The Difference Between a $50 & $500 Date

I read our rather lively discussion on “How to Receive $500+ Dates,” and wanted to share my personal experiences as a male user. From what I’ve surmised, the comments were divided into three sections:

The Good

“If I discover the guy is a great guy, he will get back ten times that in gold. I find complainers are time wasters, and its better to be positive and have good energy. That will bring good things in life. If you don’t like the concept of this site, why are you even here?”

The Bad

“If a woman wants $500 for a date she’s only interested in your money, not you.”

The Ugly

“Women DO NOT give a rat’s rear end about penis. They put up with it to get into men’s checkbook AND to randomly rape his brain into insanity.”

So I decided to address all of our blog commenters with the only appropriate solution: putting my money where my heart is, literally.

This past week, I placed one $50 and one $500 bid on two different women to see what I could truly get for my buck. Happily, both ladies accepted, and these are the results. My goal is to prove whether single women on are inherently thankful or just plain entitled.

Get ready to embrace my journey…

My $50 Date

Jessica could be described in one word: firecracker. This little minx was a complete wildcard the entire night. Literally one hour before meeting at The Cosmopolitan casino, Jessica asked if she could bring her friend, Alex. “Sure, why not?” I responded. On any other dating site, bringing a wing-woman only means one thing: she doesn’t trust you. But on WhatsYourPrice, I viewed it as a two-for-one deal: if one falls through, there’s always a chance with the other. Fifty dollars well spent!

We proceeded to have several drinks at The Chandelier Bar. They were a friendly pair: open, honest, and downright crazy–exactly what I wanted. Every sentence was laced with a variation of “s***” or “f***,” but I found it quite refreshing. Most girls care too much about outside opinion. These girls could care less. Brash or not, this duet was quite a lot of fun.

Jessica herself said it best: “I get paid to go on dates with men that I would go out with anyway. It’s a win-win for me.”

Were both of the girls attractive? Absolutely. Was I going to ask either of them on a second date? Probably not.

Two things were very clear:

1.) I wasn’t going to find my future wife with this dynamic duo.

2.) I was definitely going to leave with epic memories.

Once the liquid courage kicked in, I proposed that we rent a limo and see where the night took us. They agreed (who wouldn’t), and the shenanigans continued throughout the evening. I still keep in touch with Jessica, and if I’m ever looking for a night out on the strip, I’ll be sure to text her.

Now that we’ve been acquainted, she has agreed to go on a solo date in a more intimate setting (minus the bid).

We’ll probably date casually, but she isn’t marriage material. Overall, a well-made investment.

My $500 Date

Ashley was a Las Vegas local, and she literally accepted my offer within 2 hours (shocker, I know). I immediately thought to myself: was this response time serendipitous? Or did “Benjamin” make my luck? The hopeless romantic inside me wished it was the former, but my inner cynic sided with the latter. Sure, a witty profile helps land a date. But $500 guarantees results–especially with any gorgeous single. But based purely upon looks, this girl was worth every penny.

Since I was already well-invested into this date, I decided to make reservations at Botero. It’s a pricey seafood joint located inside The Wynn casino, complete with a poolside view. Upon arriving, we shared a sparkling conversation over drinks and appetizers. We later headed to XS, The Wynn’s premiere nightclub, and danced until morning.

Ashley wore a backless, red dress and smelled faintly of Chanel No. 5. Compared to my date with Jessica, Ashley was rather tame. She was charming throughout the night and even shared her previous dating fails.

I was in utter disbelief, as she could literally swoon a guy with a stare. I thought that I was going to meet an entitled Angeleno-type who expects everything to be handed to her on a silver platter. Instead, I found a girl who was tired of dating pompous jerks. We already made plans for dinner this weekend. So as of now, $500 well spent.

Here’s my take after going on two dates at two different price points: WhatsYourPrice is what you make of it. If you go on a WhatsYourPrice date with preconceived notions, you will fail. Always. Money is always spent in any lasting relationship. Serious or not, dating requires some kind of investment.

This user said it best:

“If she’s super beautiful, honest, and kind, maybe later I’d give her the money out of the blue as a surprise. I don’t understand why people dislike the site. I love this site. I’m having the best time of my life dating on here. It’s a great opportunity.”

At the end of the day, time and money guarantee the best results. Whether it’s a $50 fling, or a $500 relationship, a generous gentleman will prevail.
