If you’ve been reading my blog over the last year or know me in person, you have probably heard me say that I think match.com
is one of the best sites to meet someone. I’ve personally had the best success with it – have met a few boyfriends on it and have had general success in meeting quality guys through match.com. I’m currently talking to a total sweetheart on match and we have tentative plans to meet up soon!
But, you also know I’m a fan of speed dating because it takes the world of online dating “offline” and you get to meet people in person. Match.com has taken the best of both worlds and created something calls a Stir event. Stir events, which take place in person (versus online), offer events around the US ranging from large-scale happy hours to more intimate events like tequila tastings (one of my drinks of choice!) and DJ lessons (DJ Joanna, anyone?)
So Match.com is celebrating Stir’s one-year anniversary. This is pretty cool because it demonstrates its success and that match has had time to work out the kinks. In the last year, they have had almost 3,000 events (in actuality: 2,850 events – broken down, that’s 14 events each day, 75 events a week, 320 events per month), which allows for many opportunities to meet dudes and ladies. Over 225k people have attended so that’s a lot of peeps to meet!
So you’re reading this and thinking “yeah, yeah, but I only need to meet one person.” Well, now’s your chance. You can help create your own Stir event, which puts you in the power position to potentially meet someone! How do I do this, you ask? It’s easy.
