All but 1 were the people I asked for dates matched their photos on the profile (the other did not look like the pics posted on the profile and had to report the profile as a scam).
A new dating site has hit the Internet, and despite its efforts to seem more than red-light district, it looks to me like a thinly veiled escort site. And once you get past the cleavage, the "Interested In" sections, which include "Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby," "Married Dating/Discreet Affair," and "Casual/Intimate Encounter" also insinuate there'll be more after a first-date dinner than dessert. Is Whats Your Price just a smart, efficient way to meet people, or is it an escort service disguised as a dating site?
Founded by Brandon Wade Seeking Arrangement.com, Whats Your calls itself "the e Bay of online dating." The site likens its buy-a-first-date concept to charity date bidding, addressing the "p" word in its PR kit by emphasizing, "There is absolutely no sex involved." The concept and the members, however, paint a different picture.
All dating apps and websites have their intricacies and quirks, but they boil down to a singular concept: liking or not liking someone based on a short bio and handful of pictures. Then there’s Whats Your Price, a date-auction website that I just had to try out for myself.
It's pretty much as close to judging a book by its cover as you can get. I asked Whats Your Price's spokesperson, Ethan, how this whole thing differs from an escort service.
The men, aka "the generous members," bid on dates with the women, "the attractive members," who have profiles similar to other online dating sites.
