This offline dating service ad raises more questions than it answers

On the public phone at the corner of Canal Street and N. Carrollton Avenue, there's an ad for Love Quest, a “free off-line blind dating service created to inspire romance.” Now, I’m not a single gal, but as the daughter of a flower child and the soul sister of Lisa Simpson, I had to check it out. One doesn’t take her fiancé into consideration when there are unicorns involved.

“After meeting with our talented matchmakers, you and your potential sweetheart will share chocolate and champagne as part of an upcoming art installation devoted to true love.”

“But where do the unicorns come in?!” I asked myself.

Upon my arrival at Gambit HQ, I called the number listed on the poster (504-233-XOXO) in hopes of finding the unicorns, or at least helping my friends get chocolate, champagne and a date. No such luck — just a 1-900 number-sounding voicemail.

The lusty tone on the voicemail made me wonder if unicorns were some sort of secret symbol. I Googled “unicorns dating” and uncovered the truth: a “unicorn” is a single female who attends swinger parties in hopes of scoring a threesome or group sex. She’s called a unicorn because a chick like that is as rare as a unicorn.

Color me disappointed. No unicorns, no chocolate, no champagne — only a threesome.
