Rider Tales: On-Demand Romance

We at Uber certainly aren’t relationship counselors. However, we’ve been known from time to time to ease some domestic tensions with On-Demand romance! Uber’s a great way to show you care. Here’s a recent Uber relationship-saver straight from the rider:
My girlfriend and I had our six month anniversary. Now I’ve never celebrated anything but yearly anniversaries, but apparently she had a very different notion of the significance of “6 months.” Crazy, I know–and I didn’t get the memo. So, I ended up in some rather hot water having little/nothing planned for the occasion.
I quickly OpenTable’d a nice dinner rez and opened up the Uber app. Steve (our Uber driver) arrived in six minutes. He opened the door and was unbelievably professional. My girlfriend was pretty impressed. I mean the power shift was pretty spectacular. I went from [*expletive*] to Casanova in like five minutes. We had a nice dinner downtown and used Uber to get home for a “happy, happy ending.” You’ve got me for life.
Ha! Well congrats on pulling through at the last minute (*Ladies, Uber does not condone last minute romantic gestures, we’re simply glad we could help). [User that we cannot name] :) enjoy your free ride for sharing such a great, and happy, Uber experience. For the rest of you, keep in mind that Valentine’s day is just around the corner (wink, wink).

Today, I’m excited to announce that Arianna Huffington will join Uber’s board. For those of us who know Arianna, it’s clear she knows a thing or two about being an entrepreneur. As the founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, she’s built one of the most successful, innovative media companies in the world… from scratch. […]
