Win $1,500 to Go on 15 First Dates


Preparing for a first date is always an exciting and nerve-racking process. We know it takes a lot of courage to put your heart on the line and take a chance on someone new. On the other hand, it could be the beginning of many beautiful moments to come. Practice makes perfect, especially when it comes to first dates. That’s why we want to give you a helping hand in shaking off those first-date nerves and making more magical moments happen.

Just in time for cuffing season, we want to pay someone $1,500 to go on 15 first dates. The selected winner would be required to find the dates (via a dating app or another avenue) and document their journey, then report back on their experience. Who knows, maybe the winner will find their person throughout their journey and seal the deal with a Shane Co. engagement ring!

What We’re Looking For

The applicants we’re looking for must be single and ready to mingle (that’s right, cheaters never win, and winners never cheat). If you’re selected, you’ll be asked to simply secure 15 dates with 15 different partners over the course of five months. The winner may find potential partners in person, via dating apps, on blind dates, at bullfighting competitions, or any other method of meeting. Dates don’t necessarily have to be strangers, but they must be 15 different people.

First-date locations can include anything from candlelit dinners to a coffee shop rendezvous. All you have to do is document each date by taking a photo during the outing and filling out a brief worksheet about your experience. Don’t worry if you hit it off with one of your dates; second dates are strongly encouraged! They just don’t go toward your final count.

Jokes aside, we encourage the winner to review safety precautions before attending any dates. The safety of all participants is our top priority, so be sure to catch up on best practices before entering our contest. We encourage the winner to plan their dates in public places and enact buddy systems and backup plans so they’re adequately prepared for any situation. 


  • Applicants must be single.
  • Winner must be willing and able to secure 15 dates with 15 different partners over the course of five months.
  • Your dates do not have to be strangers, but they must be 15 different people.
  • The winner will be required to take a photo to document each of the 15 dates and fill out a brief worksheet outlining their experience.
  • Applicants must be 18 years or older and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to apply.

Disregarding any of these requirements is grounds for immediate disqualification.

    My three grown children have their own lives and my grandchildren are in good hands, and now it’s time for me to spread my wings and wanting a lifetime partner.

    I’m a sincere person who lived through ups and downs and won’t settle for less. My heart is kind and willing to meet someone who can fulfill my need.

  • Imagine trying to find a date when you’re 68 years old! Dating sites either give you people that look like your grandmother or that lave hours away! Frustrating is an understatement!

  • I enjoy a challenge and being an ex banker after 30 yrs decided to get my real estate license and concentrate on my family. Life is an adventure. Live it to the fullest. Having someone to share it with is icing on the cake.

  • I have been out of the dating scene for quite some time due to fighting cancer. I will be 2 years cancer free in February and I'm ready to mingle.

    I am a very outgoing and energetic person. Going through cancer made me appreciate and enjoy life even more. I love trying new things and staying active.

    I have never met a stranger and would love the opportunity to meet new people and write about my dating excursions.

  • 60 year old beautiful God fearing intelligent woman. Single, no children and only child. Very spontaneous, funny, loyal person. Love to meet a champion to wine and dine with. Single and ready to mingle. The sky is the limit.

  • I have been single for almost a year and a half. I’m 31 years old, once married and divorced, with 2 children that live with their father because they are, unfortunately, not biologically mine. Dates make me nervous to the point of nausea. So much so that I’ve never been on one, except when already in long term, committed relationships. I’m an introvert, with occasional extrovert tendencies.
