Singles Nights at Walmart

Once again... you thought you had seen it all

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

Singles Nights at Walmart

If I didn't have spiritual issues with this concept, I might try it out just for fun... Nah.

I don't mind saying that that is by far the dumbest thing I've ever seen.

That's funny! It's actually kind of sad, and I agree with Jonathan that it's dumb, but it is still quite humorous.

*heads over to her local Wal-Mart*

*Oh, wait - I don't have a local Wal-Mart. Oh, well*

I would never, ever think of doing anything like that, [-( but it certainly is an...interesting...way to connect with other people.

=; That is... embarrassing... I wouldn't want to walk around with that red bow announcing to everyone that I'm so desparate. [-(
Besides... considering the level of people my local Walmart attracts that's about the last retail store I'd go to looking for a date. Target is classier than that. 8-[

Oooh, what a sick idea! I wonder who came up with that. Wal-Mart doesn't care if you find a match, they just want to boost their sales. If that ever comes to the US, I'm never going shopping on a Friday!
I never make mistakes. I thought I did once, but I was wrong.

That's a little strange... The bow thing is a good idea though, so that random guys wouldn't be walking up to you, trying to talk. Haha, and then you'd end up just being there to buy some stuff. :-P

I agree. I would not advertise to a store full of complete strangers that I am single. I would try to meet someone on my own first.

*thinks the idea is stupid*

There are much better places to meet future mates...........like on msg boards ;) *is sure most here know who I'm refering to*

Peace Out

People, I so live in Germany! The only draw-back is that I live pretty far away from any Wal-Marts. ](*,)

*must think of a way to get to Wal-Mart*

Unless I misread the article, the bow is to announce your being single.

Ok--I agree with Chandler....... so now I must get a red bow and run to Target!!!!!

I mean after all--if I was so desperate as to go to a cheap department store and tie a huge honking red ribbon on my to notify any available man that I am single, I certainly would be too high class for Walmart.....;)

Yeah, that's what I meant... like, so then people can distinguish regular shoppers from people there for singles night.

gah, I probably said it weird again. ](*,)
