The Short Version: Mainstream dating apps and sites don’t always have the right vibes or enough hardcore people to interest certain singles. That’s why niche dating websites have remained popular in certain communities. MetalDating has established itself as a social and romantic hub for singles who love metal music. This free dating forum was created by a metalhead for metalheads, and it has gotten rave reviews across the web.

It can be frustrating going through what seems like an endless amount of dating profiles to find a soulmate. You can only go through so many “21 Questions” games before you feel like you’re in a repetitive scene in a sad rom-com. Today’s singles are getting restless, and I think it’s about time we start being tactical.  

After all, it’s one thing to find someone worthy of a second date, but it’s another thing to find that special someone you genuinely connect and share interests with. Luckily for us singles, the internet is evolving and so should our dating lives.

You don’t have to settle when there are so many dating sites available to fit your needs. Singles can jam with like-minded dates on the top metalhead dating site: MetalDating. 

Mark, the owner of MetalDating, kept this in mind when he created the rock-out platform for metalheads. “This is the whole idea behind MetalDating,” he said. “I remember how hard it was to find partners and friends who shared the same interests. Then the internet came and made it so much easier for people to communicate from all around the world.”

Metalheads now have the opportunity to share their distinct style and fathomless love for music with a free subscription to MetalDating. If they upgrade to a premium membership package, users can access internal mail messaging, create their personal blogs, and discover powerful matchmaking options. 

Kudos to this site for providing a safe space where all users can create authentic and long-lasting relationships. 

Many grateful users have expressed their appreciation for this community known for its die-hard love for metal. This site not only allowed them to find someone they can relate to but let them be seen for who they truly are. As an anonymous reviewer said, “Thank you for making this site. Because of you I have found my metal soulmate! I couldn’t be happier!”

MetalDating Presents a Rock-Out Space for Music-Loving Singles

Let’s talk about music. That’s the most popular conversation starter you will find on this site, and well, honestly, anywhere. It can be a struggle to put yourself out there in the dating pool, but when you have dedicated websites such as MetalDating, singles can find peace of mind knowing they don’t have to go in blind. 

The MetalDating team allows users to upload their favorite music albums on their blogs. That way, users can determine whether someone is a potential suitor just from their taste in music and  without having to hop into his or her messages to get to know them. 

Music is one of the most common shared interests that brings people together. To share such an interest is a magnet waiting to connect. Some would say that musical compatibility is essential in a dating relationship, and MetalDating didn’t fail to recognize that.

An anonymous user agreed, writing. “After failed attempts on other dating websites, I was tired of not meeting guys with my same taste in music (the basis of any relationship, in my book!) Found this site by accident… After a bit of chatting, we found out we were in the same city! 2 years later we got married and always tell people this story.”

MetalDating provides music-loving singles the opportunity to share their interest in music with no limits. Metalheads are free to share their favorite band or rockstar without being judged. In fact, that was the sole purpose of MetalDating being created in the first place. 

“For many of us music is almost the most important thing in life and to share this with friends and partners makes so much sense,” Mark said. 

MetalDating is a top-tier dating site where metalheads can come as themselves and find like-minded individuals on the other end. 

From One Metalhead to Another

Mark’s experience finding his soulmate is no different from that of any other hopeless romantic metalhead out there. Mark recognized the lack of metalhead dating sites. So he took it upon himself to create a website that not only helped him find his metal soulmate but can help his fellow metal-loving singles do the same. “I have been a metalhead since the early ’90s and as the Internet spread and more and more dating sites popped up I wondered why there wasn’t a site for us (metalheads).”

MetalDating was created in 2006 and has become one of the largest dating sites for metalheads in the world. Users from all over have praised Mark and the MetalDating team for establishing such a friendly niche space. 

You can read an array of success stories on the website where subscribers attest to the site’s credibility. “I never figured I would get very far with dating sites, but on this of all places, I met my absolute soulmate,” said one anonymous user. 

“Thank you for making this site, because of you I have found my metal soulmate! I couldn’t be happier!”

Such testimonials reflect why MetalDating stands out from other dating sites. Mark said the ser response to the impact the site has made on the metalhead community is humbling. “All the positive feedback we get just reminds us why we have to continue doing this.”

It’s refreshing to see a dating site committed to ensuring its users find their metal soulmate. Independently owned sites like this are so rare, and the best part is that it doesn’t stop there! As the new year approaches, Mark and the MetalDating team said they are strategizing ways to make the site even more helpful for their users. 

According to Mark, you can expect to see the MetalDating site, “updated, less complex and more secure in 2022.” 

Bottom line: When a metalhead creates a space for other metalheads, the results are promising. 

Discovering the Next Steps with Your Soulmate

Thousands of people use MetalDating and find matches that lead to dating and long-lasting relationships. It’s all about putting your best foot forward. With the advancement of technology and the evolution of the internet, making it work can be a dream come true. 

“The internet came and made it so much easier for people to communicate with others from all around the world and dating as well,” said Mark. “If your love and passion is strong enough, distance means nothing.” And you know what? He’s absolutely right! 

A user who had to maintain a long-distance relationship with her match shared the ending of her story. “It’s been 6 years since me and my partner got together.” 

Once you’re matched, it’s time to set the stage for your new relationship. That means discussing the next steps. Having honest conversations about what you want can make or break any relationship. Planning out dates that your metal-lover enjoys can go a long way. So go buy that album and pick up that die-hard gear from a local thrift store. MetalDating is just a start, but it certainly doesn’t end there.
