Calling all single Chicago males!

Sarah Press

It’s been an exciting time for Project Fixup, our Chicago dating startup that sets people up on fun one-on-one dates around the city. Over 200 people have paid to get fixed up through our service and the vast majority of people who get fixed up like the experience and want to do it again. Next week, we are organizing craft beer themed dates, which should be a lot of fun. 

However, we seem to be running into a strange issue: more girls than guys seem to be signing up to get fixed up. A great problem for a dating startup to have, but one we'd nevertheless like to fix. To that end, we're having short one-on-one conversations over the next few weeks with single Chicago males ages 26 and up to learn more about their dating thoughts and hear their ideas and feedback on Project Fixup so we can get even better. You can sign up here

In exchange for letting us buy you a coffee and ask a few questions, everyone who helps can have a complimentary credit to try out our service and the warm and fuzzy feeling of helping to bring the human element back into dating.

Again, if you’re game to help, just click here and share your info so we can follow up. If you’re not single and/or not male, please spread the word to those who fit the criteria via email/twitter/facebook– I really appreciate it. Got questions or other ideas? Email [email protected]. Thanks!

Can't wait to hear what you find out Sarah. I've consistently struggled with this issue in my eight years of Mac 'n Cheese Productions, being unable to keep up with all the females who register, and ALWAYS female-heavy in every offering of mine. Though I'm not a dating-organization, I think having a gender balance is preferable, as opposed to 33 gals and 4 guys at an event. But it's been ridiculously tough to achieve. Thanks for trying to unearth some answers!
