Dating Gets a Stimulus Package: Tagged App Will Pay for Your First Drink


NEW HOPE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Meet Group, Inc., a leading provider of interactive dating solutions, announced the launch of DateNight, a livestreaming game which makes anyone the star of their own dating game, on its popular Tagged app. DateNight is the first-ever livestreaming dating game that offers rewards to anyone who plays. The game provides daters using its popular NextDate and BlindDate features who match during a DateNight event the opportunity to receive a free $10 gift card to one of 18 different national chain restaurants to give daters a well deserved “dating stimulus” this summer. DateNight events will occur over the next month on Thursdays and Sundays from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT starting June 17 and ending on July 31, 2021, but this program may be extended longer.

“Last year, we introduced NextDate and BlindDate to the Tagged community as a way for our members to date safely through video and have fun,” said Geoff Cook, Chief Executive Officer of The Meet Group and GM Video ParshipMeet Group. “Over the last year, our members have struggled with mental health and financial worries due to COVID-19. With vaccination rates high in the US and COVID-restrictions lifting, 84% of Tagged members say they plan to go on a date in the next 30 days. We hope this dating stimulus will help our Tagged members enjoy their summer dates even a little more with the first drink on us.”

“This is the best time to be single in recent history. A global pandemic has only strengthened the desire for millions to discover love and actually enjoy dating,” said Charreah K. Jackson, Tagged’s Connection Specialist. “There’s no place like the Tagged community, and it’s the perfect spot to meet someone new for a first date. DateNight provides the extra motivation and fun for singles to head out for more dates in person – and let Tagged cover the first drinks.”

Given the increased focus on health and safety in this time of COVID-19, The Meet Group’s Safer Dating Advisory Board continues to advise the Company and its community, providing the latest in health and safety guidelines. Beyond viral safety, The Meet Group offers enhanced physical safety to all its daters through an industry-leading relationship with UrSafe, a first-of-its-kind mobile personal safety app and next-generation global security company.

DateNight is available on the Company’s Tagged app starting June 17 through July 31 for members in the United States.
