Singles

Now, dating website for couples to spice up their love life.

A New York-based dating website is reaching out to rev up the love lives of city slickers who are already matched up, by providing pre-planned dates.HowAboutWe caters to couples who are too busy — or too lazy — to plan their own dates.

“We’re a modern love company,” co-founder Brian Schechter told the New York Daily News.HowAboutWe for Couples is a spinoff of the company’s popular HowAboutWe dating site for singles, where date-seekers pitch a date idea and see if anyone bites.

Schechter got the idea for the couples’ site after noticing singles were deactivating their accounts once they met someone.
But he said that they kept coming back because they were looking for inspiration for their own dates.

They realized that people who are in relationships are still looking for wonderful date ideas.
On HowAboutWe for Couples, the dates are already planned.Favorites include “Peanuts About You,” a date to a peanut butter specialty shop in the West Village, and “Scratch That,” a DJ lesson for two.

For 18 dollars a month, couples can choose from a selection of pre-planned dates.Some are free, but more extravagant dates — like a two-night getaway in the Finger Lakes region — cost extra.
Since it launched in November, more than 2,000 couples have signed up for the service, which is only available in New York, with plans to launchsoon in San Francisco.
