A Brilliant New Idea in Online Dating
If you’re single and looking to meet someone new, you probably know all about online dating. Love it or hate it – the pros and cons of online dating are well known.
On the pro side, online dating opens up a wide net to find other singles also looking to meet someone new. You get to see their likes, dislikes, pet peeves, and other interests.
But what you don’t see is the person. You can invest a lot of wasted time in the back and forth messaging and emails before the actual in-person meeting takes place. You take a big risk getting to know someone online, finally setting a place and time to meet, and then—if you don’t hit it off and plan to see each other again—starting all over again.
It’s a common problem and one that the new dating website, HowAboutWe.com has effectively solved.
At HowAboutWe.com the emphasis is placed on having a great first date. Rather than technology matching you up based on your profile, you post what you want to do on your first date and then find people that are into the same thing. It can be bike riding at the beach on a Saturday afternoon, seeing a foreign film, going to an art gallery, or exploring a flea-market on a Sunday morning.
Other members can respond to your date idea or you can respond to theirs. Then you work out the details and meet! The activity-based approach helps you get offline faster, so you can go on fun dates and see if you generate any in-person chemistry.
And, if the date doesn’t lead to romance – you have at least been out doing something you love with someone who appreciates it as well.
Here’s how it works:
Post your favorite date ideas, starting with “How about we…” and fill in the rest. You can check out other dating posts and user profiles and see if you and other members have common interests. Once you connect you can plan your date!
Every day, HowAboutWe.com sends you new dates from users who share your interests. They send the dates you post to users who might like them, and you can check out their profiles and message them to set up a date. The idea is to find people who like the same places and want to do the same things as you.
The website’s matching algorithm learns your preferences over time to better suit your interests. For example, if you always delete dessert dates, they’ll stop sending them to you.
HowAboutWe.com uses the latest technology to protect your privacy and lets you control who sees your information and how.
They also have a really cool HowAboutWe App available at the App Store. It features real-time access to thousands of nearby date ideas, and features sleek user profiles that include full-size photos, personal interests, and easy messaging. It’s great for the career-driven single who can only meet spontaneously.
So, if you are frustrated with the amount of time and effort needed on most online dating services – perhaps it’s time to have a little fun instead.
