Description

Dating is hard. But dating in Alabama? Abysmal. Thus, Birmingham resident Ren You is offering a reasonable finder's fee of $10,000 to anyone who can successfully set him up with a girlfriend. "I don't know if it's going to work out," You tells AL.com, "but I thought I'd give it a shot." The 29-year-old moved to Birmingham from Boston roughly a year ago and was quickly so discouraged by the dating environment, he felt inspired to use his marketing background to improve his success ratio. You's website — DateRen.com — serves as the novel social experiment's proverbial hub, with a clever bio and a smattering of personal photos. In short, simply suggest the right potential mate for You — and, after six months of reassurance, you'll receive the promised compensation. Before you ask, You is more than aware of more traditional internet dating methods, but is critical of their "adverse selection problems." According to his bio, You is really into Game of Thrones, Memento, and insists that any potential significant other knows the difference between Astrology and Astronomy. "I feel like finding relationships is something that a lot of people don't want to associate with a dollar amount," You says. "But if you think about the amount of money that people spend on other things, 10 grand can't even buy you a decent car."
