No payment meet and fuck sites
It is: An app that admits ambitious, successful users only after an extensive screening period. Who you actually find: An Ivy League banker who uses the word "handouts" unironically.
I'm already starting to feel like I've had enough of this experiment.After a quick search, I get the measure of the women on the site."My preference is for a man who is much younger than me with rugged features," says one. This is a way of paying someone a compliment without typing out the words. And over the course of a week I get almost 100 replies, messages and propositions.Many of them are middle-class, many have young children.And all of them are looking for an opportunity to betray their spouses. But I wanted to find out what sort of woman uses such a site. It is: An app for matching up users in airports and during flights.
Who you actually find: The stalker you didn't know you had. Who you want to find: An attractive, educated progressive with lofty career aspirations.

It may sound like an unpleasant niche website for a handful of amoral people to whom wedding vows never meant very much.
But it claims to have more than 100,000 members in the UK.
