A little old place where we can get together
[Update: unfortunately, this service was only made available for one day, April 1. The moment has now passed, but the memories live on.]
Substack was built to help independent publishing thrive, whether through writing, podcasting, or video. Over the years, we have been proud to provide Substackers with an ecosystem of services that includes legal support, design, editing, financing, Getty Images, workshops, and healthcare stipends.
But it has become clear that something is missing — something that can allow readers and writers on Substack to take back control of not only their minds, but also their hearts. And you should be as intentional with who you let into your heart as who you let into your inbox.
That’s why we are launching an exciting new service: LoveStack, the first and only matchmaking service based on your reading preferences. We believe that what you read matters, and when seeking a soulmate, reading preferences are a greater indicator of compatibility than taste in food or favorite sports teams.
The thousands of writers and millions of readers on Substack include physicists, poets, technologists, birdwatchers, geopolitical analysts, novelists, journalists, economists, and many more intellectual varieties to satiate the most discerning sapiosexual.
So whether you're a writer looking for a friend with a “simile” outlook, an editor who's “love[sic]” for a life partner, or a reader just looking to spend some time between the covers, LoveStack has a match for you.
To meet your match, visit mylovestack.com to answer a few basic questions, then click “Match Me” to find the Sackville-West to your Woolf, the James Baldwin to your Toni Morrison, or the Zelda to your Fitzgerald. You can decide whether to opt in to sharing your social handle or email for a match to try their best pickup line: what starts with one message could lead to a lifetime subscription.
On Substack, you already own your audience — and now, you can find someone to truly be yours. So try it out! Because, as we’ve always said, being independent doesn’t have to mean being alone.
