San Diegan Tim King likes Free Flight for a date. King was inspired to embark on this dating marathon — 30 dates in 30 days — after downloading Details Matter, a new mobile app launched four months ago by San Diegan Mark Wills that provides a public forum and database of local date ideas. Check out Date 19 for Tim's blog on Free Flight.
