eHarmony App Helps You Get Out Of Bad eHarmony Dates!

Reuters recently reported that dating web site eHarmony has created a new iPhone application called the Bad Date Rescue App.

The App allows you to program your phone to call you at any scheduled point during a date and plays a scripted recording to help you get out of the date. The recording pauses, allowing you to play along with the script and show off your acting skills, which probably aren’t very good because if they were, you would have just made up a plausible excuse to get you out of the date, without requiring a prerecorded voice that your date can’t hear pretending to have a conversation with you.

Here are some examples of the kinds of calls you can get according to Reuters:

“Scripts are available giving the reason for the call, such as a neighbor calling about a leaky pipe; a mother informing that a sister just had a baby; or a boss saying he needs help immediately.”

1. What's wrong with the traditional "go to the bathroom and pull the fire alarm" move?

2. Ha--I think video everywhere is the problem...if small businesses can catch robbers

robbing the joint, they can catch a schmuck pulling the alarm.

What ever happened to having a wingman--or wingwoman--call you about a half hour, forty five minutes in, and wait for the "cue" word--like calling the person "Skippy" or "Shorty" if they need an "out" and then having the friend, rather than a pathetic app, give you the excuse?
