Thanks to MIT Alum Brandon Wade. His new dating app, Carrot Dating, is currently taking a lot of flak for the platform's controversial concept: bribing your way to a date. “Any beautiful girl can be convinced to give you a chance, all she needs is a little incentive," says Wade.
And of course, ad imagery like the one above certainly isn't helping.
Wade is no stranger to controversy though, as he is also the mind behind other dating sites such as SeekingArrangement.com, which claims to be "the leading sugar daddy dating website."
Carrot Dating boasts it already has about 30,000 users signed up since it launched. Per the company's press release: “There’s only one method of manipulation that has stood the test of time: bribery. It is the best way to motivate animals to do exactly what you want. Now, with the help of a new mobile application, singles can motivate men and women to go on dates.” Supposedly, the app enables people to “motivate” each other to go out for the first-time by offering free meals and drinks, a tank of gas, or even plastic surgery payments.
Wade asserts that “it’s all about breaking the ice and having some fun. I really believe dating is superficial anyways. If you don’t get your foot in the door, you won’t even have a shot. This helps people get their foot in the door.”
