BASKING RIDGE, NJ, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Couple.com, the pioneering video dating platform that connects singles around the world, will attempt to claim multiple speed-dating records by hosting a See you till you drop online event Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. ET in honor of National Sandwich Day.
Yes, National Sandwich Day.
The event, which is “localized” virtually and open to people around the world, aims to connect and couple a record number of singles…on a record number of video speed dates…for a record length of time.
“Couple strives every day to celebrate singleness and the pursuit of love,” said Ryan Beswick, CEO of Couple. “But every once in a while it’s fun to take it a step further. And our Date ‘Til You Drop event is definitely that.”
Hundreds of daters are expected to participate in the online event, which will not end until all but 25 people have dropped out. And love isn’t the only thing on the table (although there will be plenty of it – get ready, Town Hall!); more than 300 prizes worth $20,000 are up for grabs:
- Most participants will win a $10 Subway gift card and 1,000 Couple Coins (the in-app Couple currency that can be used to purchase experience upgrades).
- The last 25 participants will win a $250 Amazon gift card and 100,000 Couple Coins.
But why National Sandwich Day?
“As a dating app, we live and die on the strength and predictability of our matching engine,” Beswick explained. “But even we have to admit that sometimes love is wonderfully random. And what could be more random than a national holiday dedicated to stuffed bread?”
“Plus,” he joked, “people are going to be hungry after a ten hour date. They’re going to need a little sammie.”
Singles aged 18 and over who want to date until they drop can register for the free event at couple.com.
