I'm the female host of Hurry Date. There's also a male host. Hurry Date is three minutes with each person. We have about 25 men and women tonight. The girls stay in one spot and the guys rotate--they follow the letters of the alphabet but the drunker they get the less they remember that. Everybody has an ID tag and a number. If you like 'em you just circle "yes" on their scorecard. In 48 hours you get an E-mail with all the people who said yes to you. We had one guy who ended up circling all the wrong numbers. Another friend of mine, a guy, he ended up getting 11 matches. He had so many women that he was dating them on Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night, Sunday afternoon. We had a guy handing out cards to each of the women telling them that he was a Christian, but at the end of the night he and this girl were up and down each other's shirts--they had a howdy-do time for all to watch. He was an oversexed Christian, I guess. I just host and do not participate. I am single, and I do meet tons of people, but I'm not dating--I'm too busy hosting singles.
