Those who want to sign up to find a partner in gaming and in life can navigate their way to gopokedates.com, where the tagline is "Gotta catch 'em all, together." It's not completely crazy.
Amid all the reports of injuries, robberies and people running into police cars, there also have been anecdotes of love found among the pocket monsters.
"I’m not ugly, but I don’t have much beauty privilege (and make no mistake, beauty privilege yields tangible rewards).
From grade-school dances in gyms to corporate happy hours, I’ve been 'swiped left' on more than my fair share.""Sure, I have mom friends. But I want my entire posse — the ones who knew me when I never thought I’d meet someone, who were wingmen at those dreadful singles parties, and who listened to my crazy JDate stories.""I love men, but they can be a liability — one I’m not willing to risk when I’m on my own in a foreign place where I don’t know the subtle cultural cues, where I can’t call my best friend to come pick me up if things go awry."It sounds like a small detail: “Bachelorette” Jo Jo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are planning to move in together in Dallas, where Fletcher and her family live.
But it’s actually a break from “Bachelorette” tradition.
See how the game works, why everyone's so crazy about it, and all the stories that have come from it, from the game's positive impact on depression victims to armed robberies.
(Jhaan Elker/The Washington Post) Have you been eyeing that cute guy checking in regularly to that PokéStop down the street?
Been too shy to chat with the girl whom you've seen hanging out by the place where Dratini spawn?
PokéDates, a new service from the dating firm Project Fixup, is here to help. Pokémon Go, the mobile game that's taken the country by storm, has inspired its own dedicated dating service.
While the game is ostensibly aimed at kids, it's become quickly apparent that adults who remember the franchise from their childhood may be the ones most into the game.
While that may not scream true love, it's better than a broken collarbone. If you're already playing Pokémon Go, it's not a terribly bad date activity for Pokémon players looking to hunt as a duo — as long as you remember to look up every once in a while and talk to each other. You could take a nice walk along the river to find water-types.
