French Dating Site Wants You to "Adopt a Guy"

French Dating Site Wants You to "Adopt a Guy"

I caught up with a friend visiting from Paris this weekend, and he revealed that he has a new girlfriend. "How did you meet?" I asked, hoping for a good story. Luckily he had one. They met on the dating site AdopteUnMec.com (translation: Adopt a Guy). The site, which is free for women, resembles a catalogue of eligible bachelors. Men set up profiles, which read like product pages, and they can only communicate with a woman if she chooses them. Women like it because they aren't spammed by tons of guys, and guys like it because they know a woman is somewhat interested right away.

Woman can choose among different styles of guys — are you shopping for an intellectual, an adventurer, or maybe a bohemian? You can also specify the guy's fashion style: hippie? Rock? The bonus pack option lets you select specialty options like vegetarian, tall, tattooed, or a guy who can cook.

HerWay.com, a new site in the US, is trying this concept too, calling itself the "Sadie Hawkins" of online dating. But I prefer the French version's cheekiness. And while it's clearly objectifying men, it's fun to see the guys sell themselves.
