My friend Jen on the Edge sent me a link to this article this morning and I simply HAD to share it. There is so much wrong with this method for searching for a mate (and apparently this man) that it is at least 10 life lessons waiting to happen.
The link I am sharing is to MarcEnsign who writes social media blogs. According to his preamble he actually received the email in question out to a bunch of people met at a networking event. click here to read Marc’s post. Read below for a piece of the email in question.
The email is question includes some interesting details about the surgeon who sent it, a list of what he is looking for in a mate and a manifest of rewards he is offering to anyone who can find a woman who meets his criteria and gets this guy a date with her.
I anticipate some good comments.
This is the section about compensation for anyone who finds a match for him:
please send me the parameters and picture of the potential setup, so i can say if i’m interested, before you start introducing us (otherwise it’s kind of awkward then saying that i’m not interested). if interested, i’m offering the following “thank-you gifts” for your kind help:
- first date set up: $100 cash
- second date (with either same person, indicating a better match, or a 2nd person): +$200 or free latisse worth $300
- third date (again can be w same person): + $300 or free botox worth $500
- 4th date (w same or diff person): + $400 or free Juvederm injections worth $900
- 5th date (same conditions): + 500 cash or 1 eye free LASEK worth $2000:)
Recently I heard of a family being awarded the use of a beach house for the week as a “thank you” for the owner being set up with a friend of the wife. Is this a common practice? Should I step out of the search and start setting people up? Is it that lucrative a business?
