HerWay.com: The Sadie Hawkins Dance of Online Dating

The new dating site HerWay.com says it's the Sadie Hawkins of online dating. In other words, women choose whom they want to date. The site allows female members to browse profiles anonymously, while forbidding men from searching. Once a woman decides she likes a guy, her profile is revealed to the man.

The company hopes its strategy will provide women privacy, discretion, and safety. Theoretically this approach could make it easier for women to find suitable dates, rather than deal with a flood of flirty messages, winks, or whatever. Now let's just see if men sign up. By now there's nothing novel about women asking men out, but this approach doesn't even give a guy a chance to show the initial interest. Would you try it out?

Interesting, but certainly not going to lower the angst of dating --- you're still waiting to see if someone else likes you but before you find out, you have to make yourself vulnerable by revealing your own interest. Yikes! Welcome to the new double standard. Hey, men do it all the time so why not women? It's ok for a man to make himself vulnerable but not women? I think maybe both should do it. It depends on the person. You don't think there are some women who are more outgoing than some men and some men who are more shy than some women? I admit if I was a woman I would enjoy holding onto the power also but fair is fair and this is the twenty first century after all.

Umm don't women generally choose their dates? Even if someone approaches you, if you're not into it you're free to say no, right? Honestly, I sometimes think these gimmicks are just way out of hand

... what guy would ever want to join this site? I'd worry the pool would be all men who aren't assertive, but maybe that's not the reality.

I have to agree, I think this is a good idea. I too like when guys show interested, but I'm over the whole wink and flirty messages...
