New York, Apr 20 (ANI): An investment banker, who kept a detailed spreadsheet of 12 women he was chasing, coldly ranked their appearance on a scale of 1 to 10 but his master plan backfired when he foolishly sent the file to one of them.
The spreadsheet shows the meticulous records that David Merkur kept on each of the girls, eight of whom he met on Match.com and four he'd met through friends and family - and a column for their profile photos.
After one date in February, the 28-year-old noted under the "Initial Date Comments" category "very jappy; one and done for me."
Other missives included, "Drunkenly hooked up after J****'s birthday party at K-Town karaoke," and "Conversation still on-going."
None of the ladies scores lower than 7 in the appearance category.
For one date named Liliana, who scored a 9.5, Merkur wrote, "Looks beautiful; from coastal Romania; Chanel make-up artist."
However, after a few conversations and Facebook chats, Merkur noted that her old boyfriend "might be back in the picture."
He made himself another note to call her after she returned from an April trip to Florida.
For his Match.com ladies, he kept meticulous text-message records under "dates of message communication," documenting when he sent a message and when he received one.
The spreadsheet was even colour-coded: blue to indicate "upcoming" dates, orange to "monitor closely," and then there was "(Bold=ASAP).''
For the girls he was less interested in, a dull yellow was for "monitor casually."
His system was exposed after an April 4 date at the Rose Bar with a 26-year-old brunette stunner named Arielle.
Over drinks, Merkur told her about his spreadsheet, Arielle asked to see it and he e-mailed it to her.
"Well . . . this could be a mistake, but what the hell," the New York Post quoted Merkur as writing.
"I thought about deleting the names, but figured I might as well give you the whole thing. I only deleted the non-Match people's names (at the bottom) since some I've known for a long time.
"I hope this e-mail doesn't backfire, because I really had a great time and hope to hang again soon :).
"However, I will keep my word! Have a great weekend!" he wrote.
On April 9, Arielle - whom Merkur described in his spreadsheet as "very pretty, sweet and down to earth" with a "great personality" - e-mailed it to her friends with a note.
"Wanted to pass this on to you for some monday morning entertainment. I went on a date with this guy last wednesday. On the date, he tells me that he has a spreadsheet for tracking all of the people from Match that are 'in process.' Naturally, I tease him and ask him to send me the spreadsheet," she wrote.
"For some strange reason, he actually does. See below/attached. Just when I thought I had seen it all . . ." she wrote.
Soon after, the spreadsheet went viral on the Web.
Merkur, an associate director in capital markets for real-estate finance firm Ladder Capital, said he was sorry for making the crass document.
"I sincerely regret my serious lapse in judgment in this matter and apologize to everyone," he said.
"I am deeply remorseful. Suffice it to say, I will never do anything like this again," Merkur added. (ANI)
