From the prince who brought you “elite sugar daddy dating” site Seeking Arrangements and the elegantly named Whats Your comes a brand new, remarkably progressive matchmaking app: Carrot Dating.
Dubbed the “first mobile app where singles can use bribery to get first dates” (finally!
), Carrot Dating dangles a bevy of pre-programmed options to lure conniving ladyfolk into going out with what I’m sure are the most upstanding of gentlemen.
Women can pick from nice dinners, a tank of gas, skydiving, and plastic surgery in exchange for dating app users.
The only thing more disturbing than founder Brandon Wade’s business model is the fact that he got the idea from his mom.
He is behind the dating auction site Whatsyourprice.com, where users are invited to “bid on first dates with beautiful women” and the popular 'Sugar Daddy' dating site Seeking Arrangement.
The site matches men ('sugar daddies') with younger women who they can shower with gifts in order for them to form 'mutually beneficial relationships'.
The carrot dating app is taking the internet by storm.
And thanks to its premise - it allows users to bribe their way to a date with gifts - it is subsequently being left out in the rain, soaked-through."I think that such an a calculating act of bribery expresses a sense of self-loathing and the fear of rejection.
An online dating app has been attacked as sexist and even accused of encouraging prostitution.
