What's Your Price

By: Emily Hingle

Online dating can be tough, and going on dates when you find them can be challenging if neither of you can afford a fancy dinner. But one website promises to mitigate those issues and offers other lucrative incentives. Whatsyourprice.com is a date-auction site where members bid on a date with other members they would like to meet. The website recently surveyed their own data and found that New Orleans ranked third in the most generous bids with a top number of $197 for a first date. You can find the rank of the Top Ten Most Generous Cities below. 

Top 10 Most Generous Cities in America:
