Are you out in it? We're on it. All the street-level tunes, flicks, chow, cocktails and more from sources around the city ...

Match.com -- there's a coupon for that

Single City is a blog about the Chicago dating scene written by Sun-Times Media Wire reporter Sally Ho.

Anyone who has moved to a new city for work knows how painfully boring and lonely it can be. So when my friend Lea moved to a very small town for her new job working with children, we weren't sure how she'd ever make it. How do you connect to others outside of mutual friends, school or work?

In her new world, Lea had neither of the three and so, in a fit of bravery, she decided to try out Match.com. But no friend of mine would go such a route -- pay to find dates?! No way Jose! -- without a discount. Lea Googled "coupons for Match.com" and got 25 percent off.

It initially surprised me to hear that such coupons existed, although I do now realize how legitimate dating websites have become. Like getting your clothes drycleaned or your hair cut, online dating is now such a common service that there is a demand for coupons, discounts and deals to scoop the competition.

Try these:

25 percent off Match.com subscription

50 percent off Match's sister dating site, Chemistry.com

(Note: I attempted to find coupons for EHarmony.com, JDate.com, Lavalife.com and MatchMaker.com to no avail, but maybe you'll have better luck finding the one --err, it. If you do, let everyone know in the comments.)
