Find just what you're looking for on the following niche dating Web sites:
*TrekPassions.com is for sci-fi fans who want to "live long and prosper" together. Dating profiles, contact information and, of course, alien abduction film clips are all free.
There's also the option to join the affiliated MimePassions, PiratesPassions, VegetarianPassions, HorrorPassions and GunLoversPassions.
*BikerKiss.com asks members what brand of motorcycle they drive, and what brand they would prefer their match to have, too. That should weed out the Yamaha-yahoos from the serious lonely-heart-Harley-heads. Create a profile and receive e-mails free. Upgrade to a gold membership for $29.95 per month if you want to get in touch with someone.
*EquestrianCupid.com wrangles up cowboys and cowgirls with similar interests. Perhaps you're into breeding, while your matches have all been more interested in rodeo. Find out online first. Place your ad free, then upgrade for $29.95 per month to get full access.
*TheAtlasphere.com helps devotees of Ayn Rand's novels "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" find one another. Members, who are often unified in their love of the free market and disdain for selfless charity, can join free to browse other members' dating profiles. Subscribe for $9.95 a month if you want to check out photos or get contact information.
*WealthyMen.com, MillionaireMate.com and SugarDaddie.com join "rich men and the beautiful women who want to date them." These sites claim their members get more responses than any other dating site online -- go figure. You can join for a free trial or free limited membership but must upgrade for full benefits. Prices range from $12.50 to $44.95 per month.
