Dating Tip Of The Week: a first date is not an audition for marriage!

Question: would you like an alternative date idea? -> this will randomly pick another two locations that are close by and meet the same parameters.


So I'm thinking of cutting this down and making it much simpler. It will need access to the web (primarily google.ca, now.ca, blogto.ca etc.) But this is the basic framework.
