The Review: It doesn’t take long for a fresh scent to catch your attention. That is what Howaboutwe.com can be compared to as they put “dating” back into online dating. Many online dating sites may have went too far in playing the “matching” game or relying on members to publish half true profiles of themselves. The whole concept behind Howaboutwe.com is in its company name. Each member is to post a date idea, “How about we (then fill in the blank)”. The date will be featured next to your profile which is nothing more than your gender, sexual orientation, age, and location. Simple. You can post as many dates as you like so there is no pressure. If a picture is worth a thousand words, posting date ideas has the same effect. It allows other members to know your interests and gives an insight to the type of person you are. The matching is done by yourself and not by some formula generated by a computer and half honest profiles. Each member is required to post a picture which also helps. There is a sense that its members are genuine.
The Advice: So how can you fully utilize this site. First, post a decent picture of yourself. Don’t mislead people by posting a picture of you and your friends or siblings. This is about you and it should be you. Do not post a picture you took from a prehistoric camera phone. Take a picture at a well lit location where we can see your wonderful features.
Now for the juice of the site, the dates! List something that you truly enjoy. Try to list a location to go with your date. Be creative, do something that you have always wanted to do but not get a chance to. Here are some popular dates that were posted:
“How about we… go to The Getty and check out the exhibits and explore the beautiful grounds.”
“How about we… walk the trails of the Bronson Caves, taking in nature and famous movie sites.”
“How about we… chat online at a coffee shop sitting across each other talking about each person that comes in.”
