I actually had a guy contact me a couple of years ago. Styx was playing a local gig, he wanted to go and didn't want to go by himself. If I hadn't been sick, I might have gone, still regret feeling too awful to go, but I think this is the same type of thing. You don't have a date for a specific event or you just want to get out, maybe you aren't the type of person to go to a movie alone. It is an opporunity for a sort of no-risk no-fault blind date situation without the pressure of the blind date.

I don't know how many people are taking advantage of it but as Wazhiz noted, sometimes you go out with someone here and they are better as running buddies than as boy/girlfrends.

I took a break from this site and when I came back, I noticed that there was a new "date night" feature. I was wondering if anyone has had any success using it. Has anyone ever tried this particular feature and if so, how did it go?

Yeah.. I tried it. I put my profile on there and sure enough on Friday night 4 hot women appeared at my door. Then the neighbor's dog started barking and woke me up from my nap...

would probably use it from time to time if it was "Get a date this Weekend!" instead of Friday. I work every Friday night.

I check out the guys that sign up from time to time but thus far none have really caught my eye.

I would be more inclined to sign up if I could also see the women that had signed up.

Why would you want to see the other women? Do you follow the other sheep? Do you have self esteem issues? If you're going to do something do it. Damn what other people do..

I actually tried it out this past week. Was on there all week. Got contacted by one guy, who's profile was completely opposite of mine - probably didn't read mine. So, it didn't really do anything for me.

Scotlas, you are a very pretty woman, and I'm sure there are a lot of guys out there who would like to date you.
Can I make a suggestion? You would look really fantastic with bangs, you have a lovely face, and bangs would frame it so nicely. Have you ever considered them? I know that you didn't ask for my advice, but you did say that you felt your pictures could be better, and looking at them, I think perhaps all you need is a bit of a change in style that really shows off your features, and some new pictures and you will have guys emailing you like crazy.
You have a great personality, and seem to be a very bright, kind woman. Just a little 'girly' advice from one woman to another.
Best of luck!
