Love Disney, Harry Potter, or Star Wars? These Dating Websites Are for You

Author: Mary Grace Donaldson, The Dating Game

Are you part of a fandom? Don’t worry. We won’t judge you. In fact, I’m part of fandoms myself (Parks and Rec, Veronica Mars and House, M.D. to name a few). Fandoms are different for everyone, really — and for many of us they come as a result of particular films.

For some it’s Star Wars, for some it’s Harry Potter, for some it’s cult film classics like Home Alone or A Christmas Story.

As you can see, if you’re a millennial who is part of a film fandom, or any fandom, really — while you may be unique within your family or particular friend group –- you’re not alone (otherwise, there wouldn’t be a fandom)! But, if your fandom is highly unusual or uncommon within your family or social group, it could feel otherwise.

That said…what if I told you that there were places you could go to find dates…who were also part of your movie fandom? Such places do exist in the form of these dating websites.

Dating For Muggles

Harry Potter fans, I get it…you don’t want to admit that you’re a Muggle (in the sense that you’re a human and not, in fact, a wizard waiting for your Hogwarts letter). But feel free to admit it here, and join Dating For Muggles…where you could meet your Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff soul mate. While HP was a book first and foremost, it developed into an incredibly successful film franchise…and it definitely applies here.


Don’t forget — Star Wars is home to dating advice…but there’s a dating site out there for all of the fans in the galaxy. Touted as the “#1 Star Wars Dating Site, Period,” LFGDating offers “thousands of other Star Wars fans” as part of its dating network. While not only home to profiles from Star Wars fans, Star Wars is its biggest draw (or, at least, it appears to be).



As a self-proclaimed Disney addict (as I’ve previously mentioned, I’m in the process of planning my next Disney trip) I’ve saved my favorite for last. Fellow Disney geeks, rejoice – you can, as the site says, “find your Minnie or Mickey” at MouseMingle.com. It goes on to indicate that “you don’t need to live near a Disney park to find someone like you.” And you get to talk all about Disney movies when answering the profile questions — making MouseMingle.com perfect for avid Disney movie fans as well as park goers.

Dating Advice as Told by Star Wars

Author: Michelle Ioannou, The Dating Game

“I love you. I know.”

That exchange may be my favorite exchange in any film I’ve ever seen. I actually have a bracelet that says it that I wear everyday (have I established how obsessed I am with Star Wars yet?).

But yes, I am a complete and utter Star Wars nerd, and proud. I just recently got back from a trip to Disney World where, you guessed it, I frolicked all around the Star Wars area in Star Wars glory.

As I am still very much in Star Wars mode (okay, I always am) I give you dating advice found within the movies – well, all of the movies except The Force Awakens.


Just because someone’s scruffy-looking doesn’t mean that person doesn’t deserve a chance. raw.gif

Plus, that scruffy-looking nerf herder could be Harrison Ford. And you could end up marrying him and having a son. Moral of the story, don’t judge someone based on looks.


Don’t try to fight your feelings. Admit them before it’s too late.
One of you could die, and you will regret not saying anything, and this is how you’ll react. 


Basically, don’t be scared to tell the other person how you feel. You don’t want to live the rest of your life in a constant state of regret.


If they’re too toxic, you need to leave the relationship.19638810.jpg

Not everyone’s right for you, or a good influence on you. It may be hard, but you need to walk away from those people.


You can die of a broken heart.
(And no, I don’t want to hear you say that Palpatine actually killed her.)


I’m not going to elaborate further on this one.


Everyone needs a good wingman, no matter how old you are.tumblr_inline_nwj0miIgDa1sgm97w_500.gif

We all need that person who’s always there for us – whether it’s comforting us when we’re heartbroken or out at the bar forcing you to go talk to that person you’ve been staring at.


If you think she’s into another guy, just ask her outright to clear the air. It may be her brother.a5e4dcd13755aa5ae23bb73c884bbe63

Han straight up asks Leia if she loves Luke. She does – as a brother, because that’s what he is. Moral here? Don’t be jealous and sassy, just ask.


Speaking of, don’t kiss your brother. tumblr_lhnxkqsBWX1qz4u9io1_500.gif

I’m not going to elaborate on this either.


Admit your feelings, even if the person you’re in love with is constantly full of sass or too cool for school. 


Once again, don’t be afraid to admit your feelings.


And of course, you shouldn’t lose your sass either. giphy-1.gif

Gotta give it right back to him right?


If you don’t like romantic long walks on the beach, remember this line. 


There, no more cliche walks on the beach. You’re welcome.


True love will last throughout the years, even if you give birth to the next Darth Vader.


True love lasts despite any obstacles that may rise.


Actually though, after 40+ years, you can still love someone so much that you don’t want to see that person leave. tumblr_o0517kiGkU1qaboh9o1_540.gif

To repeat the above, true love lasts. And true love is still strong decades later.


And finally, find a man like Harrison Ford. giphy-1.gif

No elaboration here needed. Just look at that smile.
