As many of you know, I’ve been in online dating hell for the last few months. So much so that I’ve pretty much given up. I’m hoping that Match.com can help me with their “Stir” service, which is Match.com’s answer to offline events, offering a wide range of activities to Match.com members around the country ranging from large-scale happy hours at popular venues, to more intimate events like tequila tastings and DJ lessons! Match.com‘s Stir is celebrating its one-year anniversary. In just one year, Match has hosted 2,850 events – broken down, that’s 14 events each day, 75 events a week, 320 events per month! Match has collaborated with over 1,200 venues and partners, including House of Blues, Banana Republic, Sur la Table and Warrior Dash, along with local gems in cities across the country. Match is throwing singles events in over 80 cities – including events in Anchorage and Honolulu! Over 225,000 singles have attended a Stir event to date.
To celebrate the Stir anniversary, Match.com is offering the opportunity for singles to create their own Stir event, and if their event is chosen, to work with Match Stir event planners to bring it to life just as you planned it! You just tell Match.com’ “What Stirs You?” on their contest page at Match.Com’s Stir Singles Events , now through Tuesday May 28th, 2013 and say what you think would make for the perfect singles event to be entered to win. Entries will be judged based on quality, creativity, uniqueness and geographical relevance. The selected winner will have their idea re-created by the Match.com Stir Events team in their city, and will receive an invitation to attend the event along with ten of their single friends – all at no charge! In addition, the winner will also receive a free six-month Match.com subscription. Isn’t that a cool idea?
