Online dating services allow users to become "members" by creating a profile and uploading personal information including (but not limited to) age, gender, sexual orientation, location, and appearance.Most services also encourage members to add photos or videos to their profile.
While the vast majority of the messages I receive make me want to start hoarding cats in preparation for dying alone, the actual dates I've gone on have been mostly fine; a few even turned into multi-month dating situations. It's called "Crazy Blind Date," and it works like this: You pick a day and then you select a place from a list of local spots on Foursquare. Alternately, you can browse potential dates — you get a name, an age, a place and time, and a scrambled photo so you can't actually tell what the person looks like. Which I initially swore up and down I would not be doing, mostly because I didn't want to die.
I received a note from Bobby confirming that he was actually planning to show up and informing me he’d be wearing a blue sweater.
Feeling duplicitous — ABC7 News was already on its way to televise the date — I ventured over to the restaurant.
The date is also very adventurous in the way that neither party knows what to expect and whether or not they will hit it off.
The location of the date is also affected by the spontaneity in that it is often a neutral and public place so that both parties feel comfortable.
