How I was nearly seduced by Grouper, the biggest sham in online dating

A month ago, I was approached by Jerry Guo, ostensible Silicon Alley wunderkind who’d turned $400 in transit money into Grouper, a profitable dating startup. He guaranteed me a great time with “3 real girls.” Update: Guo apologizes (sorta) The whole site’s a lie. I was interested in the idea of a group date, even as a funny diversion. It’s a bizarre idea: a three-on-three blind date. So sure, why not? It’d go horribly, of course—but it’d be something to write about, and a novel take on online dating, for a change. So I gave Jerry a “Sure, why not” response, and assumed the rest would be smooth from there. Besides, it sounded kind of fascinating! At least in the way Jerry described it:
