WASHINGTON POST - Sep 13 - When Stephen Bennett realized his life had become so busy that he never had time to meet new people, he decided to create eTourage, an online dating site focused on setting up group dates. On eTourage, users create a profile and recruit their single friends to be in their eTourages. Users can then search for girls or guys. After they get to know each other through the site, they can ask each other out and simultaneously ask the members of their eTourages if they'd like to go on the group date, pairing up members from the two users' eTourages.
