Proposing and responding to dates

On HowAboutWe you will be able to post dates that you think are ideal. You will also be able to browse through other people’s dates to see if there is one you are interested in. There are a few things to keep in mind in this process.

When posting a date:

  • Make sure that you post a date that you really are genuinely interested in. If someone responds to that date, then you will be stuck with your own choice, so make it something you like. At the same time make it as appealing as possible even if it is a fairly standard choice. Do this by including as many details as you can think of.
  • The more descriptive you are the more luck you are likely to have with your date proposal. Make sure that you add in as many details as you can.
  • Don’t think too much. It’s never a good idea to over think your date proposal. Just think of something that you would really like to do, and write it down.
  • Have fun when you write your proposal. If you’re labouring and sweating then you have the wrong attitude!

If you see a date proposal written by someone else that you quite like, you will be able to use the site’s secure system in order to send a message to that person. This will be done without your or their email address being revealed, so it s very secure.

If you like someone’s profile, but you don’t like the date that they are proposing, look through the other dates they have proposed in the past and respond to one of them instead. If you cannot find any dates that interest you on that person’s profile you should really question whether or not that person is the right one for you.

It won’t take you long to figure put the HowAboutWe site. This is an innovative way to meet people based on more than superficial aspects. You will be able to really find someone who has the same ideas about how to have fun as you. Through this method you have a higher chance of having a successful first date.
