romantic dopers - look here to find love

Are you hoping for that romantic white wedding dress? Do you want to be gazing into someone’s eyes and whisper “I do” ? Best of all, do you want someone else to pay for it?

Wed at First Sight has the answer to you, and, no

Another great idea, hatched by the masterminds of american civilization.

That is the most ridiculous, absurd and stupid idea I’ve heard since Who Wants to Marry A Millionaire. I mean, didn’t these people learn anything from the debacle that turned out to be?

And have they never watched Love Connection??? Same exact concept, only instead of picking out 3 people who match your profile that you get to review and choose between to go out on a date with, they actually expect you to marry this person! Good grief - with all the horrendous dates people have had off of that show, what on earth makes these Infinity Productions people think it’d work to have them get married???

I hope NO ONE replies to their nonsense so we don’t have to endure actually having it trashing up our airwaves!

And they’re collecting contestants through the <i>Internet</i>! Gee, people never misrepresent themselves on the Net.

I wanted to see the questionnaire, but the “Click here to be a contestant” button wasn’t working, for some reason…


Add one more thing to the list of things I won’t do on a first date: get married.
What’s next; will a TV network choose a religion for people and have them convert on live television?

Was it P. T. Barnum who said, “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people”?

He’s the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armor, shouting ‘All Gods are Bastards!’

I have an urge to make a website with the theme “Who Wants To Date A Pro Athlete?”

I’d take applications online, then set everyone up with everyone else’s number as their “athlete.”

Or maybe I’d use real athletes. John Rocker’s probably got an unlisted number now, darn it. . .

Catrandom, don’t stop trying! I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing you on the show. Let us know when you’ll be on!

Well, I’m sure they did. I wouldn’t be surprised if this company came up with the idea after Fox started advertising “Who wants to marry a multi-millionaire.” And look at all the free publicity that happened after the show, when the couple decided not to remain married!
