Seeking 30 Parents To Go On 30 Different Dates In 30 Days
Parents, get ready to see another side of San Diego…
I’m going to start by saying this idea is a little crazy.
I’m a parent so I understand how hard it can be to schedule dates. With kids in the mix, the odds of a perfectly-executed date night decline… but it’s not impossible. So, when you do go, it had better be good, right?
I’m partnering with the Details Matter app to send 30 parents on 30 different dates in 30 days starting on August 1.
These aren’t your average dates and guaranteed to inject a little fun into your routine. I also believe this project is a brilliant way to showcase unique opportunities that San Diego has to offer couples, singles and tourists. Dates will occur all over the county and cost somewhere between $0-$300 each but they are all FREE to parents who are selected to participate.
What is the Details Matter app? It’s an app made by a San Diego company that is full of awesome, local date ideas. Forget dinner and a movie and see what else America’s Finest City has to offer. Download it for FREE on Android and iPhone. The app lists places all over San Diego and Sacramento where mentioning the Details Matter app might just score you a discount.
My friend, Tim King, used the Details Matter app to take 30 different girls on 30 different dates a few months ago. Read Tim’s stories on the Details Matter blog. He wrote that not only did he get a lot of life packed into just a few weeks, but he learned about amazing experiences right here in San Diego. This is exactly why I’m fired up about this project. There is so much more to do in San Diego than dinner and a movie.
We’ll be rolling out all of the available dates over the next week so check back regularly. Here are dates we can share so far:
How Can I Participate?
Well, it’s rather simple.
All of the above works, too! Details Matter is looking for enthusiasm and compelling cases. Have you not been on a date in over a year? Are we offering a particular date you’ve been dying to go on? Tell us why. Shout it from the rooftops on social media as much as you like or flood my email. Details Matter wants to send parents on these dates who are truly excited about the opportunity. Interested in more than one of the dates on offer? That’s ok, so let us know! We’re watching the hashtag #30datesin30days like hawks.
During the last week of July, Details Matter will reach out to participants they feel are a good fit to continue the discussion and schedule dates. Don’t worry… you indicate interest in a particular date (we’re not selecting dates for you). Remember, these dates won’t cost you any money once you get there.
Enthusiasm can be as simple as a copying and pasting these tweets while including your own reason in the brackets.

The Oh So Fine Print
We are looking for parents: single parents, married parents, same-sex parents… if you have kids, you’re eligible!
Dates will take place in San Diego, but you don’t have to live here. Beginning June 25, Details Matter will reach out to couples they think are a good fit for each date to continue the discussion, coordinate logistics and schedule dates. Know that each date falls on a specific day (TBD) and that each couple will be selected to go on one date only. Dates will also be highlighted on the Details Matter blog so you’ll need to provide them with a photo and a quick recap. If selected, once your date is scheduled, it’s up to you to complete it. It’s a group project so don’t let everyone down!

You in? Let’s showcase San Diego… together.
