Where’s the pie charts? I WANT PIE CHARTS!
Friend of mine met a guy online who took it a step further and wrote personality profiles a la Myer Briggs for each woman based on tidbits of info he got during conversation. She’s very analytical and found it odd, but charming. “At least he’s good listener,” she said. Turns out, he was also a great stalker. My motto, following your gut is always a better idea than giving the “benefit of the doubt.” But that’s not very romantic (frowny face)
I have no problem with this. I’m a woman, and not big on spreadsheets, but if I were casually dating or “talking with” multiple people, I would think this was a good idea. He’s being smart about it, staying organized so he doesn’t get them mixed up or cause himself (or the girls) unnecessary stress. It’s not like he’s keeping a tally of conquests or filling up a little black book to make himself feel like a man, people. This looks perfectly well-intentioned and rational to me.
As much as people hate to hear it, dating for guys is totally a numbers game. # of women approached, digits gotten, dates had, etc. Sure, you can affect your numbers by being more attentive and reactive to the specific woman, but far and away, the best practice is just to do what you do and rack up the numbers. So this makes perfect sense.
