Online dating can be tricky for people who carry guns. What if you finally meet someone you really click with, only to find that guns are a problem for them - possibly even a deal-breaker?
How can concealed carriers avoid this wasted time and disappointment? Do you bring up guns right away (which can be creepy or threatening, even to people who might eventually be open to it), or wait a few dates to bring it up and just hope for the best?
For an increasing number of concealed carriers, the answer is to get the topic out of the way before they ever meet. Four online dating sites now cater specifically to people who exercise their right to keep and bear arms.
The largest seems to be ProGunDating.com. The site claims to have tens of thousands of users, and has a mission to "connect like-minded patriotic Americans who cherish and believe in our Constitutional right to bear arms." In an interview with FOX News, CEO Laura Clark said:
“As a female gun-owner, I started this dating site to empower women. I’m always packing, so I'll never have to join the #MeToo movement. With a pro-gun dating community, there will be no issues for myself or the many like-minded women who join the site in the future.”
