What moves this online dating operation apart is that users are separated into two odd categories. Men are defined as ‘Generous’ users who splash the cash to attract a capacity match, while women are classed as ‘Attractive’ members, and have the power to assent to, decline or counter cash offers.

Money is exchanged on the go out with and the ‘generous’ member also pays a percentage of the final price to the website.
The plot is also the perfect venue to scam potential dates.
One unlucky-in-love alcohol writes: “I will not pay any dates at beginning of meeting. I will pay as you leave and pay hansom cabs as well; too many turn up, get paid, disappear to bathroom and don’t come ago.”
