NY Woman Uses Dating Site to Get Over $1200 In Free Meals
YouBentMyWookie.com ^ | November 30th, 2011

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 wasn’t going into debt anymore.”

-snip-

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.

$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.

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

Tax free. Unless the IRS and the NY tax authorities read this article, and then she’s in trouble, since they’ll probably consider it to be a business.

Fraud whether or not they got sex, because any decent guy probably thought there was a chance of a relationship with a real person, not just a business transaction where she gets five dinners and he gets her chosen form of compensation for his money.

It does say she was tired after each evening.

Sounds as if she was. We need some photographic evidence here.

Your reading skills must be a whole lot better than mine because I didn't see that in the article, but I did see she found it "exhausting." I don't think it was the walks from the car to the restaurant that did that.

Note to guys: If you are looking for sex, go to an escort website.

If you are looking for love date someone with low financial expectations; which means don’t set high ones.

No, nothing much will change. Match.com is already filled with women doing the same thing. They just aren't admitting it publicly.

Frankly, it's not likely that she dated many "decent" guys from match.com. There have been several studies that estimated over half of the men were married and almost all of the men were merely looking for a "quick date".

Long-term relationships do happen on match.com, but they aren't typical.

Why? I imagine it would be, if she was doing anymore than having dinner with someone. Do you think all the men that asked her out, wanted sex?

Good places to find women like this is church groups, volunteer work, agricultural exhibits at county fairs, rodeos, conservative political picnics and like-minded cause gatherings.

Worst places are bars, rock concerts, tony restaurants in big cities and liberal political gatherings.

My exposure to that is limited, since I'm married and not looking for something on the side. I have worked with people who met and married on that site, but if a married man I knew was cheating there, I'm sure he would not tell me. If the dates were with married men, then they both got what they wanted, I suppose, and both participants in that business transaction disgust me.

I would think that going out on 5 dates a week would be exhausting. Even if you just got ready, got picked up, went to dinner, made casual conversation, and then got dropped off at home.
