Have you heard of Carrot Dating? It's a new phone app where prospective dates can be enticed with tokens of goodwill (the "carrot") like flower bouquets, dinners, or spa days. The most popular offer in Massachusetts? According to the website, a free tank of gas. Do you think this is ethical? Does this ruin the last bit of spontaneity in dating? Or is it a stroke of genius?
