Dating: What’s your price?

File this under: “Dating is like prostitution” because Whatsyourprice.com is taking the subtle to the blatantly obvious.  The concept of the website is basically set up to buy and sell first dates. A “generous” person sets a price for how much they are willing to pay to go on a first date with the most attractive people.

Yes, our physical attraction to each other is the primary reason we go on dates in the beginning.  Yes, men generally shell out dough for said dates which may or may not lead to sex.  I’ve thought a lot about the dynamics of dating in this sense. Do we really need a website that puts it out there in this way?

What do you think of this idea?  Marketing genius or another example of how shallow dating can get?

This makes me wonder if we should put a spending cap on first dates.  What you consider agreeing to this?

P.S. If dating is like prostitution, what does that make marriage?

PR – Awwwwwww, him sho shweet…life will NEVER be the same. My kid turns 16 tomorrow. So far I have a ralph lauren shirt (she wanted) and a gift box of cookies. She wants another pair of converse sneakers so I guess I can do that. Gotta think of a couple more things to get her to make the birthday package complete. I thought about roses but when I dropped the hint yesterday in getting a feel for whether or not she might like, she looked at me like I’d grown 2 heads. Gotta teach her though if a guy does it, make sure you appreciate and welcome the gesture. She’s SUCH a beautiful young lady.

So, there’s a ranking of the pay for the top 25 execs in GA. The 25th person on the list made $4.2 mil in 2009, and that person isn’t even a CEO!

Honey let me tell you. I can remember crying when I brought her home from the hospital because she couldn’t take any of the common brands of milk. So I was having to go to St. Joseph because nobody sold it and it was 20.00 bucks a can…of course that was several servings. Still, I remember my sister saying honey grow up because you have years ahead of you and this is NOTHING compared to raising her. I dried my tears, sucked it up and being trucking every since. I remember when I didn’t have a car and had landed a job. I would get on the bus (baby in tow), with bags and backpacks, trek across town to my sister’s (to drop off at daycare) and back on the bus to work. Lord Lord, it’s been a road. I’m not done yet but I can definitely look back and feel so much gratitude for the highs and lows, good and bad, the ups and down. She’s coming along too. Just started her first parttime gig last week. So now she’s making money. My thing to her is discipline around folks you don’t know, keeping with how you’ve been raised and don’t let NOBODY “get” to you…not now anyway. I tell her, you set ‘em (boys) straight now and do it right the first time and you won’t have any problem. I’m talking the no do gooders. Anyhoo enough of memory lane

I know you feel me…you’re right behind me. We’ll break bread and swap stories because you’re going to have some to tell…lol Really, she’s experienced the normal growing pains but I’ve found, establish a foundation early on and but mental blinders on ‘em for all the crap that goes on around them everyday and instill in them that mess, living in mess, entertaining mess, enabling mess…ain’t the norm.

cba – LOL. I got that one wrong…all the way huh? Thanks for the compliment. Believe me when I tell you (as I’m okay with some folks skipping over my posts), I skip a lot of posts mainly because I have a few favs and sometimes everybody is not on the same wave as you…it’s okay but we’re not all the same….you sir though, are one of my favs.

She was a part of their coronation last year and how about some pepper head was calling her name…never mind me standing there. I was like ummm, what’s up with that??? She was like “mama pleeeeease, not now” LOL. He just don’t know, that was another “talk” later that evening. Seriously, I give her rope but I’ve already forewarned. Dreads, no entry, pants below the butt, no entry, no respect, no entry. She’s been asking for a phone and saying she’s the ony person on this earth…her age…without one. Well, I told her, no job, no phone. She asked if I would add one to my plan and she pays me back? I politely replied I’ll add one to my plan when you have the money in hand to pay for it.

What’s happening in the A ?? 30yr old beautiful lady with 5 kids has been missing since Friday. Husband had gone turkey hunting and found out it was the wrong date and returned home and wife is missing. She was going to Walmart to rent a movie. Her car was found earlier today. I think husband needs to hire a lawyer.

mmmm hmmmm….my brother went through this…he was KING HO. He drove a brand new porsche his senior year in high school and for that alone we had chicks camping out around our house, almost 24/7. Not to mention how nice looking he was back then. My mama and daddy caught hell from those chicks. Blocking numbers, hanging up, calling all times of the night, showing up…whew

He’s learned from Susan Smith and that lil chick in Florida who said the nanny took her child, that you have to cry a little bit to have some semblance of credibility.

With the exception of WomenDoItTo pretty much all the rest of you are the shallow examples of why this site will be hugely successful. And by the way Da Man, there really are men out there who fit the description WomenDoItTo gives, and that explains why you are single and likely to stay that way and the man I married isn’t.
