HowAboutWe’s DateCam: Meet James, And Watch Him Go On A Dateby Chiara Atik on September 13, 2011
From time to time at HowAboutWe, we pick out two single people, set them up on a blind date, and then livestream the whole thing. It’s called DateCam and it’s a lot of fun. Read about previous DateCams here.
For our next DateCam — happening on Monday, September 19 at 8 p.m. ET — we’re setting up a designer, James (that’s him, on the left) with Bianca, the co-owner of a PR company. Read all about James below — then check out his date, Bianca, here.
We’ll also be debuting a DateCam drinking game later this week — RSVP on Facebook to get the first scoop and tune in Monday night at 8 pm for the big event!
