A New York man's meticulous dating spreadsheet has gone viral after he sent it to one of the women he was dating. The Excel spreadsheet chronicles David Merkur's interaction and relationship with each woman he met on Match.com. The grid is broken down into several categories including Match.com user name, real name, age, profile picture, online appearance ranking, initial notes, contact information, timeline of communication, date status and date comments.
On April 4, Dave went to a New York Bar with a woman whom he described as, "Very pretty; sweet & down to earth/great personality; hope to see again soon."
During their date, the spreadsheet came up in conversation and the woman asked if he would send it to her. After some hesitation, he did. With the spreadsheet he sent this message…
"Well ... this could be a mistake, but what the hell. I thought about deleting the names, but figured I might as will give you the whole thing. I hope this e-mail doesn't backfire, because I really had a great time and hope to hang again soon :). However, I will keep my word! Have a great weekend!"
A few days later, the woman forwarded the spreadsheet to her friends with "Monday morning entertainment" in the subject line….
She wrote, "I went on a date with this guy last Wednesday. On the date, he tells me that he has a spreadsheet for tracking all of the people from match that are 'in process.' Naturally, I tease him and ask him to send me the spreadsheet. For some strange reason, he actually does."
