Deadspin online dating spreadsheet
"Dating spreadsheet guy" (or girl) is the romantic anti-hero, someone who hopes to manipulate love (in Excel!
), someone who needs to "keep track" of dates as if they were inanimate objects, someone who makes harsh judgments via paper or computer documents.
But if a spreadsheet helps, let daters have the spreadsheet.
A lovelorn finance worker has learned the hard way that if you need a spreadsheet to keep track of all the women you're dating, it's best not to share it with any of said women.
I sometimes joke that I need notecards to help me remember facts about my online prospects. It's a little intense (and somewhat creepy), but to anyone who has forgotten her date's name on the way to the date (e.g.
me), it's also pretty darn smart."I work with spreadsheets a lot," he told Jezebel. This was an honest attempt to stay organized." What isn't smart is sending it to one of the women on said spreadsheet. She was "very pretty," "sweet and down to earth," and had "a great personality," according to his now black box of a spreadsheet. Surprisingly, it took her two whole days to send the spreadsheet on.
(You'd imagine, if ever he'd focused on one of these women, he wouldn't have had to do this.) His biggest mistake, however, along with being an investment banker the trendy occupation to hate-love to hear such tales about, was sending the spreadsheet to one of his dates.
The spreadsheet shows the meticulous records that David Merkur, 28, kept on each of the girls — eight of whom he met on and four he’d met through friends and family — and a column for their profile photos.
It is a tool to stay organized and make level-headed dating decisions when online dating, when you might be texting, chatting with, calling, having coffee with, having drinks with, or otherwise communicating with as many as 3 to 10 people at a time..the goal to be respectful to those people by hopefully narrowing things down and finding someone to date more seriously." Our source kept information including names, ages, schools, recent correspondence, dates or future dates, prior relationship status—if ever married, if he has kids, etc.—family, and any other important details they might have mentioned.He had rated Arielle top and told her he would send over the list. I only deleted the non-match people's names (at the bottom) since some I've known for a long time."I hope this email doesn't backfire, because I really had a great time and hope to hang again soon :). On the date, he tells me that he has a spreadsheet for tracking all of the people from match that are 'in process'. I work long days, go to the gym, go out on a couple of midweek dates or whatnot, get home late."How am I going to remember them? Naturally, I tease him and ask him to send me the spreadsheet. See below/attached."Just when I thought I had seen it all..."Dave subsequently cancelled his subscription with but defended his actions to . "Dating spreadsheet guy" is the romantic anti-hero, someone who hopes to manipulate love (in Excel!), someone who needs to "keep track" of dates as if they were possessions, someone who judges on paper.
She also included email addresses, phone numbers, and "red flags" that could be deal-breakers "to keep organized and objective about things where possible." As for Merkur's spreadsheet, she remarked, "Because he is a guy, he had a whole photo evaluation and hotness ranking system, which to me is a waste of time, because as soon as you meet in person you will know how attractive you find them." However, she says his biggest mistake was talking about the spreadsheet on a date and sending it to her: "He probably liked her and was showing off and trying to make her think she was 'special,' but sharing the spreadsheet was ill-advised at best."exist, we also really don't like thinking that the people we're dating are doing any of that sort of thinking at all.
