Today's Yahoo! Buzz showed "Don't Date Her" as the #5 mover and shaker this week with regards to who is searching for what over at Yahoo! Although I'm unsure as to what initially created this buzz, the site everyone is looking for is Dont Date Her Man.
Due to the overwhelming success of Don't Date Him Girl, Don't Date Her is a variation on the theme, which allows men to publicly post their experiences with cheating girlfriends.
Unfortunately, it's relatively easy to post a complaint on Don't Date Him Girl, which may lead to some issues with abuse and slander. Still, I had to look and see if anyone I knew was on the site - if for no other reason than mere curiosity. Luckily no one was listed.

... which to me would exclude many complaints of cheating partners. Yet I still have to wonder: do these kinds of sites actually change cheating behaviors? Do the people listed on them even know they are there? And do men and women check these kinds of sites before going out on a date with someone?
I'd be interested in hearing from singles who have used Don't Date Him or are thinking about submitting content to Don't Date Her (since the site isn't live yet). What is the motivator for you? Did posting on Don't Date Her / Don't Date Him change anything in your life? Do you (or would you) use Don't Date Her / Don't Date Him to 'check up' on potential dates?
