Goth and and dating
Many Goths dress in fetish or BDSM-inspired styles for a night out at the club (for example: PVC dresses, spiked collars, wrist shackles, 'dominatrix' boots, stockings and suspenders).Because a Goth club is primarily a place to dance, listen to music, see and be seen, rather than to hook up (unless it's a speed-dating night, OBVIOUSLY), this is considered a fashion statement rather than an advertisement of one's preferences, and therefore not an indicator that the person wishes to be touched or engage in certain activities.
NOTE: as pointed out by a commentor, just because a club is primarily a place to dance rather than to hook up DOES NOT MEAN that hooking up doesn't happen. However, I feel that this is something true for all boozy nightclubs and not just the ones with the fog machines.

Maybe you enjoy rocking a black leather look with chains dangling by your side, and the average, straight-laced dating world just can’t handle how hardcore you are. While the sheep collect on popular dating websites, you can mix and mingle on a dating site for alternative people.
Match has more than 23.5 million members, and you can narrow down your dating preferences as much as you want, including musical interests and lifestyle habits.
This post covers some of the ins-and-outs (oo-er, Matron) of Gothy relationships; mostly useful, perhaps, from a non-Goth's perspective.
