The idea for the “Milestone Market," the first ever digital dating pop-up store "designed to celebrate and reward major relationship milestones – from the very first sleepover to engagements, weddings and babies" was an attempt at extending the Hinge community, says Abramowitz.
In the name of love, eleven brands—including Casper, Rent the Runway, Minibar and Barkbox—are offering couples who met via Hinge .
Major “relationship” milestones and rewards include: For seven days, Hinge couples can redeem the gift associated with their milestone on IRL, Hinge’s Online Magazine, by verifying they met on Hinge, and sharing their story in an Instagram post tagging @Hinge and the corresponding partner.
Though each gift is available in limited quantity, partners will provide discounts for their products ranging from 10 - 50 percent should things sell out.

I overheard the whole conversation and snuck back to the store later in the day to buy a ring.After another day or two of planning and working with the hotel, I arranged for them to bring us up on stage during the show and turn a microphone over to me!
