Letter to the Editor:
Reviewing Online Daters is a Bad Idea


Yes, I'd love to get the scoop about my next date, but I can see this idea failing on so many levels:

1) A date review, almost by definition, means a failed date. There will usually be no review if things go well. (After all, why would you want someone else to horn in on your new SO?) So, most of the reviews are going to be negative, which doesn't aid the dating process.

2) There's no context for understanding the reviewer's point of view. How many dates has s/he been on? What sort of person is s/he? Is s/he just spiteful?

3) Eventually -- provided I get a date(s) from online sites -- I'm going to end up reading about ME. And really, I don't want to read how poorly I did this or that.

4) From what I can see, men get few dates compared to women. So, all else equal, women will write most of the reviews. The site may end up not being all that useful for men.
