NY Woman Uses Dating Site to Get Over $1200 In Free Meals

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 wasn’t 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.”

How convenient for him: He knows what she is AND the price.

Isn’t this really, uncomfortably close to prostitution?

This premise would make a GREAT idea for a chick flick. I’ve seen the genre so many times, I know it by heart. Girl hatches this sinister idea. After dozens of crummy dates looking for a free meal, meets the man of her dreams. Chick falls in love with him. Guy finds out that she was just doing it for the free meals, dumps her. She finds a way to get him back. The walk off together, fade out to smooching. Done! $80 million in gross, minimum, guaranteed. More if it’s Aniston, less if it’s anyone from Sex and the City.

As long as she was putting out it would be OK.

$45,000/ year - (Rent + food) = LOTS of credit card debt.

Someone needs to learn to live within her means.

That’s perfect! I can see it too. You got the basic plot outline correct too. Boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. They use it over and over and over. It’s as standard as verse chorus verse chorus bridge chorus chorus.

HA!

That’s about a third of what I’d spend on dates, in a year when I was single....

...yes, just her half!

Common prostitutes have more integrity than this woman. At least their clients know what they are getting when they transact with each other...

She didn't sleep with them. She decided to date men 5 times or less to ensure no commitment. This is fraud, not prostitution.
