Posted on 12/01/2011 11:56:19 AM PST by Slings and Arrows
A New York woman is being scrutinized and praised after people learned that she used a dating website to obtain $1,200 a month in free meals.
According to Business Insider, 23-year-old Jessica Sporty was deep in debt. Sporty had difficulties living on her $45,000 annual salary after spending nearly $1,500 a month in rent, paying her credit card bill, and buying food.
So she hatched up a plan and signed up with the popular online dating site Match.com so she could quickly go on five dates a week. Sporty even maintained a spreadsheet with detailed information on each of her dates, limiting each guy to a maximum of five.
Dates took Sporty to high-end New York restaurants, and one of her dates even bought her a $200 bottle of champagne.
Before I barely had enough money to pay for food, said Sporty. After using Match.com I found I wasnt going into debt anymore.
As of today, Sporty is no longer on the dating website as she is currently in a relationship and most likely freeloading off her new beau.
It was exhausting, she said. I needed my sleep and I was done playing the game.

I know a woman, a pretty high-ranking executive in my company now, who told how, in her young, post-college broke days she’d do the same thing. Except she wouldn’t eat much of the dinner, and would then take the leftovers home to her boyfriend.
Hey! We’re over here! The line for chocolate chip cookies and cocoa laced with rum is on the right.
You had me at chocolate...
The LV news was talking about a hiker lost on Mt. Charleston.
Cheated death again ... Tom drove me to the Food Lion, where we bought eggs, paper plates, and some half-price beef. Now I have to decide between writing Christmas cards while making Tom and Elen watch biology lectures ... or taking a nap.
Oh, I agree, she’s a real peach!
Mmmm, rum and chocolate, I am so here...
Anybody got any Rumchata? My daughter recommended it to me but can’t find it around here....unless I drive to Fresno.
I think I just got an idea for a web site. I’m not good at taking initiative and starting big projects like this so I am going give it up free to anybody wanting to follow-up.;)
Organized by match.com number or other dating site reference numbers.
It would be like reviews for hotels and resorts with categories for looks, conversation, high or low maintenance, gold digger quotient, and promiscuity index.
Guys section could have looks, income level, sense of humor, creepyness factor, and body hair issues.
You are so easy...
You are so easy...
“Lost” hikers on Mt. Charleston this time of year (or any other, for that matter) are as common as the idiots who are told, “Turn around! Don’t drown!” during the monsoon season.
They all have to pay for the rescue, some get tickets in addition to the rescue cost, and some get carried out in body bags. They just don’t listen when the weather man says something like, “There will be about 10”-14” of snow on Mount Charleston, with temperatures below 20 degrees.”
This guy was lucky. He said he would be OK last night, but that he would need help getting out this morning. *sigh*
I’m still in the midst of paying bills, but I was so cold and wet this morning after my trip to the post orifice and Walmart, that I just turned into a slug...The Stig had to tap his lettuce clip several times before he got my attention. Poor neglected little guy...
Ohyes...and while i was in Walmart, I saw a young marine in full-dress uniform, chest full of ribbons, and I had to go thank him for his service. Still gives me chills... ;o])
Would you like a little hot chocolate with that rum?
At this point no, but thank you just the same!
My kinda guy!
It can be.
Was seeing what everyone else thought about it.
The one pure zot thread was a ronpaul retread spam monkey.
So lame that he wasn’t worth the looksie.
I decided on the nap.
Now I need to start some potatoes cooking. They always take forever.
Sounds like a plan, as long as Frank doesn’t conspire with Jake and Ash.
Jake is firmly on the side of naps. He has the good leather chair! I think Shannon is upstairs in one of the boys’ rooms, where there was a sunbeam a few hours ago.
I figured a nap would win the Rock/Paper/Scissors contest.
It’s what I’m going to do very soon. My joints are achy and my brain doesn’t want to do any math to make sure the bills are paid, and The Stig is still upset with me for not getting his “salad” sooner. He keeps berating me with things like, “ChirpaDERPaSCREECHahic-hic-hicblrrrCHIRPA!” I am suitably chastised....
But I am still going to nap, even if it’s only for 20 minutes...
I’ve managed to get the bills down to the money orders, so I’m actually doing well. My brain is not working well today. Don’t know if it’s the rain or the walk...*sigh*
Damn! Story of my life.
Maybe that’s why you are “toast?”
Welcome to the Undead Thread for the month of December!
Last month we honored the Scrifice loss of a finger to a wall of text troll.
This month we are honoring/joking about bad dates.
And we silently snuck in this time too.
I think you've got a winnah. Put this on an 'I hate Alec Baldwin' thread and you might have a movie... he reads us...
Sorry about the brain! Sounds like you’ll have a cold weekend, too. We have a sunny day forecast for tomorrow’s various Scouty-things. That reminds me, I need to find out if Bill needs any Merit Badges sewn on before tomorrow morning. They have to be all dressed up for the Mint Hill Senior Citizens’ Holiday Brunch.
I’m cooking some half-price beef. Ash loves me.
They got to eat dinner, too.
If some of them went on five dates with her, she must have been entertaining in some way. Maybe she has a clever line of conversation ...
I was able to order replacement shark balloons for Tom this afternoon, $12 for 2. I charged him for the postage. Frank will be happy - he was very upset when the first one floated away!
I am very much into the utility of balloons.
If you’ll recall, the first flight of the Flying Castle was aided by hot-air balloons. (And jet engines; good source of hot air!)
Tom’s a good source of hot air, too ... but when the new balloons come, I’ll take him to Party City for another $.98 of helium. We’ll need crickets whenever that is, anyway. Dragon Baby was so hungry this evening that she was eating mustard greens!
Ash doesn’t love me anymore - I didn’t give her any of the beef. Only dog food. Also, I let it get cold outside.
You should invest in one of Heinlein’s “Door Into Summer” devices.
I’ve thought of doing that; have a room where I can control the climate completely, such as an indoor pool.
I think I know what would be the most popular hang-out place.
Rum? Sign me *hic* up
I guess a busy Saturday is being had by all! I had to be up early to give Bill a Mapquest to get to the location of the Senior Citizens’ party where the Boy Scouts are working today. They should be home soon. It’s a big thing, hundreds of attendees, and all the Scouts in the area help cook and serve.
That could be. I've already put in a half-day of work, or perhaps a day of half-work.
Now I have to attend to my chores.
Have fun! I’m going to take a nap. Then I’ll have to take Tom to the home of his driver for the Next Scouting Thing. (Bill’s not going.)
Many people would wait to discuss such a weighty matter. Then how much does someone who eats $1,200 worth of food weigh.
I’m in a world record poker tournament today. 200,000 people.
It started @12:30 ET, and I’m in position 12363 out of the remaining 45249 players.
Any wishes for Run-Good would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy. For me FR was down all day.
It was horrible! I actually had to work on my chores.
The answer should have been to move away from overpriced-overtaxed NYC. She could earn a comparable salary elsewhere without a state income tax and half the rental costs.
Why is there even welfare in NYC? Should I feel sorry for the people who live in mansions in California on the coast and then lose them to mudslides or fires and they cry how they have lost everything because they couldn't afford the insurance on their deluxe property?
Move where you can AFFORD to live.
If Noo Yawkers thought that way, the city would be deserted.
It’s so crowded, nobody goes there anymore - Yogi Berra.
Hey, Thanks TC!
I went out in 13,939 out of 200K. I didn’t make any money, but I was happy I stayed in for so long.
That’s quite an achievement!
WOW! Looks like I picked a good time to be off the computer...having FR down for the time I wasn’t posting makes me feel much better about what I didn’t miss! LOL!
