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.
One passer-by said she thought the store was a brilliant idea because it means women won’t have to wait to be chatted up, putting the power back into their hands.
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

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
