No one gets the thrill – and some would say, misery – of online dating than the relationship experts at Match.com. Last year, the folks who put online dating on the map added another layer of pizzaz to the dating matrix with the launch of Match.com Stir Events, which are exclusive, offline single events for their members.
In the first year, Match.com hosted a whopping 2,850 events nationwide with 1,200 partners, including House of Blues, Banana Republic, Sur la Table and Warrior Dash, along with local favorites in host cities. Broken down, it came to 14 events each day, 75 events a week, 320 per month.
The Stir events were an instant success and the perfect antidote for singles with Starbucks fatigue, as more than 200,000 people how showed up. The following YouTube video perhaps explains it best:
To celebrate their one-year anniversary Match.com is offering Stir Events in over 80 cities across America. They’re even hitting Anchorage and Honolulu. Bob sledding, perhaps?
This time around, however, Match.com is seeking the advice and wisdom of the folks who know what makes for a perfect date: their members.
Rollerblading in Central Park? Drinks on top of the Empire State Building? A sunset cruise around Manhattan? Dim sum in Chinatown?
