If you’re growing tired of the increasingly rational bent of dating sites like OKCupid and Match.com–it’s like these people don’t even care about the New World Order–might we suggest an alternative? If you’re looking for someone who thinks 9/11 truther conspiracies are the best pillow talk, you may want to join Dating Freedom Lovers, the online dating hub from scary person Alex Jones’ Infowars empire.

“Find and meet people that share a passion for liberty and freedom and are ready to start a relationship,” reads the public group. Users can sign up for a PlanetInfowars account, then use Dating Freedom Lovers to find someone who thinks vaccines are “a well-disguised, master-minded tool of population control.” Ohh, girl, I love when you talk dirty.

Lucky for us you can browse “featured members” without having a PlanetInfowars account, and there are some real gems. Take Tracy, whose claim to fame is starting a petition on whitehouse.gov. “Jesse Ventura 2016!” She might be a good match for, Daniel, who “woke up” after reading Ron Paul’s book The Revolution.

Sadly, there’s no function that allows you to filter by conspiracy–so if you are a 9/11 truther but believe only one shooter was involved in the JFK assassination plot, then you might have to do some digging (thanks, Obama).
