So what do you do when cannabis is an important part of your lifestyle, but you can’t find romantic partners who feel the same way? Obviously, this is a problem. Like so many other things when it comes to finding a significant other, whether or not a person is pro weed makes a difference. Even if you don’t personally partake in cannabis, maybe you work in the industry. Maybe you just simply support it. Regardless, it’s important that you find someone who is on the same page as you. Or at least, it’s important that they don’t mind it. So how do you find that person, or those people, if you don’t want to be exclusive? Where are these places? Well, that’s where pot friendly dating sites come in. So here it is. Tinder for Potheads: The complete guide to 420 dating.
Can you really meet stoners to go out with this way? Weed friendly dating and hook up sites?
Yep. That’s what these sites are for. They range from specializing in everything from hook ups to serious relationships, and sometimes more.
Does 420 friendly mean sexually?
Yes it can mean that, though not exclusively. In this case it means relationships, dating, sexually, all of the above as it relates to romance.
So is that what a 420 hookup is?
Yep. It can be anything from a one night stand to meeting that special someone who turns into a more long term and significant relationship.
Ok, so how do these weed dating sites work?
They work the same as any other dating site you’ve been on. The difference is that these networks are especially geared towards cannabis lovers and the 420 lifestyle. It’s really no different than if you were going on sites that were specific to any other special interest. The advantage of these sites is that they’ve already specialized in that one thing you want – a pro cannabis lifestyle. So you’re not about to run into anyone who says, “wait, you smoke pot??” when you visit any of these sites.
Are these sites legal?
Yep, they’re definitely legal for people aged 21 and up. Assuming that all you’re doing is dating, and not trying to sell anyone anything, you’re perfectly fine. You are merely trying to find people with whom you have a special interest in common. That’s all.
Are these sites only for weed consumers? Who exactly is on here?
The demographics are across the board. Do you partake in cannabis? Do you work in the industry? Support social equity? You’ll find everyone and anyone, diverse in gender, age, gender preference, religion, race, political affiliation, and so on. As long as you’re cannabis positive, there’s someone for everyone.
Are these safe and psycho free?
No site can guarantee that. You have to practice common sense and have healthy boundaries when you’re getting to know someone, especially in a dating sense, just like you would under any other circumstances. Weed dating is no different. So take the same precautions you would anywhere else with anyone.
Ok, got it. So what are these Tinder for Pothead sites?
