Something that I saw in a lot of my friends’ relationships when we were younger was a lack of creativity in dates. In high school, if you didn’t have a car or a license, you were pretty much out of luck. In college, you were just a little bit too poor to do everything that you wanted to do. I may not know anything about this next statement that I’m about to say, but I truly think you can experience what dating really is in your 20s.
In your 20s, you’ve established maturity. You are no longer the crazy girlfriend or boyfriend that you once were when you were in high school. In this age range, you’re probably on your way to having much deeper pockets. The stars are aligned in your 20s. You’re smarter, you know what you want, and you’ve got the creativity to impress said target.
At first read when I stumbled upon a post about a dating site called Howaboutwe last night, I thought to myself “How can a site like this exist? Really? People can’t make up their own dates?” Then I looked into a little bit further. Howaboutwe is a dating service FOR couples. If you’re tired of spending countless nights sitting on your couch and watching a movie or just settling for a dinner out and a movie (if you’re really daring,) then the service will plan dates for you that require you to do nothing but show up and of course pay a fee for the service and idea.
For just $22 a month, membership to the HowAboutWe Couples Club grants you access to their monthly DateBook, offering a wide variety of dating options — that are already planned for you. The special member rate gets you extreme discounts on dates like a wine tasting and tapas dinner at Entwine, or a private guided tour of the Museum of Moving Images. The best part? Membership means that certain dates are actually free!
Currently, this service only exists in New York, but to be honest if it came to Seattle – I think I would be a little bit curious. Maybe even curious enough to try it out myself.
