Here at ONIN.London, we’ve been to one of Match.com’s unique dating events before. (https://onin.london/match-com-diy-dating-event-review). Now dating service Match is set to launch another unique Central London pop-up stocked to the brim with eligible bachelors. Single females who are holding on for a hero this summer are encouraged to take control of their dating game and check out the ‘Model Males’ selection of 3D-printed action figures, all modeled on real-life Match members.
Match’s latest initiative is designed to encourage single women to make the first move by offering another unique way for them to meet a like-minded partner. This pop-up with a difference will showcase some of the great guys on Match, and was created in response to the rise of dating practices such as ghosting (vanishing without a trace) and breadcrumbing (leading someone on).
Using 3D printing technology, a selection of Match’s most eligible gents have been turned into miniature versions of themselves (each standing at around seven inches tall) and will be displayed in the pop-up, ready for single ladies to browse and take home.
Visitors to Model Males, located on Thayer Street in Central London, will receive a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival (on a ‘first come, first served’ basis) and get to know more about their potential dates by reading their profile information (name, age, occupation, and their best qualities) on the box of each bespoke figurine. If a single lady sees a man she thinks is a good match for her, she’ll be able to get in touch with the real-life member by following a link on the packaging.
We’re pretty impressed with this new initiative and we want you to tell us if your visit has you meeting your perfect match.
