If you are a regular follower of My Pixie Blog, then you know that I have spent the last few weeks on Match.com. Part social experiment/part sincere interest in clicking with someone in the digital age, my efforts have not been terribly successful. I have decided not to renew my subscription when my three-month trial runs it’s course.
I’m a little tired of kissing frogs, to be perfectly honest.
So it was an interesting turn of events when I was asked to write a post on a new dating site. I found myself having yet another panic attack; the kind that only comes from “putting myself out there.” Did I really want to subject myself to a new school of fish with the same boring profiles?
I was reluctant until I clicked on the link and saw for myself.
HowAboutWe.com is a new service that infuses some fun and romance into the dating scene. Users are asked to describe their perfect date and if a suitor is interested, away they go to see if they are a match. I was particularly impressed with the creative dates some of the men came up with and I think this might be the perfect site for those of us who suffer from first-date jitters.
Why sit in uncomfortably high chairs at a loud and crowded bar when you can take your date to an aquarium? Are you the adventurous type? Perhaps trapeze school is just for you! Or how about signing up for a cooking class? These are just some of the dates I saw mentioned and they left me with a better understanding of who these men are.
After some thought, I think my ideal date would consist of dinner at Red Bamboo (my favorite vegetarian restaurant in the city) followed by some music at Sullivan Hall. I’m holding on to hope that perhaps that I can find my prince after all.
