This Week in Dating

375 launched a dating site in partnership with HowAboutWe late last year. Now our users are putting themselves out there and suggesting awesome date ideas. To provide you a window into their experiences, we’ll be sharing our favorite date ideas every few weeks as seen on the site. Single or attached, who couldn’t benefit from an inspired romantic suggestion or two?

The dates that caught our eye this week are all about kindness, giving back, and community improvement. Cynics and curmudgeons need not respond.

How about we… get in on a community art project at Portraits of Hope.
How about we… learn how to tie balloon animals, then give them to random people on the street.
How about we… check out a dog shelter and volunteer for an afternoon… then talk over our experience with ice cream in hand.
How about we… do a volunteer event in the inner-city together.
How about we… take a rescue pup for a walk. 

Plus, here’s a date idea from the editors of Los Angeles magazine:

Stop in to Angeli Caffe for one last great meal before the restaurant closes for good on January 13. If so moved, discuss the many memorable restaurants that have come on gone over the years, and the best new ones, too.  

Happy dating.
