New York, NY (PRWEB) January 09, 2012 WhatsYourPrice.com, the first and only online dating website where anyone can “Name a Price” to get a first date with anyone they like, is featured today on the Anderson Cooper show’s “Dating for Dollars” episode.
Launched on March 29, 2011, WhatsYourPrice.com currently boasts over 300,000 registered users and has successfully arranged over 750,000 first dates.
On the show, Dr. Michelle Callahan, a Relationship Expert who is a critic of the dating website says the website is not a dating platform, instead choosing to compare it to an escort service. Three members of the website who were featured on the show disagree with her. The website founder, Brandon Wade, also disagrees and has posted a full rebuttal on his Online Dating Blog.
“Dr. Callahan does not understand how WhatsYourPrice.com works, nor does she understand the purpose of this dating website,” says Mr. Wade who holds a BS and an MBA degree from MIT. “Fortunately, many other relationship experts, dating coaches, as well as the audience of the Anderson Cooper show feel there is nothing wrong with the dating site.”
In an RT interview last year, relationship expert Dr. Darcy Smith said she does not have a problem with WhatsYourPrice.com, and thinks the only thing new on the table is an added aura of honesty.
WhatsYourPrice.com’s policy clearly states:
“I created WhatsYourPrice.com because I was extremely frustrated with spending hours writing hundreds of messages to beautiful women on online dating websites only to get few if any responses,” says Mr. Wade. “WhatsYourPrice.com works just like a Charity Dating Auction, allowing any busy, geeky or nerdy guy like me the ability make an offer and get a first date with any beautiful girl.”
