Dating 101: Crazy Blind Dating

"Are you feeling adventurous?” boasts the main page of, a website dedicated to just that – crazy, spontaneous blind dates.

The creators say that although “online dating sites are okay, sometimes you just want to go out immediately, with reckless abandon.”

When I first read about the site, I’m not gonna lie, I was taken back. The idea seemed sorta sketchy – with all the warnings about not putting too much information on MySpace or Facebook because of stalkers and other scary stuff – it seemed a little TOO adventurous for me.

We all know I’m not personally a fan of online dating – I’m more of a fan of the whole “meet cute” philosophy. I got freaked out after a few weeks on because I received one too many messages from men that I’d never consider meeting in real life – let alone establish a relationship with. But, I’ve known several people who have not only dated, but have even married, people they met online.

The site made me realize that dating – in any form – is just one big guessing game. Even if you meet a guy in your Psychology class, you never really know what you’re getting into on that first date. Just because you’ve seen him in one setting – like an extremely boring lecture hall – doesn’t mean you know all about him.

Here’s how works:

1.) Log on to and select whether you'd like to go on a solo date or a double date

2.) Indicate when you'd like the date to happen—dates can be as early as that night—and a little bit about the kind of person you'd like to meet (age, height, body type, education, etc.)

3.) Select a preferred meeting location from a list of local bars and coffee shops

CrazyBlindDate then searches its database of registered users to find a match that meets your criteria. Once CrazyBlindDate finds two compatible daters, both parties receive texts and e-mails with the date logistics. Both daters must reconfirm their availability before the blind date is finalized.

Although I don’t think I’ll be meetin’ up with any hotties from the information superhighway anytime soon, I don’t discourage any of you from giving it a go. The only thing holding you back: The dates are currently available in just a few major cities: Austin, Boston, NYC and the San Francisco Bay Area.

    I was hunted by stalkers on lavalife intimate. They produced hundreds of mens profiles, check the wayout countries and you will see them all. They all have the same height 5.11 and were produced around the same day. They steal photos from other online dating sites and information from the people they talk to. They also targeted the children in my family through their bebo sites. Most of their profiles are in the Gold Coast in Qld, Qld, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney North in Australia. They are crazy.
