PHOENIX — If you’re looking for love and can’t land a date on a traditional dating website, why not try a little bribery?

“A lot of women are responding positively by going on dates with men who would otherwise not have a chance on traditional dating websites,” said spokesman Leroy Velasquez.

Men and women are invited to browse the site for prospective mates and accept offers anything from a tank of gas, drinks, coffee, dancing or jewelry in exchange for a date.

Out of the 30 different bribes available on Carrot Dating, women in Phoenix said yes to free drinks more than any other gift or activity.
