Finally, a dating site that understands your love for Hemingway.   (Shutter Stock)

(Newser) – Tired of meeting up with a girl from only to discover—horrors!—she’s into Nicholas Sparks? Sign up for Alikewise, a dating site that matches you based on your taste in literature. It’s the latest in a string of niche dating sites like Cupidtino for Mac lovers, and was started by two friends—one of whom wanted to meet someone who’d read The Black Swan, Mashable reports.

Like a romantic version of, you can search for other users by typing in authors or book titles—and so far, it’s still free. But it’s not all based on love of reading: You can enter in information about your appearance, too, “because,” writes Lauren Indvik, “a common love of Shakespearean sonnets doesn’t ensure physical attraction.”
