London, Jan ary 24: A controversial dating website is allowing women to virtually sift through a man-ventory and purchase a man to date - just as they would pick a handbag while shopping online.
Women are encouraged to shop for male companions through an online man-market, where a catalogue of potential suitors is available to browse and evaluate.
Eligible man-products are placed in a shopping bag and eventually checked out if deemed satisfactory although no money actually changes hands.
Checkhimout.com market themselves as an empowering and fun addition to the online dating pool.
"What woman doesn't dream about having a diverse portfolio of men at her disposal? Women are not only receiving full access to our revolutionary "man-market" - they are able to experiment with love in a way that has never been seen before," the Daily Mail quoted Spokesperson for Checkhimout.com Marie Aniort as saying.
As shoppers, women may utilise the service for free while men must purchase credit packages to allow them to interact with the ladies.
However, the romantic relationship is completely at the women's discretion - they choose whether or not they are interested in adding a man to their shopping bag.
In the meantime, men can play the waiting game while they attempt to capture the attention of different female shoppers. (ANI)
