One person is a contestant looking for love. Three players are their potential dates, whom they must ask questions such as "Where would we go on a night out?" or "What is your pet peeve?" to decide whom they would like to date. The catch is that the dates have all drawn a weird quirk slip from the hat and while the contestant was out of the room, shared them with the class (if you have any intentional blabber-mouths or kids with exceptionalities that might not understand why they can't shout it out, you can skip the sharing).
The dates must respond in character for their quirk, and the game ends when the contestant correctly guesses the quirks OR when you save them from themselves and end it or give hints.

I quit posting to Twitter over a year ago (too many eggs harassing women and not enough return on my time), but despite not tweeting, I still browse tweets to try and read the atmosphere during big events (Super Bowl, elections, debates, etc.) One of my favorite things to witness on Twitter is a marketing backfire-- when someone buys a trending topic or tries to start problems and then magic happens and the opposite of what they wanted becomes a trending topic. Take #thanksobama for instance: a Republican group tried to get everyone blaming President Obama for things in a trending topic, but the Twitterverse was not having it and instead turned it into a joke that President Obama even got in on himself.
It happened again today, this time to a special interest group that was trying to undermine public education.
