Salesmen Need Not Apply in Online Dating

I was quite amused at this story about a speed-dating event in which one guy showed up and just handed out resumes. Clearly, this guy has trouble transitioning from the online world to the offline. “Well”, he must have thought, “You use a profile to land a date online. You use a resume to land a job offline. Why not?”

The “Why not?” is because people don’t like to be treated like that. They showed up in person to see you, not read a piece of paper you’ve handed them. And they probably don’t want your business card, either. Furthermore, when you print up resumes for a dating event, what you’re really saying is “I can’t think outside the office.” Which is a shame, because – singles take note – the really interesting things in a relationship happen in the bedroom.

Like I’ve advised in earlier blog posts, you should also leave behind the phone, laptop, and other gizmos on a date, even a speed-date. There’s a difference between being being tech-savvy and tech-dependent. When you can’t be pried away from your gadget, you’re telling your date that they will never have your undivided attention. A woman can look like Carmen Electra, be dressed like Leelu in the Fifth Element and be doing Chinese-acrobat cartwheels on her way to engaging in some carnal act with you from the back pages of the Kama Sutra, and you’d be all “Yeah, uh-huh, very nice, hon. Oh my God! My stock went up half a point!”
