Match.com has launched a programme of social activities for UK singles, starting with a meetup for dog owners in Battersea Park, London.
Match.com socials will run events based on common interests, to help singles find an offline ice-breaker.
The events will range from photography and cookery classes to medieval banquets.
Jeremy Corenbloom, marketing director at Match, said: “Member insight tells us that taking part in activities which involve a shared interest can be a great ice-breaker when meeting new people.”
They are launching the service with Bark in the Park on the 5th of April, from 12:30-15:00, for singles and their dogs in Battersea Park, London.
Corenbloom said: “A significant number of our members own dogs so it made sense to create a launch event for our Match.com socials programme which is focused around a shared interest singles are passionate about.”
Match have advertised the event around Battersea Park, with posters at eye-level for both owners and dogs.
The posters for dogs are scented with a “beefy dog food aroma” to catch the attention of the canines.
Bark in the Park is open to all dog-owning singles, not just Match.com members.
Attendance costs £5, but this money will go to Dogs Trust, the largest dog welfare charity in the UK.
