Guess Who’s Going Out to Dinner?

CLICK HERE to watch Dinner With Strangers at Babble’s Family Kitchen.

Social Dining Service. Yes, you read that correctly.

If you haven’t been able to arrange dinner parties with people using Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and Google+, have no fear. There’s a new kind of social networking platform called BlendAbout that matches you with other, like-minded individuals for meals.

I read about BlendAbout in Chef John Malik’s Huffington Post column, and as someone that has spent time dining alone, he seems to think it’s a service with merit.

Head over to Family Kitchen, watch Dinner With Strangers and share your thoughts on this new kind of social networking in the comments.

    I really like the idea and the possibilities that come with it.
    Meeting new, like minded people is a great thing.
    Especially if with a platform like this, people know that you are just looking for one to have dinner with, and not (like on real dating sites) expect that you are “the one”.
    I would definately use this… but sadly it is only for the US and Canada and not for europe.
    But I will keep an eye on the project and if they will expand over the ocean I will join in.
    So thanks for the suggestion. :)

    I think the idea that you do have “lowered expectations” (lol) is a good point. Conversation without the pressure of dating :) Love your thoughts, Jan!
