‘Adventurous’ dating through CrazyBlindDate.com

Longer version: CrazyBlindDate is pretty methodical. You select your city, tell the site whether you’d like to go on a solo date or double date and narrow down the times and neighborhoods that work for you. The site then asks you how much notice you need pre-date. I live in New York, and CrazyBlindDate was even courteous enough to ask me if I were an NYU or Columbia student who wanted to be set up with a fellow student…”
