Entrepreneur Tries To Hire 'Online Dating Surrogate' On Craigslist
The "successful entrepreneur" is looking for someone to: spend an hour a day reviewing profiles of women on three or four dating sites; tag the best "per criteria you will be provided"; and then exchange messages and arrange dates with the lucky chosen singles. The pay is $100 a week, the ad states, and hours are flexible.
Fiverr and TaskRabbit, this poster has very specific requirements for his dating assistant, writing that the ideal candidate should be a "pretty, thin, educated female in her 20s or 30s (with great taste and strong writing ability)," without explaining why weight or facial symmetry are qualifications for the work.
There is a serious creep-factor here, but at least you can set your own hours and work from home! But be aware, female job-seekers, that finding this guy a date might be harder work than you think.
