I’m a fat, bald, short guy whose only quality is that he isn’t an ax murderer. Since I’m 31, and eventually want a family, I figured I’d better not procrastinate. For any serious endeavor, you need a serious process.
I decided to hack the system and go for volume instead of personalization. I was determined to find the One, even if it meant swiping right the whole Bay Area.
Another was exceptionally caring, and made me feel special, valued. Technology is leverage, and I think I leveraged it wrong: the execution was fine but the strategy wasn’t.
Perhaps a better strategy would hinge upon Mark Granovetter’s research.
The excess of choice made me wary of missing out on my perfect match. To make sure I wouldn’t miss out, I designed a rigorous first-date process. I went on 150 first dates but didn’t manage to find the One. At some point, we got lost and I used this opportunity to steal a magical first kiss. I wanted to tell her that I liked her, but I was anxious that she wouldn’t.
Most of the first dates led to nothing: we didn’t have much in common. As a founder, I stubbornly believe that everything is within my power to fix, and that something could have been done differently to force the decision in my favor. That was my best first date on more than 150, ironically the only one that hadn’t been part of my rigid routine. On our 5th date, she said she wasn’t ready for a relationship. Having more matches increased my odds of finding someone interesting, but it also became an addiction.
Dating at scale doesn’t go well with well fitting areas of interests. On the rare occasions when I was genuinely interested in a date, she wouldn’t be. With her there was no doubt: I needed a second date. Outside, she climbed on my shoulders and I ran uphill while she laughed. The possibility of meeting that many people made me want to meet every one of them, to make sure I wouldn’t miss the One.
One decided to end things despite “having enjoyed her time with me, for what it’s worth”. In the process, I also found out something horrible: I still believe technology can hack love, though that belief is likely irrational.
