Dating outside the box

You can't join with oppositesconnect.com just year"Wilson hopes to have the site up and running in about a month. If you join the site's Facebook page as a fan now, though, you'll be afforded a free lifetime membership.

Wilson's goal is to have the site become a pay service like many other sites on the Web.

In addition to a database of personal ads, the site will offer a Rivals Room, where users can create groups about their favorite things that can be matched up with opposing groups (Yankees and Red Sox fan groups, for example). The groups can interact, and the site will update you on members of rivaling rooms in your area.

Similarly, a weekly poll on hot button issues will show you local opposites.

Oppositesconnect will be a nationwide service, though Wilson plans to base any physical gatherings and dating events here in the Capital District. He says keeping membership open is a good thing, staying away from the micro-niche dating sites that focus on different religious or social groupings.

"We'd like to think we're combining the best elements of all of that," Wilson said.
