On WhatsYourPrice.com, dates go to the highest money bidder. Yet it's not prostitution...
Just when we thought dating services couldn't get more wacky than the one that tests your DNA for compatibility, someone had to create a website that allows members to bid on attractive users for a first date. If you're attractive, single, and broke, consider creating a profile on WhatsYourPrice.com. Name your price, wait for the offers to come in, and haggle with the bidder until you've reached a deal. On your first date, pick up the cash and hope that the person is as cute as he is generous. It's every girl's dream come true! How to Have an Irresistible Online Dating Profile
According to the website's About section, people have plenty to gain by joining this dating site instead of of the conventional ones. For one thing, its user base is populated by "those who have high standards," who are "beautiful and attractive," and who are "generous." Although anyone can identify as a bidder or as an attractive user, the former category is dominated by males while the latter is filled with females. If you're a woman, you no longer have to worry about weeding through creepers for your Prince Charming. Instead, you'll choose from a selection of guys who sincerely want to be with you. Nothing says "be my wifey" like a $100-dollar bill, right? 8 Things Guys Should Omit From Their Online Dating Profiles
Once an offer is accepted, the site will unlock the messaging capability to let the two users plan out their date. The bidder will pay the website a percentage of the final price and will hand over the rest on the first date. It's obvious what the "attractive user" has to gain from this process, and the bidder can rest assured knowing that he won't be stood up. 10 Reasons to Give Online Dating a Try
As a bonus, WhatsYourPrice.com provides an array of first date tips and ideas. Go to Chuck E. Cheese to see who can win more prizes. Go karaoking. Honor your favorite culture by dressing in their clothes and eating their cuisine. Build a sand castle! On a less whimsical note, it also advises bidders to pay 50 percent at the start of the date and 50 percent after it. Exchange cash only once you meet in person, and not before. Be financially savvy: if someone requests payment by Western Union, report him, and remember to accept cash instead of checks.
