Go-getter finance guy sends email survey to women after dates

Does Mike have a reason to be self conscious about his hair?

We all remember ye olde tale of the online dater who organized his potential matches using a spreadsheet rankings of the women on a scale of 1 to 10.

Now, brace yourself for the latest star of the awkward dating techniques show. Meet Mike. Mike is a 24-year-old finance worker based in Philly who is just looking for a little feedback. Unfortunately for him, his former dating partner seized the opportunity to humiliate him after she was sent a survey about her interaction with Mike once they agreed to stop seeing each other.

The young woman met Mike on OKCupid and told Deadspin that he is “six feet, overall moderately attractive.” However, after a few dates, she realized it just wasn’t “there.”

“He struck me as a little socially inept hence why I was starting to doubt the ‘non-physical’ attraction,” she told Deadspin. He wasn’t too creepy, just the type of guy who overanalyzes every detail and feels completely awkward in the majority of social situations. It didn’t seem like he got out much.”

And that’s when Mike sent the survey …. in an email… with a subject line including a “Romeo & Juliet” passage. “Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow,” if you must know.

So what is that Mike wants to know? Basically, all of the questions everyone wonders after a date, but never ever asks because it would be super weird and socially inappropriate to do so. For example, “Mike is very masculine. At any point; did you feel he was compensating for anything?” Here’s another perfectly reasonable question: “Are you a feminist? – your answer is for informational purposes only.”

Also, in case she wanted to leave Mike any final thoughts, he included an area where she could “feel free to use the space below to draw Mike a picture.”

Thoughtful.
