Even for the most adventurous, openminded individual, smoking still represents a dating dealbreaker.” TattCafe president Helen Siwak

Founding partners at Helen Siwak (avid non-smoker) and Vladimiros Xanthopoulos (smoker) know that no matter what your age, dating and relationships can be fantastic but at the same time, they can be very intense, confusing, and a minefield of decisions. Add to that societal opinions about body art and piercings, then add to that a smoking habit and you have someone who is more likely to strike out at online dating. Apparently the ‘tattoo lifestyle’ is not as permissive as many would think.

“Membership at has been growing steadily over the past few months with singles in Canada and the US being the most interested in meeting others who are devoted to the lifestyle associated with body art and culture,” says Helen Siwak, president of “but feedback from members and the Twitterverse shows that singles, no matter how openminded and adventuresome, will draw the line at smoking.”

Thus the creation of a smokers dating site is is the logical next step for these two entrepreneurs. An online dating site that allows you to expose yourself as a smoker of varying levels as just one small aspect of who you are and what you have to offer a potential partner and relationship. hopes to fill this niche for worldwide singles, who either indulge in the occasional cigarette, are in the process of quitting or cutting down, or unashamedly puff away and will stop smoking when they are lowered into the ground!
