A while ago I wrote a Shanghaiist post in which I mentioned Shanghai white-collar singles wearing wristbands to find morning subway commute conversation partners. Today I wandered across the website where they organized. Basically you put your personal info on the site, they make a list, and then pass out the wristbands at an announced station at an announced time. Here's a pic:

Wait, if there's a designated time, can't you just meet people at the pass-out station instead of depending on random chance?

The idea is, you wear your wristband during your daily commute and other members of the BBS will spot it and chat with you. The designated time-and-place is a one-time thing to pass out the wristbands. I think for Zhongshan Park it was during lunch on Saturday.

What is the BBS ? Can you post the URL please ?

Sure. I'm not sure why I didn't link to it in the post...

The wristband action is happening in the "Shanghai" forum.
