Saturday night & paranormal book section
City ghost tours
Tours of haunted locales such as Eastern State Penn

Local ghost hunting group/workshop
join a cemetery association
Renaissance festivals
Book signings for paranormal book subjects
BFRO Bigfoot hunting events
Horror writer's group
Independent horror filmmakers - offer to be an extra

One of the biggest issues I run into with everyone I know who is married and is into the paranormal is that they more often than not have a spouse who either has disdain and ridicule for the subject or wants nothing to do with it. This has sent a lot of married paranormal folks out into the field falling madly in love with other paranormal geeks. Having support in this unusual aspect of one's life is rather like finding someone who loves S&M when that is your predilection or finding a partner who loves to camp. If you don't feel supported in your enthusiasm for your beloved focus, then you might have outgrown your partner. I'd rather see those paranormal marrieds become single instead of cheating on the side to be with someone who totally gets them.

So, paranormal singles, be prepared to be approached by lots of married's in the field who want to share their geek side with you. Stand firm. They need to take the plunge into the single life if you're going to share your interests, as well as your insanely creative bed talents. 


  1. I had no idea there were specific geek dating sites. lol.

  2. I'm a big time believer in the paranormal, especially Sasquatch. My brother and I argue about this all the time. He won't listen to reason no matter what. Here's an example of how hard it is to convince a close-minded person like my brother about Bigfoot: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEMqKLhToxI)

  3. What about paranormal bed habits??

    Just askin'... :oD


  4. Well, so far as bedding a geek--it's off the charts. If men calm down long enough to pick a woman for her smarts instead of how she looks in her jeans, they would be rewarded beyond their wildest fantasies....
