Online dating going back to traditional single dances?
Online dating going back to traditional single dances?

Online dating is moving forward by looking to what worked in the past.  Match.com is adding something new for their singles' social lives with live events to meet up at.  The events are taking place across the country and while they sound like the old single dances of the past, these events are hip and trendy. They don't even call them single events - but "Stir Events", as they hope they can stir things up.

Forget having to wonder who’s single and who’s not at a bar or hot spot. When you go to a Stir event, everyone will be single, everyone will be looking to meet someone, and each event will be customized through their group matching algorithms in terms of age, gender and interests. 

The events have already begun in certain cities, and include:

  • Happy hours
  • Cooking classes
  • Wine & tequila tastings
  • Bowling nights
  • Dance lessons

They are rolling out Stir in more than 20 U.S. cities by June and nationwide by September.  With hundreds of events a month and thousands of people attending events a week, Match.com is creating more ways for people to meet.

Members can learn about and sign up for these events via Match.com, and subscribers can even invite friends and bring them along as an added benefit.
