theCHIVE Dating launches today!

Over the past 6 months, we’ve had the pleasure of reading stories about Chivers and Chivettes who’ve connected on theCHIVE. We’ve even had some engagements, marriages, and a few Chive babies on the way.

To that end, we’ve received hundreds of emails from Chivers and Chivettes asking us to create a Chive dating site. Let’s face it, we’re a humor site, not a dating site. As fate would have it, we were recently approached by a cool new dating site, How About We, who wanted to partner with theCHIVE and offer our community a dating service.

How About We has become wildly popular by taking a fresh approach to online dating by keeping it simple. They know people don’t have time to commit their entire afternoon/evening to a date that could be a nightmarish gravy train on biscuit wheels. The idea behind How About We is to simply fill in some easy blanks. For example, just ask, “How about we… Grab a beer and play some Golden Tee”, or “How about we… Go for a hike”.

Fill in the time you’re available and if somebody is intrigued by your idea, the date is set. How About We is easy to navigate and removes many of the pressures associated with online dating.

How About We has integrated a dating section on theCHIVE and we’re launching it today. It’s not inclusive to just Chivers and Chivettes. If that were the case, it may be quite the sausage-fest, but they have their dating service integrated to other sites, including our sister site, theBERRY.com, that open up the dating pool substantially.

Take it for a free test drive and enjoy. Here at theCHIVE we’re big on helping our community make connections. We know it’s not for everybody but we also know there’s a lot of people who will enjoy this easy-to-use service and hopefully find somebody to make them happy. Check out theCHIVE dating site right here and enjoy!

      Don't worry, apparently it's not for Chivers anyway…unless they perhaps meant 'not exclusive to Chivers and Chivettes'….

    • dumb

      Agreed, this is the stupidest fucking idea I have ever seen. Way to sell out, chive. This is about as cool as nickelback…

      • https://www.facebook.com/GingaChris Chris Ginga Morris

        Except nickleback were never cool.

        • hassssss

          precisely. It's a fucking stupid idea. That's a solid basis for a relationship, hey we both look at pictures on the intertubes! marry me!

            "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public." — Henry Mencken

            case in point, when the chivers bumped up the bid on a chive shirt on ebay to around $200.00. chivers will spend ridiculous amounts of money on anything with "the chive" plastered on it(even if the chive didn't originate the idea because "DURRRR, not everything on the internet is original, so it's okay for nearly nothing on the chive to be original! DURRR!". at the end of the day, being a "chiver" is no less retarded than being a Juggalo.

    • truthserum

      Here's a new game that ALL Chivers, Chivettes, and Trolls can play – it's the "How about we…" line and then fill it in like a regular Chiver would – for example:

      "How about we….take turns making butter popsicles and arguing how saying Bill Fucking Murray is way cooler than saying Ted Goddamn Danson"
      "How about we….say 'Chive on!' to passerby's and hope they don't grab our man-titties in anger"
      "How about we….get CRAZY defensive when someone insults the Chive community or LG"
      "How about we….not get out of the house to meet real people…….together!"

    • Lawndart

      I THINK, now I'm just guessing here, that when people said they wanted a dating site, they didn't expect to PAY $30 A MONTH TO DATE. "Join for free" is JUST that. All you can do is view all the other members on the site who probably haven't paid either. Laaame is right.

  • Logan

    Wow… The Chive has officially gone down hill.

    • Elise

      really, for a site that constantly amazes with their charity, chivettes, and hilarity, i love that they do one thing that some people might not like and 'there goes the chive'

      i like dating websites, if you don't like it, just don't use it. they're not for everybody

      • Paul

        Not the first thing Elise.

    • mark t.

      yeah, they should just close their doors. i saw like two reposts in yesterday's DAR too.


    • https://thechive.com/ Paula_

      I guess you're the type of asshat to stick a screwdriver in his eye and then complains about having a screwdriver in his eye?
      If you don't like it, don't click on it. Now fuck off and give that screwdriver a good twist.

      • DJChive

        shut up whorepants.

    • MammyNun3

      or maybe uphill with the kickbacks they will be getting. Its a business after all.

    • Jessie

      Why are most of the profiles 12+ days old when the site just launched today?

      • Horseface

        Because it's not really "Chive Dating"…..it's an already established dating site that is now also using a Chive web address and replaced some (but not all) mentions of its real name with "Chive Dating."

        This site is rapidly becoming a joke.

  • Dick Salad

    Now LG needs to sign up and reject everyone for lulz….

  • SweetAwesomeness

    I call dibs on Paula!!!

    • randomchiver

      fuck you she is mine!

    • 2pumpdump

      easy fella's…there's enough of her to go around.

    • https://thechive.com/ Paula_

      Gawd Dammit "Paula_" is already "taken". Does that mean I'm in a relationship already but forgot about that?

        just hire Liam Neeson…he'll get your name back

        • Hack

          Yes. He will get it back, but first she must get under the bed.

        • Natasha

          Just don't go skiing with him……………..OHHHHHHHHHHHH! B)

  • spoon chest

    I'll just go to a bar

    • Paul

      Seconded. turn off the computer and go outside. It will definit=ely give you a better chance to meet someone.

    • Johnnotleo

      but what about if one was so fat they couldn't get up the basement stairs?

      • Lawndart

        Then she can join the dating site and find someone have romantical basement sex with.

    • The Chivery

      Sorry; But going outside and having anything that(even vaguely) resembles having a life, will instantly nullify your Chive status.

      Chive on!

      • SteveJobs


        Chive it up!

  • Jack_LeMac

    Just a moment ladies, I need to prepare my bowtie and Binaca

    • BangNBoot

      i can see a bunch of chicks murdered and thrown in a ditch over this…..let the dating begin!

  • Da_Boz

    No Fuckin way! AND here goes the trend to turning into facebook….

    • KatieO

      You shut your mouth! haha That was my honest reaction to your comment. I do not want my chive to become a popularity creep-fest! 🙁

      • Paul

        Too late Katie. Have you read through a comment section lately?

      • Kit9

        you don't read the comments very much, do you?

  • SimonDPieman

    I wouldn't say it's downhill. It's a new branch to the Chive tree. This could be like when Apple decided to make a phone!

    Equally it could be like when George Lucas decided to make a prequel….

    • float

      No, this is in NO FUCKING WAY comparable to apple making a phone, dipshit…

      • SimonDPieman

        woah. someone got rubbed the wrong way up the grumpy tree.

        I was exaggerating for comic effect. sorry i made you all grumpy

        • Paul

          Steve Jobs…too soon man…too soon.

          • SteveJobs

            No Paul……too late…….too late…..

  • Conner

    Hmm.. Bad Gateway? Hmm…. Why am I not surprised.

    • guyabovemeisgay

      Hahahahaha………loser. Enjoy the CONTINUED lonliness

  • ChiveOnFromRSA

    "Not in the US?" button when signing up doesn't work. QQ

    • ...


    • AssClown

    • https://thechive.com/ Paula_

      Yep, so, no dating for me… yet…

      – the one you love to hate

  • SuperDanMan4290

    ill give it a chance once i get an updated photo…not to mention, just looking for some female friends before i go into anything serious.. or just some casual dating would be cool. Who knows


    • Dick Salad

      Is this your standard dating site intro?

      • SuperDanMan4290

        no…just saying whats on my mind.

        • Fuck

          You may want to avoid that in the future

          • SuperDanMan4290

            ok then ….. thanks

  • riley

    • guyabovemeisgay

      Let's see…afraid to talk to a girl in real life, cant get a date, no social skills……I bet this dating site will solve that overnight. All of these sloots posing in panties are prob just dying to meet you.

      • SavoyStud

        seriously dude? calling people gay as an insult went out of style in H.S. These days who cares how you meet, you still need game to close the deal. This is TheChive grow the fuck up

    • LickStick

      You're SO right Riley – and you sound SUPER dreamy and creamy.

  • bee.xo

    "We're sorry, but something went wrong." – yea, that's why I'm here in the first place.

    • Lokobo

  • Kyle

    Of course there is a bad gateway

  • Smuggler

    Oh…you were serious about this?

  • Tillman
