Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to come out of hibernation (I’m pretty sure the sun was out for all of five minutes yesterday, so we’re making progress). I can’t possibly be the only one feeling a bit frisky this time of year. There is just something to be said about finding a romantic partner to enjoy outdoor activities with once the snow has melted and the sun finally makes her long-awaited appearance. With summer concerts to look forward to, happy hours on rooftops, and all sorts of romantic activities everywhere you turn (movie nights under the stars, anyone?), now is the time to shut the computer and get our butts off the couch.
The folks behind HowAboutWe.com have devised a pretty simple concept that adds some excitement to the many lackluster online dating sites out there these days. Members are asked to provide their idea of the perfect first date, and if someone else is interested in participating in the same activity, away they run into the sunset to see if they are a match. The more specific you are, the more likely it will be that you will find a spring fling in no time.
So, what would be my ideal first date? So glad you asked!
I’d love to hang out on the wooden benches of a beer garden and follow up with some live music of sorts. Or maybe we can grab a cup of coffee and listen to some local musicians in Washington Square Park. (As an aside, members at HAW who suggest a date in two parts have a much higher success rate).
When I wrote my last post about this site, I convinced my buddy Brian to join. Here is what he has to say:
“What makes HowAboutWe.com work so well is taking away what makes other dating sites ineffective: it promotes activity. I was on Match, Chemistry, and eHarmony for a total of three years, and within those three years I only managed to land 4-5 dates. Within one month of HowAboutWe.com, that number was shattered with a total of 7 different dates in one month. All it takes is having a little imagination to post awesome date ideas and you are introduced to a dating site that, above all else, actually works.”

So, ladies… how about we put on our big girl panties and start asking some of these boys out on dates?
