According to a recent online article, some single women are out there actually getting PAID from online dating!
They’ve developed a master plan to date as many men online in a week as possible, accumulating thousands of dollars in “perks” from their online suitors, such as free dinners, drinks, gifts and even CASH!
Hold up… I changed my mind. Where do I sign up??
I recently ran across an expose about a young single New Yorker who said she was so tired of dipping into her savings to keep up with her Manhattan lifestyle that she developed an online plan that combined dating and dollar bills to supplement her monthly income… (and she’s NOT a hooker).
Details…The 23 year old single Manhattan made $45,000 a year but claims she needed at least an extra $500 to $1000 a month for credit card debt and to continue to afford her expensive $1,475/month apartment.
That’s when discovered Match.com and found it was the perfect site for a broke 23-year-old.
“Before I barely had enough money to pay for food,” said McGonagall. “After using Match.com I found I wasn’t going into debt anymore.”
The young dater began eating out at least five nights a week using a rotation of different guys she met through the dating site and she kept things simple but agreeing to no more than five dates with the same guy.
The investment banker types were thrilled to woo her with extraordinary restaurants like the underground taqueria La Esquina and a Japanese restaurant, Megu, in Tribeca.
McGonagall went from easily spending $500 a month on dinners alone to having someone else dole out an average of $60-plus per night. She also stopped eating lunch and opted for a light breakfast to save even more.
According to our calculations, McGonagall made over $1,200 a month.
Ok so that more than makes up for Match.com’s $50 monthly subscription fee…
Soon the young woman got her friends in on the gig and they decided to make a few “ground rules” for safety’s sake. The women compiled detailed spreadsheets of each guy, which included names, photos, and details from the date’s Match profile.
They also kept track of where the men took them out for drinks and/or meals and kept each other abreast of where they each were going for the night.
Most importantly… they NEVER let guys pick them up at their apartment, choosing instead to meet up at public locations.

When I first read the article… I thought, ‘hell, that’s just regular “A”zz dating” but then those online dudes are disposable so I guess that makes it all the more simple. *shrug*
What do you think of this “Gold digging online” trend?
Smart monthly budgeting or lightweight prostitution?
(and don’t act like this is anything new… some of y’all are on the phone right now begging for a car note!)
