{Dating Tales} Keeping the Online Dating Profile Open

Having freelanced for's The Date Report and having worked with the site on a few campaigns, including starting an online dating profile, going on a few dates, and attempting to find "Mr. Right," I was pretty excited when I found out that the online dating site was getting all couple-y.

HowAboutWe for Couples is a site where couples can book dates together. And, ya know, start dating again with those butterflies-in-the-stomach, this-is-a-great-first-date type of feeling. But without that awkward I-don't-know-how-this-is-going-to-go, this-is-like-a-job-interview-with-cocktails kind of way. After all, the entire premise of HowAboutWe is to get offline and go on dates. Fast. 

Naturally, the section of the site that's geared towards couples would focus on the same thing. HowAboutWe for Couples provides a monthly curated selection of cool dates in New York City, which ranges from a five-course tasting to cooking classes to themed-dates (read: Haunted House dates around Halloween) to tango classes.

Between shuttling Aiden to and from school, all of his weekend extracurricular activities, and getting ready for my little guy to turn six, this delicious single momma needed a bit of sexy fun. Sooner than later.

So I used HowAboutWe for Couples sign up for a Wine Tasting and Tango class with The Guy. I figured we needed to release some tension, especially after dealing with my guardedness and all the other issues I've had to power through. All I did was book the date through the site, and HowAboutWe took care of the rest -- the planning, the reservations, and telling me where to show up. A bonus? The tip was already included when I made the reservation.

Tangoing is typically not my style, but I vowed to go on different types of dates this year, and so... it was fun to try out. We learned a new dance style, got to be silly, and we got to flirt and be sexy. Plus, I was able to get my grown woman on.

And now, I'm ready for another date. A boozy brunch or a city cruise is currently calling my name. And I'm happy that I can keep my online dating profile open, even if it's just to browse and book dates for The Guy and me. 

HowAboutWe for Couples membership is $18/month and it'll give you access to free HowAboutWe dates, up to 75% off every date in the collection, members-only services, one FREE date, early booking on new dates, and couples rewards (ie: buy one, get one free). Afraid of commitment? No worries! Membership requires no commitment and you can pause or cancel at any time. You can also purchase dates as a non-member, without the member discount.

Happy dating!

  1. Nice. The hubby and I could use something like this. We don't go out nearly enough.

  2. Definitely going to check this out. The Mr and I haven't had a date night in five years! To say we are overdue for some adult alone time is an understatement. Glad you and your guy had fun getting your tango on!

  3. Well, very nice post with a very nice story. It is quite true that online dating is effective, but comes with several sides. The person appearing to be the best there may not be the same in reality. It is nice idea to keep the profile open and keep trying always. I also did this while dating a Persian girl recently and I got the appropriate response and my love from there as well.


I love reading what you have to say!
