Guys dating spreadsheet
In order to do so, I need to send out lots of emails and keep track of myriad logistical details.This is where the spreadsheet comes in: It is a way to impose order on chaos, much as it is in other aspects of my life.( ) A data-driven investment banker kept a detailed spreadsheet of 12 women he was chasing — coldly ranking their appearance on a scale of 1 to 10 — only to see his master plan backfire when he foolishly sent the file to one of them. The compilation shows that Merkur was e-mailing, texting and dating several women at the same time in late March and early April. Cortney, a 24-year-old Chicago native, got a 7.5 in looks but lost points after she blew off a scheduled date.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. “Stood me up: said 4/2 that she was at hospital with friend; might revisit,” Merkur wrote.After one date in February, he noted under the “Initial Date Comments” category: “very jappy; one and done for me.” Other missives included, “Drunkenly hooked up after J****’s birthday party at K-Town karaoke,” and “Conversation still on- going.” None of the ladies scores lower than 7 in the appearance category. For one date named Liliana, who scored a 9.5, Merkur wrote, “Looks beautiful; from coastal Romania; Chanel make-up artist.” OPINION: REAL MEN CAN CLOSE THE DEAL WITHOUT OPENING EXCEL But after a few conversations and Facebook chats, Merkur noted that her old boyfriend “might be back in the picture.” He made himself another note to call her after she returned from an April trip to Florida. For his ladies, he kept meticulous text- message records under “dates of message communication,” documenting when he sent a message and when he received one. The spreadsheet was even color-coded: blue to indicate “upcoming” dates, orange means “monitor closely,” and then there was “(Bold=ASAP).’’ For the girls he was less interested in, a dull yellow was for “monitor casually.” His system was exposed after an April 4 date at the Rose Bar with a 26-year-old brunette stunner named Arielle. this could be a mistake, but what the hell,” Merkur wrote. .” Soon after, the spreadsheet went viral on the Web.
Arielle asked to see it — and he e-mailed it to her. I only deleted the non-Match people’s names (at the bottom) since some I’ve known for a long time.” “I hope this e-mail doesn’t backfire, because I really had a great time and hope to hang again soon :),” he added. She added, “For some strange reason, he actually does. “I sincerely regret my serious lapse in judgment in this matter and apologize to everyone,” he said. Suffice it to say, I will never do anything like this again.” He earlier told that he found his handiwork “wacky and quirky and kind of funny.” Merkur argued that his busy job prevents him from remembering the mundane details of his nights out. Like Merkur, I am simply trying to keep track of the women I am dating or trying to date.There is nothing inherently creepy or misogynistic about using a tool to help remember what you did or didn’t like about another person.If I managed to go on just one date per week, it would take me ages to actually find a serious girlfriend.So, to better those chances, I go on as many dates as my schedule will allow.
The unfortunate by-product of this approach is the commoditization of human interaction.
