Hate Online Dating? Try a Stir Event by Match.com


Are "live" singles events better than online dating?

Last month, I wrote a blog post about an event I attended sponsored by Match.com, to promote their new Stir events.  Stir events are targeted to single people and  range from large scale happy hours at local bars and venues, to more intimate, interest-based events such as cooking classes, wine and tequila tastings, dance lessons, bowling nights, rock climbing, and more.
I don't love online dating so I thought these events would bring a different flavor to singles-meeting-singles, and help get over that uncomfortable situation that comes when your date doesn't look like his/her picture...and other inconsistencies.  So I like the concept of Stir.
I was given the opportunity to attend a Stir event, with the agreement that I would write a blog post about it.  So last week I attended a Happy-Hour-like event at a New York City bar on the Upper East Side.  Read more: http://eleanorewells.com/maybe-just-maybe-consider-mixing-up-your-dating...
