is a dating site that sells first dates.
‘Attractive Singles’ receive bids on first dates from ‘Generous Singles’ and can choose to accept them in return for their time. The selling point for ‘Attractive Singles’ being that you get paid to go on a date that could potentially be more of a serious bet than on one where you’re not getting paid. And for ‘Generous Singles’, it’s that there’s more of a chance you’ll actually get to go on your ‘high standard’ date.
Potential implications of themes such as ‘gold-digger’, ‘shallow’ or ‘desperate’ influencing the course of the ensuing relationships aside, WhatsYourPrice introduces an interesting thought of monetary benefit into the casual dating sphere. Dating becomes a paid job, and not one where you’re a escort. Though the potential of this becoming a marketplace to regulate that industry is an interesting one as well.
WhatsYourPrice is a patent pending site from the makers of the InfoStream Group Inc. Founder Brandon Wade also has the classy titles SeekingArrangement.com and SeekingMillionaire.com under his belt.
But all sarcasm aside, we’ll give WhatsYourPrice a nod for executing a classless idea in what looks to hope to be an innocent, profitable transaction. And as they’re quick to mention, people do already pay for dates at charity auctions around the world. But then it’s not such a rare story is it, attractive’s the product and people are paying.
