Today’s blind date is at a restaurant. The food and restaurant blog, Eater.com and the online dating site HowAboutWe have joined forces to create Eater Dating, the site for singles in search of their soul mate – and a perfect dining companion.
With Eater Dating, one is no longer asked to search through hundreds of online profile in search of an appetizing partner – now it’s all much simpler: a single user can publish an open invite, with the date of the proposed dinner and the restaurant. Just wait for somebody to come forward, and you’ve got a dinner date all set up.
As for the rest? Well, it’s up to fate. So if between a flûte of champagne and a plate of spaghetti sparks begin to fly, then the team at Eater Dining is all set to celebrate. After all, sharing a passion for great food is one way for love to blossom.
