How About We…

19 Apr

A lot has happened in the world of dating since I went off the market. I recently wrote about Yoke which is a social application that helps singles find dates through Facebook. Now I’ve stumbled on a site called HowAboutWe which allows people to post short blurbs of things they’d like to do on a date. Another user can see some basic information about you, the date you’d like to go on, and can can then send a message to arrange the outing.

As someone who not only has an undiagnosed case of Attention Deficit Disorder, but is also the laziest dater known to mankind, this appeals to my senses. I don’t want to answer philosophical questions about myself, or update my profile with information on the last great meal I ate. Hell, I barely want to brush my hair before taking a default picture. I just want to look at photos and decide who would be least likely to reject me if I tried to have sexy times with them.

When you login to the site you get a list of matches, and their meetup ideas.

This is a language I speak. It’s immediate. It’s straight to the point. It’s fun. I needed to get in on the action! I set up a profile and posted these ideas:

So far, no takers. Romance is dead.

    Also, very interesting that what you call “dress your penis in a tiny stovepipe hat and make it impersonate Abraham Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address” I call “my morning routine.

    Okay, the Gettysburg Penis sounds tres awesome, and the “let’s hold each other’s hair while we puke” is actually rather sweet, when you think about it.

    Plus, I’d go to the Oregon zoo with that one dude. He sounds like a fun date.
