Ever spend $80 on a blind date and you knew it wasn’t going to work fifteen minutes into meeting? Me too…a few times. These dates can get time consuming and expensive pretty quickly. With Wingman Cards you get a nice scouting report through Facebook to avoid such blind-date-mishaps.
I was talking to a guy last week and had to give him a free Wingman Card pack after the story he told me:
“I went on a blind date with this lady who not only picked one of the most expensive restaurants around but then decided to order two bottles of wine. The worst part was that she was pretty annoying. She kept on doing this thing with both her hands that made her look as if she was thinking very deeply…and I assure you she was not. Anyways, normally I don’t do this but when the check came she goes, ‘Do you want to split it?’ And I quickly said ‘yes’. It was still sixty bucks but at least it wasn’t $120. She gave me her number but I never used it.”
If you meet someone with a Wingman Card you’ll often have friends in common, which is visible on Facebook through the “mutual friends” section. Before you plan that first date, don’t be afraid to get a scouting report from the mutual friend. That way you’ll know what she’s like and if you really want to go on a date with her.
Another way to get a scouting report is by checking out all her pictures and her profile information. Is she into horses? Cool. Is she into Satan? Not cool. You can also see how she acts in public with the 300 pictures she has with friends. Is she so drunk that she is lying on the bar floor? Not cool (for most of us). Or is she smiling with friends? Cool.
Use a Wingman Card and you’ll get a great scouting report. If you don’t think it’ll work out save yourself the $80 and instead of going on a date hang with your buddies, buy a six pack for $10, and watch a game. Wingman Cards win again.
