I’ve Been on 400 WhatsYourPrice Dates – My Top 5 Tips

East Coast-based business owner Giovanni V. exclusively dates on WhatsYourPrice – and he has several reasons why. Although he’ll try other dating apps for a month or so, he always comes back to WhatsYourPrice because he likes how straightforward the site is, which leads to less, as he says, “drama.” Thanks, Giovanni, we try!

Throughout the years, Giovanni has been on 400 dates on WhatsYourPrice. On the site, he’s had everything from awesome dinner dates and tearing up the dance floor to a committed year-and-a-half-long relationship. Recently single, Giovanni is back on WhatsYourPrice and has been making some great connections. We caught up with Giovanni to ask him the top 5 things he’s learned throughout his time dating on WhatsYourPrice.

1) WhatsYourPrice may not be a traditional dating site, but that doesn’t mean it can’t lead to a long-term relationship (if that’s what you’re looking for!)

Our dashing dater advises that you go into WhatsYourPrice dates with an open mind, and manage your expectations. WhatsYourPrice is all about dating IRL, which opens a wide realm of possibilities. One date could be all it is, or maybe you’ll end up developing a relationship like Giovanni did. Here at WhatsYourPrice, we’re committed to helping you find epic first dates, but if you and your match hit it off, there’s no reason this can’t blossom into a longer relationship off the platform.

2) You never know what kind of connection you’ll find on WhatsYourPrice

Giovanni emphasized that whether you go on one date or many, you can meet some amazing people on WhatsYourPrice. In addition to his long-term relationships as well as the more casual dates he’s had from the site, Giovanni has also made several long-lasting friendships from the site!

3) There are different adventures for everyone on WhatsYourPrice

Sometimes, you might get on WhatsYourPrice simply because you want to spend time with someone who has shared interests, like comedy shows or kayaking. Other times, maybe you log in to the site because you’re hoping your adventurous first date might turn into a longer relationship. Both of these reasons are totally valid! 

Giovanni told us that one of the reasons he loves WhatsYourPrice so much is that he doesn’t feel pressured to be looking for any one thing. While other dating sites are meant either for people looking for something casual or for those searching for something long-term, Giovanni said he feels that WhatsYourPrice allows you to come as you are. You don’t have to be looking for anything specific – just see where the connection takes you!

4) It’s OK if you’re not feeling a strong connection after your first date

Hey, it can’t happen every single time! However, even if this is the case, respect the other person’s time and effort by being forthright and honest with them. Don’t just ghost! Nobody likes a Casper. In fact…

5) In all interactions, be respectful

This is the case on all dating sites, of course! On top of not ghosting before the date, it’s also important to respect the person you’re out with. Don’t spend too much time on your phone, and make an effort to get to know each other.
