We previously wrote about Wiccan dating websites, but today we’re going to be discussing Pagan dating websites. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the lifestyles, yes, they are different. WitchfulThinking.com says Wicca is a branch of Paganism, and Metal-Gaia.com says three out of 1,000 people identify as Pagan.
To narrow down your search, we’ve compiled a list of nine dating websites that are just for Pagan singles and that are free. Your love life and your wallet will thank you!
Most of people know Match as the most popular and successful dating site, with more than 30 million members and having led to more dates, relationships, and marriages than any other platform. These are also the reasons people should think of Match as the best option for Pagan singles. Besides Match’s impressive size and reputation, the site also offers a free membership that never expires and allows you to upload your info and photos, browse, receive profile suggestions via email, and communicate (e.g., virtual likes and winks and receive messages).

Pagan Dating’s mission is to be more than just a dating site — the team also wants to be the go-to community for Pagan men and women, one that has all the best parts of matchmaking and social media sites rolled into it. A free standard membership on Pagan Dating allows you to fill out a profile, add pictures, view other members, and send virtual greetings. Other premium features include instant messaging, audio and video chat, and the option to sell some of your own Pagan merchandise in an Etsy-like store.
“Bringing Pagans together” is Pagan Harmony’s motto, and the site accomplishes that by offering a friendly, non-judgmental atmosphere and free (as well as nearly free) subscriptions. Registration, browsing, virtual smiles, and other forms of communication won’t you cost anything, so you should find your god or goddesses in no time. “We hope you enjoy the site, and please contact us with any comments or suggestions for features,” said Founder Crafty Tabby.
Friendship, dates, love — it can all be found on Pagan Partners, which launched around 2001. Whether you’re straight or gay, man or woman, old or young, you’re welcome to sign up for one of the largest and most popular Pagan dating sites in the world. And speaking of signing up, it’s completely free to create a profile or advert, as the site calls it, answer questions about yourself, and search by your dating preferences, among other things.
Pagan Singles Dating
“What are you waiting for?” is what Pagan Singles Dating asks you as soon as you land on the homepage, and if you don’t have a good answer, you’ll want to join the site right away. You won’t need your wallet, and you’ll be able to upload facts about yourself and your ideal match as well as photos. Once you’re done, take a look at the thousands of fellow single Pagans, and if someone catches your eye, send them a flirt. Another perk of Pagan Singles is it’s desktop and mobile friendly, so you can take the site with you wherever you go and still have a great experience.

In addition to sending you daily matches, the site provides all the necessary tools for you to do the searching on your own.

Not only is signup free on Pagan Dating Site, but it’s also quick. All you have to do is provide your gender, the gender you’re attracted to, your birth date, email address, and username. While everyone on the site is Pagan, the team emphasizes that they’re also all unique and come from many walks of life. So when you’re not bonding over your shared beliefs, you can be getting to know someone new on various other levels.
Pagan Dating UK
If you’re Pagan and British, Pagan Dating UK is our top recommendation. Founded in 2013, this free Pagan online dating site has a team that understands how important it is to have someone who just gets you — no questions asked. Don’t worry about having to explain yourself and your lifestyle — all the members are already on the same page as you. Plus, having something in common from the get-go is an easy way to break the ice.
Pagan Dating Ireland
For an even more targeted niche audience, there’s Pagan Dating Ireland, which is part of the Pagan Dating UK family. Here, you won’t have to worry about someone thinking negatively about your Paganism, and you won’t have to worry about dating long distance. “We are a much friendlier and more open dating site than the vast majority of those out there that you may encounter or, indeed, may have encountered. We are just as much about creating friendships as we are about creating new romances!” the site reads.
Now It’s Up to You! Merry Meet, Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again!

You don’t have to go traipsing around the world or even around your town talking to a thousand strangers until you find your match. You can just go online and join one of these sites, where you’re guaranteed to meet more than three like-minded folks!
