A Burlington, Vermont man has launched what is believed to be the world’s first Internet dating service specifically for people who routinely pick their noses. The site, pickme.com, will cater to the unique dating needs of singles with nervous tics such as nose-picking, according to Jackson Snyders, creator of the site.
“People with these kinds of habits just don’t have a lot of options when it comes to meeting other people,” stated Snyders, as he jammed an index finger two knuckles deep into his right nostril. “Even if we are lucky enough to get that first date, there’s usually not a second one. It took me a long time to figure out why. Now I have created a niche community just for people like me!”
So far the site has registered over 1400 paid users, and generates upwards of ten thousand hits per day. While most registrants are garden-variety nose-diggers, the site has also attracted singles with various other nervous tics, such as twitches, spasms, rapid eye-blinking, butt-scratching, and phonic tics like echolalia. There are even a few members with Tourette’s Syndrome.
“OMG, this site is a godsend!,” exclaimed one site user, known only as fingrgrl17. “In the past three weeks, I have met seven guys who all have messy keyboards like me. I’m no longer a pariah…I’m loving this!”
