GREEN BAY – Green Bay Packers fans looking for love have a new way to find a potential date – or a mate – that is also a Packer Backer.
It’s called greenbaypackerslovers.com – a website that bills itself as a place to help cheeseheads find cheesehead love.
It’s an allegiance that is a must for 24-year-old Derek Miskoski.
“They have to be a Packer fan,” said Miskoski, in-between tossing pies at Polito’s Pizza in Green Bay.
“Better than sitting at a desk all day.”
When the Stevens Point native isn’t on the job serving up pizza, Miskoski says he uses a smartphone app to go on dates.
“Me and some of my friends are on Tinder, for sport,” said Miskoski, “Talking to people, meeting people. Not like traditional dating sites where they match you up.”
“Would you use a Packers-only dating website?” FOX 11’s Bill Miston asked Dan Mc Allister. “Probably not,” he replied.
A well-played answer from the soon-to-be-married Little Suamico man. But – hypothetically – if Mc Allister were still on the market, he still wouldn’t use the site, unless.
“If the women were all, 100-percent, guaranteed to go fishing, then I would definitely be on that website.”
Where can true love be found?
In order to get to the bottom of the story and get some cold hard facts about dating and relationships, there is one place in Green Bay that has that kind of knowledge: the ladies at Furs of Distinction.
“I think everybody in this world needs to have true love,” said Jill Watzka,
Packers fan Jill Watzka found her any-team-but-the-Packers husband 19-years ago in Luxemburg – old-school style.
“We met at a stock-car racetrack,” said Watzka. “Racing is my passion.”
So, as far as the website is concerned?
“If that’s truly what’s important to you, in your heart, and that’s really your passion, then I think that website is the place for you to find true love,” said Watzka.
Greenbaypackerslovers.com already has roughly 600 users, and counting. The site also has an interesting number of profiles from the South Pacific island Kingdom of Tonga?
Miskoski has one theory.
“That just means (the Packers) have a wide fan base and that Tonga has the most fans outside Wisconsin.”
Because everything you see on the Internet is true.
Online dating safety
On a serious note – law enforcement says to be careful on dating websites. Don’t give out any personal information and if you do decide to connect with someone from a website, bring a friend along and meet in a public place. Not everyone is Wisconsin-nice.
