While I really love the events - and the whole idea of taking online dating offline - I didn't realize that the concept is only one year old. In those twelve months, Match.com has hosted 2,850 events - which breaks down to 320 events a month. That's 75 Stir events a week! Over 225,000 singles have attended Stir events, in over 80 cities nationwide - including Anchorage and Honolulu!
Both events I've attended were happy hours at local, laid back venues. That's my style - relaxed, no pressure, just cool people having good conversation in a nice setting. But match.com organizes more than just happy hours. Popular Stir events have included DJ lessons, cooking classes, tasting events, bowling, etc. Match.com has partnered with over 1,200 venues and organizations, including House of Blues, Banana Republic, Sur la Table and Warrior Dash. How's that for variety?
To celebrate the one year anniversary of Stir, Match.com is offering singles the opportunity to create their own Stir event. What could be better? How about having your event chosen, and working with Match.com to bring it to life!
How does it work? Visit Match.com's "What Stirs You?" contest page now through Tuesday, May 28, 2013, and tell Match.com what you think would make a perfect singles event in your area. Entries will be judged based on creativity, quality, uniqueness, and geographical relevance. The winning event will be re-created by the local Stir event team, and the winner will be invited to attend the event with 10 friends - at no charge!
As if that's not enough, the winner will also receive a free six-month subscription to Match.com!
