HowAboutWe is the modern love company. Through our unique content and services, we support both singles and couples as they navigate the ever-changing terrain of dating and relationships. We offer two services. The former, HowAboutWe Dating, is the offline dating site. Our members begin with the words “How about we...” then describe an activity (such as “How about we... have dinner at this cool rooftop restaurant I know”). By using the date itself as starting point, we provide a simple and intuitive way to meet new people -- offline.

HowAboutWe for Couples curates unforgettable experiences, for two. A monthly membership offers couples access to a wide variety of date ideas, from private cooking lessons to backstage concert passes. Simply choose the date you'd like, and we take care of the details. Membership includes 1 free date every month, members-only discounts on every date in our collection, and monthly rewards such as 2-for-1 Fandango tickets and a free concierge service.
