As if the world needed another dating site, comic-turned-talk show host-turned dating expert-turned game show host Steve Harvey is stepping into the hookup game. Last week Harvey launched his new site, Delightful.com, which is an offshoot of the company that owns Match.com, OkCupid and Tinder.
But Delightful isn’t just any dating site. It’s a misogynist’s dream. In the world of dating, it takes two people to make a thing go right. Men and women need to meet each other at the figurative halfway point and be on the same page if they want to be successful in dating and eventually find “the one” (or two, depending on your lifestyle).
And here’s where Harvey drops the ball.
In an interview with Forbes, Harvey explains the rationale behind Delightful. “Women are wired differently,” he says.
Insert every “women are from Venus and men are from Mars” cliché.
“The one thing I know about women is, women don’t really want to just date,” he says. “They want to date with the hope that it leads to a relationship.
“A man doesn’t have any problem at all dating several or a wide variety of people until he finds the right one,” he continues. But women, as a rule, don’t want to do that, and the reason is scientific: “A lot of women have that biological clock that ticks in them.”
