As you know, I love to talk about dating, regardless of my current relationship status. I consider myself to be pretty lucky to have snagged an amazing fella, but it wasn’t before I kissed some frogs and dipped in the pool of singles for more years than I’d like to remember. Dating is hard, but it’s nice when something comes along that connects people in a new and fun way.
I recently heard about a new dating iOS app called Swoon, a service that has bridged the gap between smartphone platforms (the first of its kind available for both Android and iPhone users. Finally Android users get some love, too!).
This app gives singles unprecedented access to a whole new portfolio of people to view and select as potential matches. With tens of thousands of active users in NYC alone, Swoon is changing the way singles meet new people.
As I’ve learned from working in the city over the years, no launch is official without a launch party, so to celebrate this awesome new app, the makers of Swoon are inviting singles and anyone ready to mingle to Haru Gramercy* for cocktails and apps this Tuesday, May 21st from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Guests will have the chance to meet and hang out with Swoon Men, VIP guests, and dating experts. I dunno what half of that means, but it sounds exciting!
Swooners can also enter for exclusive giveaways and prizes.
The rules: Upon arrival, you must download the app as admission into the happy hour. This mobile app will help you find matches nearby (hello! That cutie standing at the bar right NEXT to you!). This service is completely anonymous until there is a mutual match. Then presumably you grab that cozy table tucked away in the corner and you laugh and dance the night away. You crazy kids, you.
To find out more information visit the Swoon app. Join in on the conversation happening that night and leading up to the event by using the hashtag #SwoonUpNYC.
*Haru Gramercy is located at 220 Park Ave. S (at the corner of E 18th St.).
