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?
