Dating card examples
SETUP: Separate the white cards (Perks) from the red cards (Red Flags) and place them in stacks on the table where all players can reach them. The player who’s been on the most dates makes a great first Single. THE PERKS: Using what you know about the Single, pick two Perks to create the best date you can for them.
Starting with the player to the left of the Single, each player plays their two Perks and reads the cards out loud to the table.
BLANKS: When a card with a _______ in it is played.
The player who played the card gets to fill in the blank with anything they want.
Or just play until none of you want to go on a date ever again.
In August, a British man was sent to jail after defrauding two women of over £300,000 (5,300) through online dating sites.
He had convinced them that he was a diplomat and that a US marine general had fallen in love with them, causing one woman to pawn jewelry, empty her life savings, sell her car, and take out loans to help this general move to the UK. In 2011, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming “industry” was worth over million, but it’s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate.
Again, both men and women can and have fallen victim to online dating scammers, but women tend to be targeted more aggressively.
Interestingly, the AARP says that men fall victim to these scams more often, but that women are more likely to report the scam.
