DoingSomething.co.uk: is doing something…different. It’s a dating website focused around the actual date and making something a bit more unique of it.

DoingSomething Profile

Doing Something teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox to bring singles action packed dates, leaving no room for awkward silences. Doing Something is a  dating site which takes first dates away from the restaurants and cinema and into the wilderness to bring you an action packed date. Twentieth Century Fox commission a survey that found 84 per cent of 16-24 year olds find awkward silences the most challenging on a first date. 

The site is all about the actual dating experience and let’s you pick a match based on the date idea they’ve suggested. And the more fun and unique the date the better. So, rather than nervously meeting someone for a luke warm coffee in a crowded chain, you could be trying out your culinary skills at a sushi-making masterclass or bonding over super-strong cocktails at a hipster speakeasy. It’s basically about finding someone who wants to do the same things as you at the end of the day.  

How does it works?

Sign up is quick and easy without the usual numerous questions and sections to fill in, the hardest part is thinking what you would like to do on a date that might attract like-minded people.  Once you’ve signed up and added a photo (from your computer or from Facebook) it recommends date ideas or you can broadcast your own date idea and see who is interested in it. It’s a fun idea which lets you relax a little; you won’t just be sat in a dark pub interviewing each other, as a date often is, you could be feeding squirrels or playing ping pong whilst singing. You can also see what sort of dates people in your area are interested in and click a “sounds good” button to let them know that you’d be interested in a date there too. It alleviates a lot of the pressure of dating websites, which often just focus around the profile of the members and so any rejection seems personal. With doingsomething.co.uk you can choose which dates AND which members you like, so it all seems a bit more relaxed.

How much does it cost? 

 £10 per month.  As a member you can also get discounts to a number of events all over the UK, which could save you quite a bit in the long run.
