Cinderella needed help from her Fairy Godmother to meet Prince Charming. Aside from that whole midnight curfew and her coach turning into a pumpkin, the night was the first of many happy ones to come. Ariel had to sign a contract with the evil Ursula, Belle contracted Stockholm Syndrome, and Snow White had to eat a poison apple before the man of her dreams showed up.
Luckily, modern day Disney lovers don't need to endure evil plots or rely on fairy godmothers to find love. Thanks to a new dating site that connects Disney fans with other Disney fans, finding prince charming could be just a click or two away.
A Disney dating site? Why not? Teens already developing preferences for online dating. Plus, there's all sorts of niche dating sites from JDate to dating sites for dogs, so a site connecting Disney fans only makes sense, especially to the site's creator, Dave Tavres, who told LA Magazine, "I’m not the guy who hits on women at the park, and there’s no flag that says, 'Hey I’m single.' I found it hard to find women who were as interested in Disney as I am.”
For people "looking for the magic of Disney" in their relationships, Mouse Mingle is a typical dating site in that you make a profile, but this one will have things like your favorite Disney song and your favorite character. You'll also indicate if you're looking for friendship, dating, a happily ever after, or just someone to go to a Disney park with.
If you want to send messages to other users, you'll need to pay for a membership, which is $12.55 per month. According to Tavres, the 55 cents is an homage to 1955, the year the first Disneyland opened in California.
Who knows? Maybe you'll have better luck with Mouse Mingle than BuzzFeed did using Disney pickup lines on the street. Good luck!
