Singles Meetup Groups

February 2013 TribeOfSingles News:

Top Dating Sites Model the Meetup Success of Love Matches
The New York Times recently explained the business incentive behind the sudden race for dating sites to offer real life meet-ups. The Times didn’t mention that top dating sites are following the lead of America’s Love Guide, Hadley Finch.

In early 2010, Hadley created the first meetup groups to help members meet offline in social, sports, theatrical, educational and networking activities that she’d scheduled for them in Chicago and other cities.

What Meetup Activities did TribeOfSingles Chicago enjoy in 2012?

TribeofSingles-Chicago Meetup Group did improv at Second City. They watched Diane Lane perform at Goodman Theater and enjoyed a post-show discussion with Diane. They did speed dating in Chicago and suburbs. They attended Museum of Contemporary Art’s First Friday Party with hundreds of art lovers every month. They played softball in a Chicago league. They saw Steppenwolf Theatre’s hit play about finding love online, meeting for a post-show dinner. They were invited to participate in several episodes of Steve Harvey’s national television talk show.

How did top dating sites find out about Hadley Finch and Meetup Success?

Hadley actually told global dating industry professionals her success secrets in January 2012,

when she was invited to speak at iDate-Miami. While waiting for her turn to take the stage,

Hadley heard top dating site executives express a common complaint:

They’d spend millions of dollars in advertising to attract new members in their dating sites, only to have them unsubscribe after only 1-3 months of membership.

How did Hadley Finch solve the dating site retention problem without spending millions in advertising? How does she inspire savvy singles to join and remain a member in TribeOfSingles Love Matches until they meet their great love match?

Hadley happily revealed her member retention secrets to top online dating site executives during her live and taped iDate presentation. She admitted that after her happy marriage to a corporate superstar ended tragically, she still believed in great love and set out to find it online. She’d used top dating sites to meet great men on three continents, not without risks and disappointments. She wrote about her adventures in the novel and blog, Tribe Of Blondes.
  Hadley told iDate how she’d deleted these risks and improved the online dating experience when she created in 2009 by:

Leading the world’s first guided love quest, like a dating sherpa who handles baggage and gives you a love toolkit to choose your great love match and build a great relationship;

Offering love vacations for active singles to meet in travel adventures around the world; Introducing members in live video dating chats, where you get to know each

other before you decide to get on a plane or go to a local coffee shop to meet in person;

Sharing expert love advice from her radio show, A Lasting Love, from her new book, 911 Breakup Survival, and from hundreds of her articles which members receive in videos, audios, and emails.

Creating Meetup Groups for TribeOfSingles to gather offline in special events that she and other members schedule in Chicago and other cities.

If TribeOfSingles has benefitted from these services since 2009, why is this news in 2013? These dating services and meetup activities became news for the online dating industry when

Hadley revealed these strategies during iDate-Miami in January 2012.

Is she concerned that top online dating sites will model even more of her success strategies?

Hadley’s goal is to help all dating singles in the world find their great love match, and she can’t do this alone. She’d like to license her guided love quest to top dating sites to provide expert advice and exciting love skills that help singles break through hidden barriers to love, choose a great love match and reach the peak of pleasure and passion in a loving relationship.
