A guy will pay you $25,000 to find him a girlfriend…

If you’ve been using dating apps for a while with no real luck, you know how FRUSTRATING they can be.  And here’s a guy who finally had enough . . . so he’s trying a VERY different route.

He’s a 47-year-old guy named Jeff Gebhart who lives near Kansas City, Kansas.  And he’s offering $25,000 to anyone who finds him a girlfriend.

He put up a website called DateJeffG.com with a video and some info about him.  He’s a successful entrepreneur, he’s in really good shape, and he’s been in a lot of long-term relationships . . . but he’s never been engaged or married.

So if you suggest a potential girlfriend to him and it works out, he’ll send you $25,000.

And after he pays you, he says he’ll also make a $25,000 donation to an animal shelter or other animal charity.

Oh, and you can’t nominate yourself to try to pocket the money . . . women who nominate themselves aren’t eligible.

95% of Conversation Hearts are blank or screwed up…

Sweethearts conversation hearts are on sale this year . . . after disappearing last year when the company behind them switched owners.  But they’re not REALLY back.

Their new owners, the Spangler Candy Company, admitted last month that there would be some hearts this year that came out blank or with messed up messages on them because the printer for the hearts BROKE and couldn’t be repaired in time.

But the situation is WAY WORSE than we thought.

A candy company opened 10 boxes of conversation hearts and found that only 3% of them actually look good, with a clear message printed in the right spot.

65% were blank . . . 8% had a partial print . . . and 24% had unintelligible markings.

The average box has around 25 hearts in it . . . so that means only ONE OR TWO hearts looked perfect.

A kid’s birthday wish was to get picked up from school by Jason from “Friday the 13th”…

Props to this kid’s dad for taking him seriously and not just laughing this off:  A kid in England named Carter Murphy had a birthday about a week ago.  We’re not sure how old he is, but he looks about 9 or 10.  And he had a weird request.

For his birthday, he wanted to get picked up from school by JASON . . . the villain from the “Friday the 13th” movies.

It doesn’t sound like he’s being bullied, or needed protection.  He’s just a big fan.

So his dad got in touch with a special effects guy who agreed to dress up as Jason.

Carter’s dad checked with the school first, and they didn’t want Jason to actually approach the building, for obvious reasons.  So he met Carter around the corner, and his costume was VERY solid.  Now photos of it are going viral.

Carter’s dad says he freaked out and won’t stop talking about it.

According to a new survey, the majority of Americans say they’re cheating on their partner with THIS.


Answer:  Food.  |  Go here for more.

More results . . .

71% of people say they sometimes secretly make unhealthy food choices behind their partner’s back.  And 55% have hidden food from their partner somewhere in the house.

But as unhealthy as we are in secret, I guess we’re just as unhealthy out in the open.  Because 68% of people say their partner has had a negative influence on their healthy eating habits.
