If you don’t have anything to do and no date for the weekend, don’t blame new online social dating site The Chicago-based start-up combines online dating, social networking, and free, interactive group “Date Ups” for all subscribed members to meet and find love.

There's someone for everyone. You just have to meet them.

What sets apart from other dating sites is that it creates all the dates for subscribed members. Every week, a list of free and very fun ‘Date-Ups’ are posted via our member’s only newsletter. Each ‘Date Up’ showcases some of Chicago’s and other city’s best venues for subscribed members to RSVP and attend to make for the perfect date. Future cities include Miami, Atlanta, and LA before launching nationwide. “Plus, built-in Video-Chat capabilities coupled with group date settings, creates the best in safe online dating for women,” notes James Parker, Founder and CEO.

“Meeting someone online and then meeting with them in person by yourself can be exciting and scary at the same time,” says new member Alicia. She has a few not-so-pleasant stories while trying online dating or just bad dates in general. “However, I think meeting someone online and then meeting them in a group setting with other singles provides you the opportunity to feel safe, excited, and more comfortable to really get to know the person," Alicia mentions.

“That’s been the response of nearly all of our members when asked about our concept,” adds Mr. Parker. “The idea is to give members, particularly women, the feeling of safety and control when meeting someone on a first date. We’re excited to list our first set of dates this month.” MeetAt6 is easy and very similar to other dating sites. You can create great profiles, upload pictures and video, leave messages, make friends, and much more.

Another added plus is that there’s only one membership price that gives subscribed members access to all the features of the site including the opportunity to RSVP for the ‘Date Ups.’ No need for pricey upgrades just to meet people on

In Chicago, ‘Date Ups’ will include Lake Michigan cruises, live jazz, wine tastings, segway tours, dance lessons, museum outings, and many more. Specialized ‘Speed Dating’ events which are all free, will include different age groups, single parents, 50 and over, and other cool dating ideas.

The first set of Date Ups will be posted this month with many different events. “We believe there is someone for everyone. You just have to meet them. Now you can on MeetAt6,” Mr. Parker highlights.
