Good afternoon, bean sprouts! In celebration of our favourite lady-dating app Dattch’s recent launch in New York City (and at long last, for both iOS and Android), we’ve teamed up with Dattch to bring you a kick-ass giveaway just in time for Pride. All you need to do is leave an image comment on this very post, telling us (preferably with animated gifs!) your feelings regarding your first date with your dream babe. You can tell us what you’d like to do, where you’d ultimately like to see things going, how nervous you are, how cute they are — whatever you want, but please make sure to also tell us in the comments whether or not you are eligible for our prize package!
For what it’s worth, here are my feelings re: first dates:
Now let’s talk about the prize: Dattch is offering our readers the chance to win a pretty sweet setup for the most intense day of Pride. They’re offering VIP tickets to one of the biggest Pride parties in the USA, plus a gorgeous hotel room to crash in afterwards.
Up for grabs:
- 2 x VIP tickets and entry to the biggest party of the weekend: Whitney Day’s Pride Blowout at Marquee
- 1 night stay on Sunday 29th June at Row Hotel Premium Room
To enter, you basically need to be 21 years old and able to be in NYC Sunday night. If you’re not either of those things, you can still post a gif obviously, but please make sure to mention whether or not you’re eligible in your comment!
We will select and notify the winner by 2pm EST on Saturday, June 28.
How To Post a Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo! This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL,” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code:
If you need to upload the photo you love from your computer, try using imgur. You cannot use the imgur link, though. You still have to right click and copy the image URL when you’re on the image page. The link you use should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or something like that.
Be sure that your URL is complete and includes the http:// part, and that the quotes are straight up and down quotes rather than curly quotes. If your image didn’t post, it’s ’cause you did the HTML wrong. We will fix it for you as soon as we can, so don’t post it again!
If you’d like a bit more HTML knowledge or a more in-depth explanation, hit up this here Queer Your Tech on how to embed photos (gifs included).
UPDATE: Congratulations to reader Grace who has won a kickass NYC Pride package from Dattch! Please check your email for more information on how to collect your prize!
