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.
