People do some crazy stuff in the name of love, like start a website offering people $10,000 to find you a date.
Dateren.com was started by “Ren” who happens to be a Harvard business school graduate who recently moved to Birmingham, AL. He’s almost 30 and identifies as an ENTJ on the Myers-Briggs scale. If you don’t know what the Myers-Briggs test/scale is, you’re probably under-qualified to date Ren.
All you have to do is fill out an online form, submit some pictures of your friend and give Ren some details about her personality and voila! If Ren dates your friend, you get 10 grand. Spoiler: you can’t collect the money for yourself. Also, Ren has to date your friend for at least 6 months.
Ren also asks that this lady “knows the difference between ‘Astronomy’ and ‘Astrology’.” So he’s really not asking for a genius here, just someone with a rough understanding of root words.
Ren’s Tinder game must be pretty abysmal if he’s got to put a bounty on finding a girlfriend, but, ya know, more power to him for being willing to put up the cash.
As a betch, I actually kind of endorse his efforts. First, it’s practically betch code to help your friends date guys in finance so they won’t have to work forever. Secondly, earning 10k for doing little to no work and getting Jessica to stop complaining to you about being single AF sounds like a win-win to me.
