I’m sure it’s worked at least once. I bet there are enough people out there desperate and lonely enough to clamor for any attention they get, even if it’s nameless and faceless. You can go on a ton of dates all the time if you have no standards and simply don’t want to be alone for the night.
It’s a lot like people (women) who complain about wanting to get married. I tell them they could go out and get married in about five minutes. I’m sure there’s enough men who need greencards, or who are in love with you from afar or are just plain lonely who would take you up on it. They always scream, “No, that’s not what I want!” Oh, you want a quality relationship with a great man who you’re in love with? Then you’re gonna have to shut up about it taking time. And maybe focus on finding that great guy instead of focusing on getting married.”
We’re all free to settle at any time!
