Eater Joins Food Dating Scene

We all knew food could spark some sexy times (aphrodisiacs, anyone?) but it seems that people think food can make real relationships work out.

Eater has teamed up with The Daily Meal contributor HowAboutWe to launch Eater Dating, where users looking for love (or fun) post a date first and see if there are any takers.

It's very similar to the dating site HowAboutWe started with, so it's not too surprising.

And let's not forget that Eater isn't the only one hoping that food will lead to romance. Jamie Oliver teamed up with back in 2009. There are plenty of vegetarian or vegan dating sites, with one recently exposed for having plenty of meat-eating users. Who knows? Maybe some of our Daily Meal commenters may have a spark. Just in time for Valentine's Day, too.
