I am appalled he did this. That he used a spreadsheet for non numeric information. He should be using a table in Word.

bluehubcap: The My Little Pony Killer: bluehubcap: Once dated a guy that used to keep track of every time we had sex on a calendar. Like it was some kind of badge of honour or something. That's sick and creepy.

I knew a girl who did something similar with her SO. They had different sized heart stickers that coded for different sexual acts/types of orgasms had. Ew.

Oh gawd. You win, that's way creepier.


"Hey, what do the starfish stickers stand for?"

Oh, come on! Women find everything "creepy" these days: You can't keep a spread sheet about your dates, you can't follow them around, you can't photograph them in public eating a banana or popsicle, you can't snoop through their garbage...Next you'll tell me I can't break into their apartments when they're at work and masturbate with their underwear. Where does this madness stop?

Jewish American Princess. Prior to college, I had no idea what it meant, but then I was surrounded by all these self proclaimed JAPs. As an Asian, need less to say, it took me by surprise.

Need_MindBleach: Talondel: Need_MindBleach: I didn't say "end communication." I wouldn't do that. But if I've decided to start dating you, I'm not going to be cruising the bars on Fridays looking for other guys, and I'd be weirded out if you did the equivalent.

Also, this isn't the Regency era. If you're dating, you're assumed to be farking, or at least pretty damned close to it.

But from what I can tell, that's all his spreadsheet was doing. Keeping track of who he was communicating with and when. In the past this information would have been kept in a 'little black book.' You know, one of those bound stacks of lined paper with lettered index tabs on the edge. In modern times, there's still a need to keep track of this information. I imagine most people would use their smart phones for this kind of thing. I believe that some dating sites even have a feature that allows you to keep notes about other users that only you can see. I fail to see how this spreadsheet is substantially different than that.

These two weren't "dating." They'd been on one date. If you're farking (or damn close to farking) every person you go on a first date with then I only have one thing to ask: what are you doing this weekend?

But seriously, The only dumb thing this guy did was trust a girl that he liked but had only been on one date with. A mistake I'm sure he won't make again.

As for the girl in this story, I can only imagine that at some point in the future she's going to wonder why it is her boyfriend keeps secrets from her. Well frankly my dear, this is why. Because you've demonstrated that you can't be trusted with anyone's secrets.

/watches the hit counter on luckcat's profile explode

Alright, alright. Maybe it's not that bad. But if I go on a date with Carl on Saturday, decide he's great, set up another date with him next week, and go on a date with Joe on Wednesday, should I expect Carl to be cool with it if he accidentally picks up my notebook and sees "WEDNESDAY-DATE WITH JOE" s ...


Well, it depends really.. Is Carl HOT?

oh that's nothing. when i was 10 i found my dad's non-electronic date journal. he rated women on an alphabetical scale [A++ being best] on such items as 'breast perkiness', 'breast size', 'waist', 'eyes', 'face', 'pussy tightness', and i think somewhere in there was a light mention of 'personality'

my mother and one other woman were in the top rankings. way to go dad.

You've been on Mythbusters and you have resort to online dating?!! Did you just run out of women to sleep with? Had to expand the pool a little?

Did you get to touch Kari? Did she smell like vanilla and kitten sleep? I NEED TO KNOW, DAMMIT!

You know what's creepy?

The fact that he rated that "Liliana" woman as a 9.5. (Entry No. 5)

Women in the 9-plus category come along once every 10-20 years. Virtually no men ever actually date one of them, and none of them looking for dates via websites.

None.

But this guy thinks he's found and casually dated three of them.

For a financial services guy, he needs to seriously re-think his standards! There's no way I'd give this guy my money ... he'd be all like, "Hey, there's this awesome stock you should buy, it's guaranteed to be worth a zillion dollars tomorrow!"

And I'd be all like, "Uh, what makes you think that?"

And he'd be all like, "Well, it's lost 90% of its value in the last 4 days and the company just filed for bankruptcy, but my gut tells me that my quantitative analysis is airtight!"

What a creep. Total nut-bar.

steamingpile: mikebdoss: I'm glad we're all agreed that the horrible person here is the woman who sent the spreadsheet to all her friends.

Personally, I don't see anything creepy about the guy's spreadsheet - some people have trouble keeping details straight, and having seen some dating sites in my time, I can totally see how things would get confusing.

I concur, the biggest issue is that the woman was a coont about it, hell she even got rave reviews in the spreadsheet.

Women, being judged is life, dont kid yourself and think you arent judged every second of every day, men know you judge us the moment you look at us.

/we are on to you
//oh yes we are.........

It's because he used Comic Sans for the font.
