MatchMade Scholarship: Connecting the Children of Match Couples to an Education

Cupid's Pulse Article: MatchMade Scholarship: Connecting the Children of Match Couples to an Education

This post is sponsored by Match.com.

By Lori Bizzoco and Liz Kim

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the — well, you know the rest. Match.com was launched in 1995, and since then, it has become one of the largest online dating sites in the world. With all those success stories, can you guess how many babies have been “made” through Match.com connections? Over 1 million! With this thought in mind, Match.com is excited to launch their annual scholarship program, MatchMade Scholarships. One lucky winner will receive $50,000 towards their first year of college, and their parents will win $5,000 towards a MatchMade Getaway.

For me, MatchMade hits particularly close to home. I met my husband Drew on Match.com in 2003. He didn’t fit my “type,” and after our first date, I never called him back — but if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Drew messaged me for the second time in 2006, and I decided to give him another chance. Nine weeks later, during a whirlwind Valentine’s Day trip to Mexico, Drew proposed to me on the beach. After nearly seven years, we are still happily married and have two beautiful daughters, ages 3 and 5.

As parents, Drew and I understand that it’s never too early to start thinking about your child’s future. College tuitions are more expensive than ever, and Match.com is here to help. For nearly 20 years, happy couples have been sharing their Match.com stories, and now the site wants to hear from your kids. The rules are simple: Children between the ages of 13-20 are asked to creatively tell their parents’ love story (who met on Match.com, of course) in a 1-2 minute video.

Need some inspiration? Check out MatchMade’s Launch video on what happens when you ask kids about life and love. These children aren’t afraid to tell it like it is, and that’s exactly what Match.com wants from the contest entries. Beginning May 5th through June 30th, kids can submit their video creations via MatchMade’s website. Whether side-splittingly hilarious or grab-the-tissues moving, only the most creative video will win.

Up to 10 finalists will be chosen in July, and on August 18th, their fate will be in the public’s hands. On September 1st, the video with the highest number of shares will be announced, and the winner will receive a grand prize of $50,000 towards their first year of college. Of course, Match.com hasn’t forgotten about the parents: They will receive $5,000 towards a MatchMade getaway!

From first emails to walking down the aisle, Match.com wants to hear every heartfelt love story of couples who met on the site. Once you make the video, share it using #MatchMade — the more shares you get, the greater your chance of taking home the grand prize. Now, go grab your camera and get creative!

Please visit MatchMade for all of the rules and to enter the contest. Good luck!

Blogger Perez Hilton Talks About Being a Single Celebrity Parent, Online Dating, and His Recent Move to New York

Posted In: Celebrity Interviews, Dating Advice Videos, Love, Videos

Interview by Lori Bizzoco. Video by Damian Kolodiy.

At the Match.com Singles in America event, CupidsPulse.com Executive Editor Lori Bizzoco talked to panelist and blogger Perez Hilton about online dating and life in New York City with his sweet son, Mario.

Celebrity Video Interview with Perez Hilton

As for why he was on the panel at Saturday’s event, the celebrity gossip columnist reveals, “I’m here to talk about my experiences — I’m on Match and many other sites. I think it’s fun to offer my perspective, which may be different from the other panelists because I’m a gay man and a personality.”

In our celebrity video interview, the blogger lights up when the subject turned to his son. “He loves New York! We do so much here,” he shares. “I think raising a child in New York City is the best because there’s so much to do and it’s so easy to do so much.”

Of course, having a child changed Hilton’s dating life, but he doesn’t like to use the word “difficult” when it comes to finding love. “It definitely presents challenges that a single person wouldn’t face. Like I choose not to bring guys back to my place. You gotta work around it! Do what you got to do.”

Right now, though, the single celebrity parent’s priority is Mario’s first birthday on Feb. 17. He shares that the father-and-son duo will be celebrating with a blessings ceremony. “I’m inviting all my close friends and family to come over and write down little blessings on a sheet of paper,” he explains in our celebrity video interview. “I’m trying to get some spiritual folks — maybe a rabbi and a priest, maybe a monk — to share some words and blessings as well.”

Eliza and Troy.

2014 “BRADY BUNCH” RECEIVES SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE WITH THE HELP OF MATCH.COM

Last November, Match.com asked their successful couples across the country who were ready to pop the question to enter to receive a proposal of a lifetime that included an engagement ring and professional proposal planning as well as a videographer to capture the entire experience. Out of hundreds of inspiring entries, Troy and Eliza from Tampa, Florida, were selected because of Troy’s overwhelming love, admiration, and respect for Eliza, a widowed single mother of three who rarely takes time for herself. Troy (with the help of an all-star proposal team) quickly began planning the ultimate surprise for his future bride-to-be…but not before documenting their entire love story on film, unbeknownst to her.

This is a sponsored post for Match.com.

By Nicole Cavanagh

Match.com, the world’s largest online dating site, has released findings from their Third Annual Comprehensive Study on the Single Population called ‘Singles in America.’ This study is the largest and most comprehensive nationwide look at the current 107 million single people in America and their romantic dating habits, sexual practices and lifestyles. Over 6,000 people (from a national and unbiased representative sample) were surveyed and polled. Both coupled and single men and women answered over 200 questions on just about everything: how they meet potential partners, what they want out of a relationship, how they view marriage and more. With help from world-renowned biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher from Rutgers University, findings revealed common myths about both married people and singles and explained the misconceptions of singles’ choices, all while taking into consideration the rise of technology in society and its impact on the dating world.
