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

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.”

I’m impressed that you can do this at all with your phone! I sure couldn’t.

I’m about to go take a nap with Jake. We don’t expect to have the baby today ;-).

Im impressed with myself, too! LOL! I knew my phone had internet capabilities, but its not something that comes easy. When i can afford it, i will get a fone that is easier to manipulate.
hopefully, it will be only a few months.
in the meantime, Happy New Year, to everyone!

None of them are "easy" for keyboarding. The best choice seems to be with the "voice-to-text" option.

Having heard your voice, I am assured that your phone will love you, and serve you well.

Happy New Year, 'Face!

You have a funny accent, but investment boards all over the country are interested in people with market savvy.

It's not going to be easy out of 31 threads with Zot as a keyword only 3/4 were not about the current crop of clowns.

No insult intended to clowns.
Ok, yes, there was! Clowns are Evil.

"... out of 31 threads with Zot as a keyword only 3/4 were not about the current crop of clowns"

You have used this expression. I do not think it means what you think it means.

As written, you have said that seventy-five percent of the threads should be acceptable.

I do not think that is what you meant.

I think you meant to say: "...out of 31 threads with Zot as a keyword only 3 or 4 were not about the current crop of clowns"

.

You're welcome. (And no, I am not Doctor Sheldon Cooper).

“It’s not going to be easy out of 31 threads with Zot as a keyword only 3/4 were not about the current crop of clowns.”

Understood.

I’ll grit my teeth and deal with it (and hope it’s a mittens thread). I look to the UT as a place of respite, and a much needed one given how things are salting out with politics. I like to avoid being the official heretic at the kindling and firewood convention.

And you *are* being unfair to evil clowns by comparing them to the current Presidential candidates. ;-)

Moet? How teriffic! How did you know that is my favorite Champagne? Didn’t have any at all this time. Seemed like nothing to celebrate except perhaps having survived 2011. I sincerely hope that 2012 will be better. I couldn’t redo last year ever.

Sometimes my fingers are more whimsical and inventive than I am.

I should let them do the writing.

Just a drive-bt post. Today is the day I put away my Christmas decorations and try to clean house a little. The Stig is depressed @ being home again. He likes the sunny corner in the dining room @ Busdaddys.
Happy New Year once again to all! (i can say that because its still a holiday when the mail doesnt come.)

Howya! 40s and sunny here, happy pets. Time to organize the people going to Sunday School this evening. Apparently there’s been some confusion about whether there were classes tonight, in spite of its being on the schedule all year, so I don’t know how many students I’ll have. If there are only a few, we’ll review.
