- United States of America
Cupid.com is an online dating company that also sets up local speed dating services in 100 cities across the United States. Speed dating is the 6-minute dating program where in an hour, you can meet up to 12 people of the opposite sex.
Cupid.com specifies age ranges for this activity so that participants can find mates in their own target group.
The age ranges for men is consistently 3-4 years older than the age ranges for women:
Where: Mount Kisco NY
Time: 7:00 PM
Women: Ages 32-42
Men: Ages 36-46
This practice is discriminatory against women, and makes a statement that women are supposed to be younger than a man the relationship. This policy implies that women are less desirable than men once they reach a certain age. This policy propagates an archaic belief system that women do not have the right to meet a man her own age or younger.
We want Cupid.com to put a stop to their age and sex discrimination policies.
We want Cupid.com to stop propagating archaic belief systems that women are somehow less valid than their male counterparts of the same age.
We want Cupid.com to set EQUAL age ranges for men and women in their speed dating services.
We want you to honor women of all ages by stopping your age and sex discrimination policies now.
