I’m going to let you in on a secret. Without you, HowHookup is just a bunch of buttons, pop-up windows, and caffeine-addled developers. Not so fun.

Fact is, a dating website is only as good as its community — you guys. As the brand-new Community Director, I feel like the luckiest person on staff because I get to interact with you on a daily basis. You’re why HowHookup exists, and I’m here to make sure you get the most out of your time with us. How do I hope to do that? Well, in a couple ways.


I’m here to:

Help you go online to get offline.
That’s what you’re here for, right? Nothing makes me happier than setting people up to find that magical, elusive “spark.” I’ll give you straight-forward, easy-to-follow tips on the entire process — from your date idea and profile, to preparing for your first date and following up after, and everything in between.

Showcase your creativity.
With the three words “How Hookup…”, you’ve been able to create a treasure trove of absolutely inspired date ideas. I see so many great dates everyday, and I’d love to share your brilliance with the rest of the community.

Celebrate your success!
Have you found someone great on the site? Then I want to hear about it! We’re all in this together and everyone loves an awesome success story.

Talk to you.
Look, I’m a real person. Not an algorithm. Not an automated email service. I  will be your friend, your cheerleader, and your advocate. Really! Need a date idea? Want advice on how to spruce up your profile? Want to host a HowHookup mixer in your city? I’m here to listen to all your ideas and stories.

Find me on HowHookup at JessFromHowHookup, and on Twitter at @HowHookup and @jessica_tom.

If you ever have a technical issue, the best place to turn is still , where I’ll also be making appearances, answering questions and listening to your feedback.

My job here has just begun, and there’s lots more to explore. Did I miss anything? What else would like to see from your Community Director? Let me know below!
