It's not really cool to take a girl home to a futon in an 8x10 room, I understand this. But any woman interested in my after she sees my busted 97 LeSabre is probably not going to give a rip about a futon. She probably sleeps on one herself.
How big of a bed? If it is a twin, you can basically rock a day bed with pillows along the wall that makes it couch like. You can do this with a full size bed too...just get some pillows (not the sleep kind...the couch kind) and lean them against the back wall.
Hell, don't bother with the pillows. I spent years of my life treating the bed as a seating area. When I was in college, it was the only option in the dorms...and it was the chosen option in everybody's bedrooms. Even before college if we wanted to hang out in my room it was either the bed or the desk chair...it was just a more crowded room in college. Sure...now I have a full apartment with a couch and shit and guests never see my room (thank god) but with a bunch of roommates and people studying/working/socializing at different times, people would default to bedrooms and the bed was just a couch without a back.
