Merkur ranked Arielle a nine out of ten for her online appearance and described her as ‘very pretty, sweet and down to earth/great personality’.
As well as online pictures, age and appearance scores, he also kept track of message communications and whether to monitor the dates ‘closely’ or ‘casually’.
And so I kept track of whom I went out with; how we met (through an app, friends, etc.); how many dates we went on; and who ultimately decided to end things.Arielle ranked highly, but one lady named Marisa didn’t fare so well and was described as ‘very jappy [slang for Jewish American Princess]’ and not suited to him.When passing the document on Merkur joked: ‘I hope this email doesn’t backfire, because I really had a great time,’ however it took Arielle only two days to forward the spreadsheet on to her friends for some Monday morning entertainment.( ) A data-driven investment banker kept a detailed spreadsheet of 12 women he was chasing — coldly ranking their appearance on a scale of 1 to 10 — only to see his master plan backfire when he foolishly sent the file to one of them. The compilation shows that Merkur was e-mailing, texting and dating several women at the same time in late March and early April. Cortney, a 24-year-old Chicago native, got a 7.5 in looks but lost points after she blew off a scheduled date.The spreadsheet shows the meticulous records that David Merkur, 28, kept on each of the girls — eight of whom he met on and four he’d met through friends and family — and a column for their profile photos. “Stood me up: said 4/2 that she was at hospital with friend; might revisit,” Merkur wrote.‘SORT’ OF CREEPY: An investment banker kept a color-coded spreadsheet of women he dated — re-created in part and blurred out for privacy here (above) — arranging them by looks, impressions of first dates and interest in future pursuit. Merkur told Jezebel that he sent Arielle the spreadsheet because “she works with spreadsheets a lot, too” and she “seemed like a very sweet girl.” “I won’t be using ever again,” he said.
