A new app called Carrot Dating encourages users to wave incentives such as dinners and chocolates in front of potential mates as a way to convince them to go on dates. The platform, which officially launched this week, embraces bribery as a dating tactic. The app's name is a nod to the phrase "dangle a carrot" — traditionally in front of a horse of other animal — to get desired results. After perusing the website for matches, users can select the "carrot" of their choice, from a dinner and dessert to flowers, shopping and even trips. Although Carrot's focus on bribery has been panned by many who call it sexist and problematic , founder Brandon Wade said it's just a way for people to go out with others they wouldn't normally have a chance with.
