Disclaimer:Although The ManBank expects daters to adhere to The ManBank Dating Code of Conduct,
we accept no responsibility for dud dates.

The ManBank has many happy customers, but we’d like to particularly thank the daters below who have volunteered to write down their experiences.

I’d been dateless for months and more than just a little frustrated. Was I to be another victim of the New Zealand man drought? It wasn’t until I opened my ManBank Easy Dater account that I discovered just how much fun dating could be! My calendar is no longer empty and drab, it’s chock full of excitement. I can set how many dates I want and the friendly ManBank Staff make sure that I always have a great date any night or day of the week. Thank you ManBank you’ve saved my dating bacon!

PR/Communications Rep, Northland

‘I used to be too shy to date. Often I’d be passed over for my more extroverted friends. But then I opened my Once-Is-Never-Enough Dater account at The ManBank. They took all the embarrassment and extroverted friends out of the equation. Now I just turn up and there’s always a hot, fun, interesting date waiting for me. I’ve never had a dud from The ManBank. This is the best investment I have ever made!’
Coco Agnew
Policy Analyst, Ministry of Health, Karori

‘I met Angela Aphrodite Troy, The ManBank CEO, out socially recently. I chewed her ear off about the lack of women in town. I told her how I’d been out earlier that week, had money in my pocket and I’d made an effort in the hope that I might stumble across some lovely ladies. But I was bitterly disappointed. Seemed to me all the ladies were at home, watching dvd’s and crying into their duvets about this man drought tosh. So, you can imagine how excited I was to meet Ms Troy and hear about The ManBank. I deposited myself on the spot and can’t wait to begin.’
Jake Collingwood
Builder, Berhampore

‘I was terrified when my friend opened up a Risk Taker account for me at The ManBank. I’d never really done the dating thing much before and I was really nervous. But my first date from The ManBank, was awesome. We drove to Martinborough for an afternoon and had heaps of fun. I remembered Cleo Matahari – PA to The ManBank CEO’s great advice and really made an effort to enjoy myself. I now wonder why I was so pig-headed about not dating in the past. If you’re a bit unsure, don’t sweat it! The ManBank is for you.’
