Last week, online dating was in the news as Spreadsheet guy’s story went viral. He’s since apologized for the embarrassment it caused the women, and himself in the process.
This week, the official launch of MissTravel.com, whose tagline is “Travel Dating for Generous and Attractive People” is spreading like wildfire. In my opinion, this site goes beyond the old-fashioned “Mile High Club” membership. Adamant about not being an escort service, founder Brandon Wade tells ABC News, “There’s 2.6 attractive women for every one generous man.”
Does this mean there’s so much of the world to see, with so very few men to share the experience with?
What happens when you arrive in Paris and your man gets abusive? Are you stuck at Charles de Gaulle Airport without a return ticket home? Could you insist on having your own room if it’s truly for plain companionship, with no benefits associated?
Here’s their one-minute video that describes the service. Already over 10,000 people have signed up.
Do you think this is an escort service disguised as a dating site or a terrific site to find a travel companion? Is it a marketing gimmick? Would you sign up?
