Last Friday, SingleEdition and Match.com hosted the “Mix Up Your Dating Life” event in NYC. There, Match.com representatives taught us how to find local singles, and — if you look closely enough — your perfect match. As a Match.com marriage success story, I was thrilled to attend.

Stir Events by Match.com

Match.com’s new Stir events are the perfect opportunity to find singles living in your area, bridging the gap between online dating and a more organic, face-to-face approach to finding love. Each Stir event is customized through group matching algorithms in terms of age, gender and interests so that singles will be attending events with like singles.

As the world’s largest dating site, Match.com isn’t just throwing these live singles events — they’re doing it on a massive scale.  This month alone, they’re throwing 189 events in more than 62 markets! Match.com has found so much success in their Stir events that they are expanding nationwide, planning to host 200 events each month by September.

Stir events range from large scale happy hours at local bars and venues, to more intimate, interest-based events such as cooking classes, wine and tequila tastings, dance lessons, bowling nights, rock climbing, and more!  The happy hour events are free and open to both registered and subscribed Match.com members, while the interest-based events are only free for Match.com subscribers.

If you’re a Match.com member, you can learn about and sign up for these events via Match.com under the “Events” header on the site.

We’ll be heading to our closest Stir event soon, so be sure to check back for a review from us!
