Baedates, shorthand for BUSY ALMOST EVERY DATE®, is the effort on a platter. This platform was created as a direct response to the lack of effort and enthusiasm, in dating, amongst twenty-and-thirty-somethings, in NYC. Baedates strives to encourage millennials to put real effort that real dates deserve...
...because Netflix and chill ain't enough.
As an intuitive creative who stops at nothing to deliver compelling content, Olaide Ojeks, 28, founder and visionary behind BUSY ALMOST EVERY DATE® (Baedates) ironically, never intended to create this type of platform. Baedates organically emerged from the pursuit of tackling a common problem amongst millennial dater : The lack-luster dating scene in her hometown, New York City. For whatever reason, effort in dating, somehow, evaporated (or so it seemed). After receiving a slew of questions, time and time again, about things to do, places to visit and what to wear in New York City, Olaide realized more than likely, she had an answer--more importantly, she realized there were a significant number of people who didn't. Olaide, who strives to incorporate her creativity and love for storytelling into everything she does, naturally wanted to share that love by curating tailor-made dates for anyone who'd ask her to. Fast forward, Baedates was born and is on it's way to becoming the go-to platform for date ideas, one meaningful experience at a time.
When Olaide is not combing the city looking for the next hotspot or amazing restaurant, you can find her behind her laptop, brainstorming her next social media post, creative directing a photo or video shoot, or watching every social-experiment reality show out there.
