It's not necessarily bad for the people who are DOING the LOOKING, but it's not a very nice way to treat people. People are not accessories.
I agree totally. But why is it an audition? It's a conversation much like you have when you're talking to someone new. "Hi, I'm Danny and my wife and I are looking for someone to bring into our marriage." vs "Hi, my name is Neon and I'm looking to add someone into my life." Only difference I see there is "our" and "my".
Fact is that ANY relationship starts out as an audition, no?
