AdopteUnMec.com (Adoptaguy.com) was first launched back in 2010 with a whopping 25,000 sign-ups in the first year. It allows men to “advertise” themselves as potential partners and has been described as “a catalogue of eligible bachelors”.
Male users of the site create a profile for review, but cannot communicate with a woman unless she first makes contact.
The site has recently opened a travelling shop that is currently in Paris. The shop has quite literally put men on the shelf. Women have been flocking to the store to check out the men on display in human-sized doll boxes.
Some of the male models have been posing as action figures, flexing their muscles, while others have been showing off their guitar skills, all while inside a doll box.
The shop will be in Paris for another 5 or 6 days before travelling to Brussels, Lausanne, Toulouse and Lyon.
Novel concept to bring together potential partners? Or just downright creepy? You decide. No word as of yet if the shop will be coming to England.
