People have been paying online dating sites to flirt and flirt a lot.
Now, they’re turning to the world of virtual dating to try and get laid.
A company called Aptura Inc., for short, is testing a new service called Auctions Live, in which people can pay to get a chance to flirt.
“You can have a chance of meeting somebody that you really like and maybe you get a little bit of an impression,” said the company’s founder, James Bittner.
“You can see who the person is and that person, that’s really all you need.”
Online dating is a booming industry, but for many, the experience can be rough.
There’s a lot of stress involved.
The ads for people who want to pay to be friendly and have a good time aren’t always clear, or even very good.
And a lot people don’t have the patience or the desire to put in the time to do that.
But Bittler is trying to change that by helping people pay for the time they’re spending with someone online.
“We have this idea that it’s a one-way street.
You pay, and they have to spend the rest of the time with you,” he said.
So how does the system work?
People can sign up for an account on Apturas Live.
Once the process is done, they get to pick their dates and set up a payment plan.
Each person has their own profile that shows how much they want to spend, and how many of their friends they’re looking for.
Bittner says Auctions live has a few basic features.
He’s not sure if it will be as popular as the popular Tinder, but he hopes it will grow in popularity.
“I think it’s going to grow as much as Tinder.
Tinder is like, $200 per month.
Auctions is $1,500 per month,” he explained.
“If you’re looking to start a new relationship and you have a million bucks you’re going to want to use it.
So I think it’ll be a little different.”
Aptura is looking for people with “very attractive personalities,” Bittber said.
That means someone with an appealing body type, good looks, and a sense of humor.
It’s also a great way to find new people.
“It’s not necessarily for singles.
You don’t want to have to be dating a couple of people and then find a couple more people.
It just happens when you find a few people who you really, really like,” he added.
So far, the company has raised $200,000 to fund its pilot program.
It has three months to raise more.
It’ll start with a handful of people, but eventually, it hopes to get as many people on board as possible.
