My Lucky Break
A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to try out the new dating site, HowAboutWe.com. Â My experience in the online dating world isn’t all that extensive, I’ve registered for a few sites in the past but didn’t have much luck. Â So, when the opportunity came my way to try out HowAboutWe.com, I was excited to explore a new option but didn’t hold much hope that it would be successful.
More Than a Profile and Picture
Instead of being excited, I procrastinated at the thought of filling out another boring profile and digging up a photo that made me look universally appealing. Â But, from the moment I began the process on HowAboutWe.com I realized that this wasn’t just another online dating site. Â This site was fun, unique and less pressured than the others. Â The site focuses on the date, not the dater. Â This concept attracts like-minded folks who have something in common (aka: a reason to connect). I love the idea that you’re not judging a person just by a photo and picture.
Simple, Fun and Exciting to Join
To sign-up was so easy. All that I had to do was note my preference of gender, age range and location. Â To create my profile, I uploaded a photo (which you can even do with the help of your Facebook account!) and answered a list of questions. Â the cool thing was that they weren’t the lame, ordinary questions that other sites use, such as â€˜Do you want children in the future?â€™ or â€˜What is your body type?â€™ Â These questions were interesting like, “What do you secretly want to be?â€™ and â€˜What movie have you watched the most times?â€™
The questions seemed odd at first but then I got to thinking, “If I could find a guy who loves spicy brown mustard as much as I do, it would be totally worth it!” Â After amusing myself with the process, the real fun began! Â I started posting date ideas surrounding activities that I really wanted to do. Â HowAboutWe.. go rock climbing? Or, Â HowAboutWe…shop for Halloween costumes together? Â HowAboutWe…take a helicopter around Manhattan? Â The sky is the limit (pun intended).
New Date Ideas = New People
What I love the most about the site is that my profile is always fresh and exciting. Â If it’s raining outside and I want to stay local, I can look for another dater who feels the same. Â When I’m feeling adventurous, I can find rock climbing partners or someone who wants to go running. Â Because new date ideas are revised soÂ often, it’s easy to find new people with common interests to mine. Â Right now, my profile says, HowAboutWe..go out for Sushi. Â As benign as that may sound, it worked and I have a date planned this week.
So for now, HowAboutWe….See What Happens.
