Sure to get a lot of attention, Carrot Dating launched just recently. Carrot Dating is essentially a mobile app that allows singles to dangle a “carrot” in front of others in an attempt to bribe them into a first date. Will it work? That’s yet to be seen, but with over 45,000 paid users in its first three days of business Carrot Dating is definitely doing something right.
Here are a few things you need to know about Carrot Dating before you sign up…
- CarrotDating.com was founded by MIT grad Brandon Wade, who also founded SeekingArrangement.com and MissTravel.com.
- There are over 20 bribes available on the site which users (usually the men) must buy before they can offer them to their potential dates
- Bribes are separated into five categories: Dining, Entertainment, Gifts, Activities, and Popular
- Once a single offers a bribe, their intended has to “accept” before they’re taken to a “communications” area where they can schedule a bribe exchange and a first date!
- Each profile is approved individually so it takes between 24-48 hours to show up on the site
- There is a membership fee involved to sign up with Carrot Dating that changes based on the length of the membership you choose that’s rated in “credits” – only the initial briber has to pay for credits to unlock the conversation
- If you don’t want to pay for a bribe you can wink or favorite another member to try and get them to reach out to you!
- The app has a strong social media presence on Facebook and Twitter and is available for Android and iPhone as of now
- Carrot Dating has tens of thousands of members in just a few weeks of operation
If you don’t mind the superficiality of online dating based on bribes, Carrot Dating may be for you! It’s easy to get started as long as you’ve got deep pockets and a willingness to put yourself out there.
