Match.com’s the Stir, September 25, 2012


The scene here was markedly different to Strange Angels: A much larger group of singles took part in a livelier, but slightly less structured, fete. About 300 prematched singles packed a Union Square bar, where revelers played Ping-Pong, ate bar snacks and drank the night away. The singles, all Match.com members, were invited by the website based on factors such as age, neighborhood and line of work. The event was just one of many put on by Match.com in the area, ranging from similar large-scale happy hours and activities to intimate cooking classes, tequila tastings and dance lessons.

    Jasmine, 31; digital resource manager; Jersey City, NJ
    Woman seeking men
    “One of the most important things you should know about me is that I’ve been traumatized by fences. Wooden, diamond-shaped, metal: They’ve all made appearances in my life for different reasons. Let me explain. At 8, I challenged one and failed. At 12, same deal: #epicfail. (Oh, and that time was particularly sad because it also involved the death of a McDonald’s cheeseburger. Sigh.) But here’s what’s great about failing: Last week, well, I scaled a park fence and won. So, you can take anything you want away from my story, but here’s what I think you should know about me: I love a challenge, I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and I, apparently, do not like to be fenced in.”
