"Our study revealed that as Valentine's Day neared, both the number of offers and the average first date price steadily increased," says Brandon Wade, the CEO and founder of WhatsYourPrice.com. The website sells first dates: "Offering money for a first date is rather unconventional in the dating world, but it proves that Valentine's Day is as important a holiday for singles as it is for couples."
