HowAboutWe

Singles in major US cities find romantic matches by suggesting fun date ideas to an online community and seeing who bites on How About We.

, Dating Site Profile by

HowAboutWe is new to the national online dating scene but they’ve been a part of the New York circuit for a couple of years now. A novel concept in online dating, HowAboutWe.com has the aim of getting singles “offline,” that is, on dates in the real world with less communication online.

Tapping into the social networking vein of “share your lifestyle with me in 100 words or less,” HowAboutWe members (it’s free to join and peruse) are asked to come up with a profile and a date idea, usually something like

“How about we order Thai food and watch House Hunters together?”

or

“How about we go rock climbing and get tacos?”

Singles then contact other members whose date ideas seem interesting and viola! Instant soulmate. While sort-of gimmicky, HowAboutWe.com has a unique approach that really does cut to the heart of a dater’s style…you know pretty quickly to rule someone out if their ideal date is the ballet and you’re more punk rock but it’s a new site and still growing.

The target demographic is definitely the 20 and 30-something set because the site is well put together and easy to navigate. If you want to communicate on How About We you’re going to have to pay a monthly membership fee but that’s something you should have expected from the get go.
