Luv Byrd functions similarly to other dating sites, with potential matches selected by Luv Byrd displayed based on similar interests and age. The site hosted chairlift speed-dating at Loveland ski area this winter, pairing potential mates for a ride up the mountain and the option to ride down together (swipe right), or solo (swipe left).
While the site hosts extreme outdoors men and women who ice climb, fat-bike, and hang glide, it also recognizes (and supports) “patio lounging,” as well as “sledding around like a kid” and “building a snowman” as relationship-starting material.
Check out Luv Byrd – especially if you’re in Colorado – to start finding outdoors love.

Cilla Black, former host of Blind Date, had been announced as host for the show.
According to the Daily Mail, the show would have involved one person picking out their date out of three contestants.
The three suitors must 'hide' behind a computer generated avatar (alter ego).
