MEN pose in a shop window, but they aren’t modelling clothes; they’re offering themselves up to passing women looking for a date. French dating site Adopte-un-mec (Adopt-a-guy) has opened a new store in Paris where women can browse the aisles and shop for the man of their dreams.

Next, it’s time for the girls to browse hundreds of dating profiles on the rails of the store before they put in their order and ask a man out.

Blonde Amandine Camporro said: “I think it’s great. It’s different. For once we have a choice and we don’t have to put up with the trials and tribulations of seduction so it’s a really great idea.”
Plus she thinks the set-up shows the men have that highly-coverted sense of humour.
“It proves that the guys can make fun of themselves and the ones who are here have a sense of humour and that’s different”, she added
DATING site Adopt-a-guy opens a shop in Paris selling men to women looking for a date
The dating store’s window shopping invention allows women to effectively ‘try-before-they buy’ by seeing what a man looks like in the flesh before they agree to a date.
The risk that comes with relying on online profile pictures to establish whether you fancy someone will be a thing of the past. It must be an attractive prospect for women who’ve met up with men thinking they were getting a sporty type only to discover on the date that his profile photo was taken ten years ago when he was three stone lighter. Combining two of women’s favourite things: men and shopping, can only be a good thing
