Cupid's Pulse Article: ‘How About’ Giving Online Dating One Last Try?Cupid's Pulse Article: ‘How About’ Giving Online Dating One Last Try?

Some people spend Valentine’s Day doing extravagant things with their loved ones, while others spend it alone in front of their computers.  Does the latter sound like you?  Well, what would you do if I told you that this year, sitting in front of the computer might actually be the start to your ideal Valentine’s Day?  Would you think I was lying?  Yeah, so would I.  Which is why I did some research after hearing all the hype about

Before I say anything else, let me point out that HowAboutWe is a dating site … but it’s not actually a dating site.  Most people are hesitant to attempt online dating, but the only part of the actual dating that takes place on this site is the proposal.  According to their homepage, “It’s a site all about dates – inventing dates, scrolling through dates, asking people out and going on the dates you really want to go on.”

It’s no secret that connecting online has become an ideal dating option, which is why there are thousands of dating sites already out there.  What separates HowAboutWe from the rest is the wait time (or lack thereof).  HAW is straight to the point: What’s your ideal date?  Have you always wanted to go sky diving over beautiful scenery while holding hands with a significant other?  Type it in and instantly connect with those who share your interest – it doesn’t get easier than that.  In the meantime, look through your own date proposals until you find one right for you.

Once someone accepts your dating proposal or vice versa, the rest is natural.  The type of date itself already tells you a lot about the person, and you’re immediately thrown into an activity you both enjoy.  If the date lacks that special spark, take comfort that you’ve found a friend who shares similar interests as you, all while continuing to date other people who also share your hobbies until you find the person that’s right for you.  Who wouldn’t want to be asked out on a regular basis?

So instead of spending Valentine’s Day alone, How About YOU take a chance on HowAboutWe?  It’s more than just a great way to meet people; it’s a great way to meet the right people.
