In 2010, longtime friends Brian Schechter and Aaron Schildkrout started dating site HowAboutWe.com as a way to “build a new way to date” and to “solve the problem of modern love”. The approach they came up with was to get actual dates started as quickly as possible. It essentially skips the traditional profile, making it so folks “go online long enough to learn enough to go offline” and actually meet in the real world with real people. They even have a HowAboutWe.com iPhone app.
By focusing on the actual date, HowAboutWe totally flips the script on traditional online dating. Our activity-based approach to online dating is all about making the online part easier so you can get to the dating part faster. The HowAboutWe way is more fun, more natural, and more effective way to meet new people and go on great dates.
