It’s a story as old as time: man gets frustrated with dating apps, man creates website that serves as his personal dating site, man posts site on facebook group about dating in Saint-Louis, the man’s site goes viral, 300 women learn about dating a man …
In this case we are talking about Colin O’Brien and his site datecolinobrien.com, where if you’re single and interested in St. Louis, you can learn its stats (including Harry Potter House and Myers-Briggs personality type), pros (“interesting career” and “big fan of ‘Weird’). Al’ Yankovic”), and cons (“created this website”). After doing that, O’Brien posted it on Facebook Date Ideas & Things to Do in STL, and it took off.
Now the dating innovator is back with another brilliant idea — and this time he wants to help. O’Brien is hosting a free Singles-themed Valentine’s Day event, Single on Valentine’s Day Happy Hour. From 5 to 8 p.m. on February 11, come mingle with the Urban Chestnut Brewing Company Downtown location (3229 Washington) where branding experts will be on hand to polish your dating app profile, a photographer will capture an updated photo for you, and stylists can give your look a zhuzh. Who knows… maybe you’ll meet someone special.
And when you do, take our compatibility quiz – co-written by O’Brien – to see if it’s true love. Why follow O’Brien’s advice? Well, although he’s not ready to shut down the site just yet, he thinks he’s found that special someone.
