A serial dater has earned over $53,000 (£40,000) by going on lavish dates with complete strangers despite having a boyfriend.
Sheen Hunter, 29, from Seattle, Washington, charges over $300 (£230) to have luxury meals with people she has met online when she was single two years ago.
She has attended over 100 dates and states that her time is so valuable that each person is only given a two hour slot.
Sheen, who is also an actress, claims the dates – which she has with both men and women – do not involve sex and that she makes this clear before the dates are arranged.

She continued: ‘My current boyfriend, Michael Macdonald, 28, doesn’t mind that I go on dates with strangers as he knows I’m not looking for a new relationship.
‘I love dating people for money, it’s so sociable and it pays the bills.
‘I discovered the website What’s Your Price two years ago and have since enjoyed over 100 dates.
‘I don’t tend to spend more than two hours with each man or woman and will charge up to $300 (£230) per date.

‘I have been to some amazing places, including New York, LA, San Francisco, Florida, Minnesota, Costa Rica, Mexico and Canada.
‘It’s really fun and love enjoying new experiences, I have dated people from Saudi Arabia, England, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and Russia.
‘I tend to go on less dates now I’m in a relationship with Michael but I still try and squeeze a few dates in each month.’
Before using What’s Your Price Sheen says she’d never used a dating website.
She added: ‘I’d never used one before but when I realised I could earn money while dating I was using it all the time.
‘I would definitely recommend others trying it if they want to earn some extra cash for enjoying lavish dinner dates.
‘I’ve had a great two years using the dating site and will continue to organise dates in the future.
‘My current boyfriend says, “I know your process. I’m alright with it as it’s basically just a job and way to make new friends. As long as you’re safe and keep it the way you have, I’ll support you.”‘
