Unusually organized online dater makes spreadsheet to keep matches straight
In an “honest attempt to stay organized,” one NYC finance worker’s spreadsheet cataloging the eight women he had started dating from Match.com, has backfired horribly, but hilariously.
Jezebel posted the man’s spreadsheet, complete with details about each woman’s appearance, personality, and messaging interactions. The site got hold of it after he (stupidly) told a woman he was dating about it and then emailed it to her so she could see it. Apparently, it was just too good to keep to herself and so she started sending it around, which we thank her for.
We can’t imagine that it’s easy to keep track of eight women, so we can at least understand the concept behind creating a spreadsheet — but it still seems pretty ridiculous. He organizes them by name, age, and online appearance in the form of a convenient scale from 1 to 10.
The initial comments/notes section includes his first impressions about the women. They range from “mixed bag of pictures but great bod,” to “Chanel makeup artist.”
He keeps impeccable track of his dates and messages with the women, noting their first meeting locations. Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar seems to be a favorite of his. His notes reveal that he was stood up by one of the women and another one canceled on him for “work-related” reasons.
One woman who he found to be an “Ok girl, but very jappy” (by which we assume he means Jewish American Princess), he put in the “Monitor casually” column. Another match “from Hawaii and San Francisco,” he notes to himself to “Monitor closely.”
The meticulously systematized dater admitted to Jezebel, “I work with spreadsheets a lot. It’s a great additional tool. I work long days, go to the gym, go out on a couple of midweek dates or what not, get home late…how am I going to remember them? I’m not. So I made the spreadsheets. My comments aren’t malicious or mean. This was an honest attempt to stay organized.”
He also said he emailed the spreadsheet to his date because she was into spreadsheets, too. Sounds like a real love connection, if you ask us, but alas, this scorned date-sorter said he will never be using Match.com again… he didn’t say anything about not using spreadsheets again, though.
