A website that encourages men to bid on women they want to date claims to have 50,000 Canadian members and has released data on how much its clients in various Canadian cities are willing to pay.
Male clients of Whats Your can, as “generous men,” offer “attractive women” members a dollar amount in order to set up a meeting.
Men in Edmonton pay $289, on average; in Calgary, $265.
The site-wide average is $160, according to the survey.
(Women can’t bid on men.)When a woman accepts a price, a chat window opens for the two to set up a time to meet; the money is exchanged at the conclusion of the date.
