Marry, Date, or Dump?
Marry, Date, or Dump is a game that has been played since the 1700′s (not really). The object of the game is to select, out of three hypothetical suitors, which you would choose to marry, date, and dump. Easy enough. This game has typically been reserved for ladies, but our male readers may participate too. Just pick who you want to be friends with or whatever. I’ll post my picks, and let us know your answers in the comments!
