5 Dating Tips

When I started online dating, I hadn’t been on a date for several years. Getting started was very difficult and to be honest I wasn’t sure where to begin. So, with that in mind, here are some tips to getting started:

First, Take Advantage of Online Dating
If you’re unwilling to give online dating a try, it is my opinion that you are only hurting your chances in today’s dating world.

If you are just starting to look into online dating, I would recommend a site like eHarmony or Chemistry.com. Why? These sites aren’t better than other sites but they remove much of the guess work for someone new to online dating. Other services will work well, too, but it is nice that these services provide specific steps to users throughout the process: from the first contact to the first date. Once you become more comfortable with online dating, moving to service like Match.com is great because you will have more control on who you can contact.

Be Patient
Many people become frustrated (or even give up) early on with online dating because they feel that they are not receiving enough responses. Frequently, the belief is that they are either not interesting or attractive or that they are doing something wrong. Generally, these beliefs are not true. The truth is that finding someone is still hard work even when using a service devoted dating. There is much more going on than just a lack of interest.

The short of it is this: just be patient, especially in the beginning. Once you get a date or two lined up, things will move along better. For me, if I had no dates at all, getting even one seemed to take forever. Once I had a few dates scheduled, though, finding more seemed easy.

Get Comfortable with Dating
In the beginning, date as often as you are able to by not being overly picky. If you’ve not dated for years, getting some quick dating experience will be very important. Any experience is good – even if you suspect the first date will be the last. Don’t convince yourself that you need to find your “soul mate” right out of the gate. As in all other areas of life, practicing will only improve your ability. It sounds very strange to suggest that someone practice dating but if you haven’t dated in a long time, chances are you will benefit. You might be lucky and find someone perfect for you immediately but even if not, you can still enjoy meeting people.

Looking back, I really complicated things for myself in the when I started dating online because I only wanted to date women who had every quality I was looking for. This meant I had very few dates and even on the dates I did have, I was stressed out of my mind. This resulted in my looking foolish on several occasions. If I would have been willing to treat dating as something fun instead of something that must be accomplished, I think I would faired far better.

Talk about you Dating Experiences
When I first started dating online, I kept it as quiet as I could because I was afraid of what people would think. When I eventually started sharing my experiences, many of my friends were suddenly interested in setting me up on dates. I quickly realized that most people love to play matchmaker. Keep this in mind as well: if you’ve been single for an extended period of time, those around you may not even realize you are back in the game. It is very unlikely that letting your friends know that you are dating will bring in any large number of dates, but even if it brings one additional date, that might be all you need.

Trust Your Gut
Some days it seems there are as many people offering dating advice as there are people looking for it. Much of this advice is good but there is plenty of bad advice out there too. So how do you tell the difference? First, anything that promises amazing results at amazing speeds probably won’t help at all. Second, even good advice won’t work for everyone since every situation is different. If you find advice that sounds like it would be horrible for you, chances are it would be. Reading dating advice can be very helpful but always make your own decisions.

For me, the advice that I ran into time and time again was that if I was shy (which I am) I would never have dating success. All the advice said you can either be confident or alone. I believed this for a long time. Even though it felt wrong, I became quite the actor on many dates. Eventually (and fortunately) I realized there was a flaw in this advice: shy is not the opposite of confident, shy is the opposite of out-going. As an example, I know plenty of people who exude quiet confidence. When I stopped trying to treat being shy and being confident as if they were mutually exclusive, I was able to be myself again. Almost over night I became more comfortable on my dates and my dating success took off. I now realize that one of the things that hurt my dating life the most, as strange as it sounds, was taking the advice that almost every expert seems to agree on.

Getting a Date Through Dating

Dating has evolved for many generations. In the past, dating is considered non-existent because the parents get to choose who their children’s life partners would be. But today, the concept of dating is widely accepted. Even the British Royal Family is opening to the idea that the next in-line to the throne can date and find a sensible and well-pedigreed life partner. In the past, Royals can only be married to Royals because they were not given any choice but to abide by the law. Today, you can simply get a date by reading some online dating reviews and clicking on a button to send your potential date a message or two.

So what are the ways to acquire a date? One of the most basic forms in finding a date is by having your friends or relatives set you up on a blind date with someone they know who might just click with you. Almost everyone tried this kind of dating experience and about fifteen percent of all relationships are formed from blind dates. Blind dates can be a stepping stone in a relationship if both parties have a lot of things in common.

Another form of dating can be acquired by meeting someone new at a party, club, bar, church, park, and any other place where you can meet new people. This is the old-school dating kind where you should walk up to the guy or girl you never met before and introduce yourself, get their contact information, and call them for your scheduled meet up. The success of this dating kind will depend on how you click with your date. Most of the first dates become like the question and answer phase where you just sit there and wait to be interrogated until it’s your turn to ask the question.

The next form of dating is the so called group dates. This is like a mix up of old-fashioned dates and blind dates because each party will either have to bring along some of his buds or her girlfriends to the meeting place. They will meet up for some food and drinks. If there are only two people in each party, then it’s called a double date. The only difference with group dates or double dates from the aforementioned dating types is the ambiance of the atmosphere. With group dates or double dates, the atmosphere is lighter and less congested as compared to blind dates and old-fashioned dates.

With the fast paced modern world, some of the dating experts came up with the idea of speed dating. This is fast-paced blind dating scene where singles will have to register for the event and sit on tables. The single men will have to rotate around the tables where women are sitting and go on a date with each one of them for a minimum of three minutes to a maximum of five minutes, depending on the speed dating regulations. Since this is a fast paced dating, each single will have to ask questions they’d like to know from their date within the allotted time period. When the whistle is blown, they will have to swap for their next date in line.

If you are not fond of the awkward silences and the question and answer portion of all the aforementioned dating types, perhaps you are likely to be fond with online dating. This form of dating is practically revolving around the internet for more than a decade and has produced lots of memorable encounters and relationships. By using online dating reviews, you will be able to get to know the other person before going out on a real date. However, before joining just any other online dating site out there, you should carefully know what your needs are and then decide which dating site to join.

Christian Dating Advice and the Largest Date Created by Christians

Christian dating should be seen as the first few steps on the road to Christian marriage. Indeed this is how most Christians do see dating. Of course, this doesn’t mean planning the wedding from the first date but it does mean dating with the idea of Christian marriage in mind. Which is simply a scary way of saying that when you date as a Christian you go on that date open to the idea that this person could be the one with whom you fall in love and marry. This is essentially what Christian dating is, it is dating with marriage in mind. If you go out on a date with someone without being open to the possibility of falling in love then you are certainly on a date but for sure not a Christian date! This leads us on to the biggest Christian dating mistake.

Christian dating mistake #1 Not dating with romance in mind

The biggest dating mistake made by many Christians is that they are not going on Christian dates at all. This doesn’t mean that you are not going to Christian places or doing Christian activities, or even that you’re not dating other Christians. It means that you are making the mistake of thinking that simply being a Christian and having a date equals Christian dating. This is not so. The date itself must be within the framework of Christian ethical standards – how Christians treat other people. Your date should not be with you simply because they are nice to look at, or nice to be seen with. Nor should your date be simply company on an otherwise lonely night.

Many Christians make the mistake of asking someone out on a romantic date when all they really want is someone to go out with as a friend. This leads to obvious complications when you have one person viewing the other as a potential friend, whilst being viewed by them as a potential husband or wife. Christians make this mistake all the time due to the lack of sexual pressure in Christian dating. Knowing that sex is out of the question and with strict personal rules on kissing and other acts of intimacy, it is easy to find yourself in ‘friend mode’ rather than viewing your date as a potential spouse. Now of course a husband and wife are friends, I am in no way suggesting otherwise, but theirs is a special kind of friendship built on a foundation of romantic love.

Dating with marriage in mind means thinking of your date, right from the first date, as someone with whom you could build a romantic, loving friendship with that results in marriage. It doesn’t mean working out the names of your future children five minutes into the first date! Christian dates should be romantic and marriage-minded from the outset.

What is the difference between Christian dating and non-Christian dating? To most people the answer lies in what you do on that date. It’s an easy one to answer. Christians are not going to have sex on the date and may even choose not to kiss. Now ask yourself the difference between Christian dating and two people going out as friends, for a meal or to catch a show? The answer lies in how the couple view each other. The friends, see each other as friends and treat each other accordingly. The dating couple should be viewing each other as dates, not simply as friends. Imagine two friends, a man and a women, going out for a meal to catch up on old times but during the meal the man starts seeing his friend as a date. Unless she starts seeing him as a date the evening is going to end up in upset. Now imagine, a Christian couple on a date but while she sees her date as a date, he sees her as a friend – this evening too will end in upset.

To avoid the biggest dating mistake made by Christians, simply make sure you are going on a Christian date. Not a night out with a friend but a date. When you consider asking someone out on a date, ask yourself first if you could see yourself in a romantic relationship with this person. Don’t be one of those Christians who find someone they like as a friend and ask them out on a date (knowing there will be no sexual pressure) with the idea that at ‘some’ time in the future things ‘may’ get romantic. Christians know that romance doesn’t mean sex but dating should mean romance – right from the first date.

Dating Sites and Steps to Get the Right Date

Often, the uncertain feeling of whether there will be a second date or not can test your nerves unless of course you are into one date thing. Singles everyday are turning to online singles dating sites because they offer a huge database of local singles and advanced search and communication tools making dating easy and this is all done without leaving your computer, point, click and communicate. These following tips can help you transform that first date into a second date. Many singles find that using online dating sites to find a date for this weekend or something more long term is an easy and exciting way to get that all important date. Of course, there is no one specific method that works for everyone but we believe these tips will help you achieve first date success and that should lead to getting a second date.

First Date Tip #1: Just relax and have fun with your date -this will put your date at ease

No matter if you are an experienced savvy dater, first dates can test your nerves but it is so important to just have fun and gear your conversations to finding some of the things you both like and dislike and work towards finding common ground as this will help the both of you to relax and enjoy your first date together. Early in the date be sure to make the important eye contact while engaging in your conversations, this gives the feeling to your date that you are interested and will keep them from clamming up. Communication is imperative in dating and relationships in general. Not quizzing them about their relationships history is important will go a long way in making your date more comfortable with you.

First Date Tip #2: Leave your date with a burning desire for a second date

Typically, it might not be a good idea to let your date go to far physically on that first date, first dates more often than not are for getting to know each other on subjects such as did you grow in the area, where did you attend school or college at, what are your personal or career goals and whatever other type of things your date may really passionate about. Other questions about their past relationship history is should be in your second date and beyond as this can really be a touch and go subject and could turn a first date into a disaster. The first date is not meant to uncover their entire life history, instead more of a synopsis outlining your highlights and accomplishments and the amazing life you have so that the other person can decide if they want to know more and whether they would want to be a part of your life or not. Ultimately, the key to getting a second date is to have fun on the first date.

Exciting Dating Ideas for Afternoon

Need some Fun Date Ideas? You’ve come to the right place. A lot of the fun dating ideas listed below are not recommended as a first date unless you know the person very well or have known them for a long time. But if you have had a few dates and want to really impress, the list below should be just what your looking for!

It is important to do your research before deciding on a date location or activity, consider the following factors before making your choice:

• What do they like to do in their spare time?
• Have they mentioned how they’ve always wanted to do something but just haven’t got round to it?
• What do you think they would like to do as a date?
• Are they adventurous? If yes, pick something with a sense of adventure!
• Are they shy or outgoing? If shy, opt for a date where it will just be the two of you with no interruptions or other people around. (Not recommended for the first or second date with a woman as you have not built up enough trust yet)

Fun Date Ideas – Day Time

A Unique Restaurant

Go for a restaurant with a relaxed environment, great ambience and serving great food. Do an internet search for restaurant reviews on restaurants in your area.

A Coffee shop

There’s no better way to have a good chat and to get to know someone than over a drink in a relaxed setting.

A Stylish Café

An excellent idea is to take your date to a stylish Café for a drink or lunch and get to know one another.

The Beach

My favourite choice. Women in particular love to take a walk on the beach, especially at sun set (top tip – research the sun set time!)

A Walk in the Park (with picnic optional)

This is good as a first date idea. Take your date for a walk in the park, when you find a nice spot, get out the blanket and sit down and relax; talk, get to know one another. For lunch, either pack a picnic or go into a local restaurant to really finish the date on a good note.

A Museum

This can be a great fun date idea, especially if they are an acedemic type and have told you that they enjoy museums. But you must hit the right topic with your date or they could be bored stiff!

A Picnic

You can never go wrong with a picnic, but you must find out what your date likes to eat beforehand or you could be eating alone. Don’t forget the strawberries and cream; )

A Festival

This is usually a great fun dating idea for both of you as there will be music to suit all tastes, food, drink, shopping and all sorts of other wacky and wonderful things!

An Amusement Park

Fun, adrenaline packed with nearly everything you need for a good day out. But be careful with this choice as not everyone likes amusement parks! Some people think they are for kids.

A Shopping Trip

Ask her to help you pick out a new shirt etc, this forms a good bond and implants ‘partner patterns’
between the pair of you.

Fun Date Ideas – Something Adventurous!

This is where the list gets a little crazy, be careful with these choices as you need to be sure that your date will enjoy it, adventurous dates are certainly not for everyone and should generally not be chosen as a first date idea but they will make excellent fun date ideas.

A Hot Air Balloon ride (with picnic)

The absolute perfect date for a lot of people particularly daters over 30. This just shouts peacefulness, grace and elegance, you cannot fail to be impressed by this!

Paintballing

High energy, adrenaline and action packed day out, it’s great fun but be warned – it hurts when you get hit. This is definitely not for everyone and certainly not for girly girls.

Laser Tag

Although it is just a game, you can’t help but really get into this! It’s great fun and can make a good day or night out if you can overlook all the spotty kids running around like they are Rambo on a do or die mission.

Skiing

Great fun for all who partake in this sport, guaranteed to be a good day out.

Kayaking

Great fun dating idea and very ‘bonding’ if it just the two of you out on the river or lake. Try to plan a route with lots of beautiful scenery and things to see. Get a double kayak for extra bonding.

White Water rafting

Now this is really adrenaline packed! Not for the faint hearted or a first date that’s for sure!

Go-Karting

This can be great fun and I have seen a lot of women doing this and really enjoying themselves, but you have to consider the safety issues when selecting this option as a lot of inexperienced riders get injured (including me and I’m experienced!)

Scuba Diving

If your date has a diving qualification then this is a must for a date at some stage. The bonding during this activity is so strong as you are both there to take care of one another.

Helicopter Ride

Excellent fun date idea and guaranteed to put a smile on your dates face, I have taken a date on a helicopter ride over the mountains before and I have never seen such a glow from her afterwards.

Mountain Biking

Great fun! It is better to go with a reputable company and let them organize the day for you as this will include bike hire, equipment (inc helmet), insurance and a fun route! But if you both have the bikes equipment and no how, then… enjoy.

Quad Biking

Excellent fun but this can be dangerous, certainly not a good first date idea. Choose an off road route if your date seems adventurous and experienced and a simple flat route if they are a bit nervous and have never been on a quad before. Be extra careful if you choose this option as there are a lot of injuries from this activity each year.

Caving

If your date is an outdoors and adventurous person then this will make for a good date! Always check the safety aspects before trekking off into the unknown and make sure you have at least the basic safety equipment.

Paragliding

Exhilarating experience, you appreciate how it feels to be a bird just soaring high above without a care in the world.

Wakeboarding

You’ve all seen it in the movies but most people have never done this activity. It involves standing on a board in the water whilst hanging on to a rope and being pulled by a boat! Find out if your date can swim first and make sure they are not afraid of water.

Sky Diving

The ultimate fun dating idea and most adrenaline packed activity you can possibly do besides a bungy jump. This is both exhilarating and scary at the same time. Everyone should do this once in their life.

6 Tips To Help You Date With Professionals

For people on a budget, there are free dating sites like plentyoffish and okCupid. For those interested in paying a bit more, there are paid sites like Lavalife and Match.com. And for those who are short on time and willing to pay for the privilege of saving some of that time, there are professional dating services. Designed to be one-stop-shops for people looking for a relationship, professional dating services take care of every aspect of setting up date. They find out what you’re looking for in a mate, search for that kind of person, coordinate your schedules, set up the date… and generally coordinate everything so that all you have to do is show up. It’s not for everyone, and it’s expensive, but it’s also very convenient. Over the next few days I’ll go over some advice to help you get the most for your money if you choose to seek out a professional dating service.

1. Take your time and choose wisely.

Dating services stand out as an option for meeting people for many reasons. One of them is the simple fact that they can be pricey. For that reason, take your time and look at all the agencies out there before choosing one and shelling out your hard-earned cash. A reputable agency should take the time to work with you on a one-to-one basis, so you should think about how you’d like to work and choose a provider accordingly. For example, do you prefer lunch dates during the week, or weekend dinner dates? Also, you should think about the kind of person you’re looking for. Agencies have a certain clientele, so make sure that your needs match what they can offer. Spending a lot of time considering these factors upfront will save you a lot of headaches – and money – in the long run.

2. Set yourself a budget before starting.

Once you’ve chosen some dating services that you think are a good fit, starting comparing prices. While you shouldn’t shy away from a interesting option just because it’s a bit more expensive than the others, you definitely want to have a budget in mind. This budget should be a kind of “experimentation” budget. In other words, ask yourself how much you’re willing to “lose” in order to experiment with a dating service. While you should never assume the worst, you have to assume that you’re going to have to spend some money before you find your soulmate. By setting yourself a budget, you’ll become more comfortable with spending a bit of cash on a dating service, and you’ll also set yourself a point at which you’ll stop if it just isn’t working for you.

3. Write down a description of what you’re looking for in a soulmate.

The first step of a starting with a dating service is an interview where you’ll be asked questions about yourself, and what you’re looking for. You want to make the most of the interview, because that’s how the dating service will search for singles for you. So it’s a good idea to write down what you’re looking for before you begin. By taking the time to really think about what your ideal date would be like, and then writing it down, you’re going to paint a clearer picture of what you actually want in a soulmate. The better this picture is – and the closer it is to what you NEED in partner, and not what you WANT in one – the better your dates will be.

4. Get some quality face-time with a prospective service provider.

One of the great things about dating services is that you get something which is getting very rare these days: quality face-to-face time with someone (or at least, phone-to-phone time). This face-to-face time usually takes the form of an “interview,” where the dating service gets to know what you’re looking for. Make sure to squeeze all you can from this interview. Personalized service is great, so don’t let yourself be rushed at any point. Answer all the questions they have for you truthfully, but also, ask them anything you want. Take your time. Get their advice. You never know what you may learn, and the more they know about you, the better your matches will be.

5. You’re the boss, so make sure they do the work for you.

A dating service is just that: a service. You’re paying someone to look for potential matches for you – so make sure they look hard. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, to be critical of matches they’ve made, to give them constructive feedback, and to do anything else that you feel will help them find great dates for you… and that will make your life a little easier. Remember, a dating service can be a great time saver if you put the onus on them to work hard for you. And they’re not just there to listen: so don’t forget to ask questions. Pick their brains and squeeze them for everything they’ve got… it’s one of the nice perks of hiring a dating service.

6. Be upfront about the fact that you’re using a dating service.

Don’t be shy about the fact that you’re using a dating service, either with the people you meet on that service, or with your friends or family. Instead, be proud of the fact that you’re taking matters into your own hands, and taking a very proactive approach to meeting people. By taking this position, you’ll come across as being confident, instead of being insecure. This will help you on the dates you get through your service: by being upfront and confident about the fact that you’re using a dating service, you’ll put your date (who may be insecure about it) at ease, and instantly break the ice. Have fun with it. Laugh about it. It’ll make your date that much more pleasant.

Dating Can be Dangerous to Your Health!

Online Dating has become the #1 industry on the internet and it is growing increasingly popular and accepted each and every day. There are cereal daters, tepid daters, repeat daters, and short term daters. Whichever category you fall into, I have to warn you to be careful. There are a couple of very important things you must know bout the online dating universe and the effects it can have on your life. Online dating can be hazardous to your health.

1) Dating Online ruins your personal life. Have you noticed the finer things in life are usually shared with family or close friends? If you online date, you’ll have less time for these same family and friends, which is unhealthy. These joys, the finer things, are what make us happy. As there are only so many hours in a day to see family and friends and experience these healthy joys, the time online dating will consume can be damaging. Okay, you want to try online dating, but at what personal cost? Online dating is addictive and easy. Once you start, you’re not going to stop until you find your “perfect match.” Pretty soon you’ll spend so much time dating that you’ll never see your family or friends. If this happens you’ll lack “happy connectivity” in your life, which can lead to many health concerns such as depression.

2) Dating Online can give you an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). Those who date online meet an abundance of interesting and attractive people. The unfortunate thing is that when two interested people go on a “date” it invariably leads to sex. While sex is good and natural between two human beings who are interested and attracted to one another, online dating can open the door to serious problems. Online dating brings the opportunity-to-close ratio for sex into overdrive. The more sex you have, the more likely you are to catch a sexually transmitted disease. Be careful! STD’s can lead to death if you’re not careful. If STD’s don’t scare you, how about becoming a Sexaholic? Or even, a Sexaholic with a non curable STD? Scary stuff.

3) Dating Online can lead to bankruptcy. Plain and simple, dating is really expensive. Sushi restaurants, flowers, Godiva chocolates, fancy clothes, all of these things are expensive. A decent first date at minimum costs at least $30. I know some guys who receive 20 emails a day from interested and attractive women. Some women I know receive close to 200 a day! Lets say my guy friend who gets 20 emails a day decided to go on a date with these 20 interested people. He is a gentleman, so he always pays. At $30 a night done 20 times, his out of pocket cost is $600. What if he went out with all the women who were interested over the course of just one week? He’d be spending $4,200 a week!! That’s $16,800 a month, or $201,600 a year! Yuck! Be careful. Even though he met all these women on a free online dating website, dating is expensive and at $201,600 a year, he’ll file for bankruptcy in no time.

4) Dating Online can lead to death. In this day and age, everybody is trying to be different and stand out to be memorable. This is the same for dating. Everybody is looking for that “unique” date idea that will be fun, engaging, original and ultimately make your potential match melt and fall in love with you. Dating is a game as old as time itself. There aren’t many things humans have not done yet. We’ve all been to dinner, we’ve all been to movies and we’ve all been bowling. What else is there? In our attempt to be original with each and every date, we start doing stupid things like sky diving. What if the parachute doesn’t open? Maybe you go Camping. What if you get eaten by a bear? Maybe you go sailing. What if the boat capsizes and your drown? Meeting all these people through online dating and trying to be something original in their life is risky. If you’re not careful, online dating can lead to death.

5) Dating Online can get your butt kicked. As we date online, we always meet new people and we cannot help but to compare the new date to the last. Each time we date, we judge, we decide what we like or don’t like them move on. In short, we upgrade. Because it is easy to meet so many quality people through online dating, upgrading is done quickly and efficiently. Eventually, after we’ve run through the gambit of the online dating world, we will decide to settle with someone we believed to be the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be! Congratulations. Problem is, because you have the best, and because all people are on the same mission for you as the best, you’ve set yourself up for disaster. Every person on the planet is going to be interested in your chosen mate, so be prepared for bar fights, arguments and cussing matches. The male tendency to dominate and compete will ultimately ruin your relationship, but along the way you’ll have to do a lot of ass kicking and accept a couple of beatings. This is natural law and order and it cannot be avoided. Only online date if you’re prepared to get your ass kicked.

In conclusion, Online Dating can be a dangerous game. If you want to live a simple, ignorant and petty life with few friends and no adventure, DO NOT online date. Online dating will ruin all these hopes and dreams of your simple life. Online dating is ONLY for the adventurous, inspired and modern individual looking to expand, grow and enrich their life with moments and memories you cannot write about, only experience, and enjoy (hopefully!).

This article was inspired by fun to highlight some of the benefits of dating online in a fun and humorous way. Meeting people online through a website designed for dating is a gift that technology has given us. Adapt, experiment and harness the benefits that you can only get from a free online dating website.

Unlocking the Date Back on Dating

It’s been a long time since Brian Schechter and Aaron Schildkrout carried their elementary school dance parties. After 20 years of talking about “creating something that would shatter conventions and erect something way better”, these two childhood best friends came up with their best idea so far: HowAboutWe, an exciting and fun new way of dating.

In a time when dating site clones pop up in the hundreds, HowAboutWe.com introduces a different approach: instead of screening through profiles, you chose people based on their date ideas using a “How about we…” template. Members still fill out profiles but the action is all about the proposed dates. Can it get better than that?

By the time this article went out, these were the most popular dates on the site:

– How about we… have dinner at an underground supper club led by a secret famous chef.

– How about we… check out a scavenger hunt at the Met.

– How about we… walk the High Line.

– How about we… go for a walk, sit in Union Square and watch people.

I sent Brian a set of questions and here is what he has to say.

How did you get started and what inspired the idea of a dating site based on proposed dates?

We’ve been best friends most of our lives. We’re talking kindergarten on. And we always talked about creating something that would shatter conventions and erect something way better – way more real and way more fun. The range of our projects spans 20 years – from elementary school dance parties to lesson plans for high school students; we were both teachers after college. We got started with HowAboutWe last August (2009). We had decided we wanted to build a big business that would make people’s lives better and help people to do what they already want to do. We had tons of ideas but HowAboutWe was the best one. We were both single and the second we had the idea it was obvious that a site based around the dates people would want to go on would be the type of site we’d actually want to use.

What is HowAboutWe?

HowAboutWe is about putting the date back in dating. You say “How about we…” and fill in the dots with dates you’d have fun going on. Magical dates. Simple dates. Wild dates. Lovely dates. Each day we’ll send you new dates that match your interests. And, of course, we’ll send the dates you propose to people who might like them. Then you can check out people’s profiles, message each other, and go out. We think people are at their best when they’re doing things they really like to do. That’s what HowAboutWe is all about.

What’s the age range and the men/women ratio?

24-44-ish…45/65-ish.

What’s the best way to get a date on HowAboutWe?

Propose dates. Propose the dates you want to go on.

What’s the best way to NOT get a date on HowAboutWe?

Taking it too seriously.

What have you learned so far?

People are far more game for exploration, discovery and honesty than we had imagined.

Have you found any tendencies in both, men and women when proposing dates?

Women are more creative, have better vocabularies and are more specific.

You are based in New York. Is HowAboutWe intended for NY or US only?

No, we plan to grow on a national scale. We imply wanted to create a new kind of dating site where members could demonstrate who they are, not with personal essays and awkward messages, but by proposing dates that begin with the words: “How about we….”. We are beginning to expand.

How are you promoting the site?

We’re basically focused on creating an amazing site. The users of HowAboutWe tell their friends about it. Those friends tell their friends. That’s been the driving force behind our growth so far.

How do you plan to make money?

The site is a subscription service. People pay when they begin composing messages to other users.

How does a new dating site compete with the already established dating sites giants in a saturated market?

By having a good idea for making it different.

Are there any stories on the site you want to share?

One of our users, Lucinda, volunteered to go on 10 HowAboutWe dates…and write about each one. She recently dished out on one of her dates for our Date Report which is pretty comical and gives you a glimpse into the trials and tribulations of NYC dating.

As Lucinda puts it, “The best part of dating in New York is the mystery and the idea that anything can happen, love can find you anywhere.”

So be sure to propose a good date (hint: the dates that get the most responses seem to be ones that have a bit of personality), check your grammar since spelling mistakes are a huge deal breaker and be ready to go out and have fun.
