"See my $9 silicon wristband?  That means I'm fiscally irresponsible!  Wanna screw?"
 
2013-09-01 07:12:50 PM
Neat idea in concept, poor in practice.  They're are already too many similar bracelets out there, and even if these were made to somehow be uniquely distinguishable, people won't wear them unless a lot of other people are wearing them.  It'll need some sort of critical mass to really get off the ground.

I'm sorry, but my mood ring says that I won't have an orgasm today. Maybe we could hook up some other time.

Whoever said your orgasm was a requirement?

The big banner over my bed says so. My therapist made it for me. Oh, also that was what the Ouija board told me when I asked.

Now if only I could find a sane man.

Man, I am so glad I'm not single.

You actually have to go outside for this to work?  Yeah, I'll pass.

Those show people you're perpetually single. Knowledge is power.

Because you don't want to have sex any more?
 
2013-09-01 09:00:34 PM
So the idea is: see someone attractive on the street, check out their wristband, then approach

Well there's no way that this idea could possibly go horribly wrong.

If you spend an extra $20, they'll be soaked in pheromones to cancel out the smell of desperation you're giving off.

And this wristband wont?
 
2013-09-01 09:38:55 PM
I need a wrist band for this?  I thought the Cheetoh crumbs on my shirt were a clear indicator of my relationship status, the willingness to mate goes without saying.
 
2013-09-01 10:12:30 PM
I think the waistband is more important than the wristband

So it's like the old "Hanky Code" for straight people? Well, I suppose it might teach some men that there is definitely a difference between apricot and orange.
 
2013-09-01 11:00:31 PM
I used to just look for tattoos

Is there an "I do anal" wristband?

Yes, but you never see anybody wearing them.  They get stretched out and fall off so easily.

Does this work?

FTFA: You know those single women who wear engagement rings so that men won't approach them at bars? This is the opposite of that

You know those creepy men at the bar with a tubby tire and too much cologne? The one's with wives who are "separated" but not divorced?  This is made especially for them.

Gays have been doing this with pocket squares for decades.

/also, $9 for a silicone bracelet?

I use t-shirts.

Oh yea see my weddingband, this means I'm married and I want to die.

Hit the nearest pickup bar.  I've heard a wedding band is a guaranteed way to attract women.
 
2013-09-01 11:11:43 PM
Didn't someone else try this a few years ago? I expect the same results
 
2013-09-01 11:13:26 PM
Wait I just remembered , I went to a "club" that had these kinds of things. Depending on what you were looking for you had a corresponding colored band.

Now in that environment it was a good idea, saved a lot of time.
 
2013-09-01 11:13:30 PM
Since when does anyone care if the other person is single?  Every man I meet these days is married or involved and that doesn't stop any of them from following me into the bathroom at the bar.

The fake engagement ring is really a bad ploy, it's too small to be easily noticeable, and how many guys check out a woman's hands before approaching her?
 
2013-09-01 11:14:05 PM
Your honor, the bracelet shows that she was asking for it.
 
2013-09-01 11:15:11 PM
I'm single and have a vial full of GHB. Farketts are welcome to hang out at the next Chicago Fark party.

TuteTibiImperes: how many guys check out a woman's hands before approaching her?


I do.  I hate cheaters and won't engage in cheating.  Just this evening while coming out of the bookstore I notice I rather attractive woman of the "right age".  I immediately looked at her ring finger, saw the ring, and continued on.  Of course, had there not been a ring, I still would not have done anything because in real life I'm rather shy.  But I do check.

Does "hanky code" work for straight people?  Can you use more than one hanky?

Light blue, dark pink, black velvet...  right side

I have something that tells the world I'm single. It's called an unattractive face. I don't need a 9 dollar wristband and I surely don't need to act like being single is a damn Gap commercial as their website seems to insinuate.

How about t-shirts?

What would make more sense is a phone app that broadcast about 200', with a compatibility checklist.  If someone came into your range running the same app, your phone would respond based on how compatible, from a "Hey, you might want to check this out..." to "Holy crap, leave the car double parked and run immediately in her direction!"

When it gets a hit, it should play "Every Breath You Take" by The Police.
