You can find people near you who either have beards, or are looking to meet people with beards.
"Bristlr also provides a beard-rating option, so you can find out how well a potential date's beard ranks compared to other bearded locals." The service was created by software developer John Kershaw.

If you’ve walked past someone in the street you can then flick the heart button and you can start to chat with them.We can probably expect to see more and more of these specific dating services lined up in the next couple of months.Be warned with Bristlr though, according to some users the service currently has vastly more bearded men than interested women. Instead of letting you cast the net wide and potentially drag in a few weirdos alongside the good catches, Hinge keeps it a little more reserved.Hinge only lets you connect up with your friends, friends of your friends or third-degree friends.The aim is, using your Facebook account, to give you a connection that you can work through in real life.We are still under the same ownership with the same mission.
