i guess this makes sense but the main reason i got it right is because the other options were no-brainers! obviously the auto industry isn't doing well and with people really attempting to save money, coffee and takeout are the first to go!

hmm that is weird, I heard it was gun sales. However, my resource on that was not very reliable so I will take your word for it Savvy ;)

I think the logic is..."well, now I have time to date!" nevermind that unemployment doesn't exactly make your stock go up. Warning signs: "I like long walks on the beach, staying out all night and I LOVE it when my date pays, I'm progressive like that!" Also, any preferences for sleeping on benches and dumpster diving on a first date are definite red flags.

People are dumb. Dating requires money so i don't see why this is the best idea. Then again, these are humans we're talking about.

so easy! People are poor and lonely. And the cost of heating up a home this winter is sooo much more expensive then laying next to a warm body.

My reasoning was that it's probably a heck of a lot cheaper to join an online dating service than to hit the bars all the time. Either way, I got it right ;)

well it's not that much of a shocker to me. you'd think that people would want to find love or romance or something to make themselves happy when there's not much else good that's going on in life.
