We invite you to try out the new and free Shanghaiist Personals site, brought to you by the fine folks at Consumating. And no, it’s not just for those looking for some action. You don’t have to be single. You don’t have to be looking for a date. It’s a social site, not just a dating site. And it’s 2005 — Shanghaiist thinks the stigma associated with meeting people online has gone the way of the Yunnan Box Turtle. Especially in a sometimes intimidating city of 20 million, it’s often easier to meet people with similar interests online than inside a loud, smoky — or empty — bar.
Consumating, co-created by the editor of Austinist, is the hippest dating site online — one glowing review called it “tagalicious.” It doesn’t take itself too seriously, either. According to the site’s about page, Comsumating “began its life as a joke about online dating, but when people started using it to actually find dates, we got serious.”
So, what are you waiting for? Get in there. You never know who you might meet online.
