In response to women’s experiences on other sites, we require men to be verified grads of good universities.” The site has a unique format -- women pay a monthly subscription from to (depending on how many months they purchase) and men pay per message, so that they’re not copy/pasting dozens of messages to send out.
We do all that dirty work for you.” We tested out both services at Metro to see how they stack up.
