Break the Dating Rules. We Dare You.

Pin it

HowAboutWe is all about dating how you want to — not how you’re supposed to.

So, earlier this week we announced our Break the Dating Rules Contest for Boston, Los Angeles, NYC, San Francisco and Washington DC:

Between now and Monday, January 24th at noon, anyone who proposes a date on HowAboutWe that breaks one of the following rules will be automatically entered to win awesome prizes:

Rule #1: Don’t touch your food – it’ll look like you were raised in a pigsty.

BREAK IT: Propose the best eat-with-your-hands date. (Because there’s something down to earth about dining with your digits, after all.)

e.g. How about we…do a progressive food truck dinner: Dinner at a banh mi truck followed by dessert at a mini-cupcake truck.

Rule #2: Don’t worry about money – you don’t want to look cheap.

BREAK IT: Propose the best date that costs $15 or less. (Because bargain hunting can be as much fun as dating…so you might as well combine them.)

e.g. How about we… set up a stand somewhere in the city and give out free advice, and then find the best $2 pizza slice in the neighborhood.

Rule #3: Don’t compete with your date – you’ll seem too aggressive.

BREAK IT: Propose the best date where you go head-to-head. (Because a little healthy competition – whether in skeeball or skiing – creates chemistry.)

e.g. How about we…brown paper bag a bottle of bordeaux and play bocce ball in the park (loser buys dessert).

On Tuesday, January 25th, we’ll post our favorites in each city in each category.

Then the voting begins! If your date idea gets the most votes, you could win awesome prizes (different in each city)! See the links below for more city-specific information:

Good luck! Now go propose a date.
