Dime dating is dating for profit. Dime dating is a relatively new approach to dating that primarily employs online dating sites where money, services, and gifts are exchanged for the company of an attractive individual. Dating sites such as WhatsYourPrice.com, MissTravel.com, and SeekingArrangement.com allow users to become attractive members or generous members in which the generous members offer cash, trips, or other arrangements for the companionship of the attractive member.
