Don’t you wish you could cut through all the red tape, and ask the questions that really matter when it comes to finding out more about a potential mate? It’s sad that it has come to this, but wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have to rely on uninformative Google, Facebook and background searches to find out pertinent and viable information about our dates? Being forthright about what type of relationship you desire and past or present responsibilities could save both parties a lot of time and heartache, but many fail to do so.
If I could request that each potential suitor complete and sign an application prior to even the first date, this is how the form would look:
When approached, I would simply hand the interested party a business card with a link to the application. Once he has completed and submitted the application, I will review it and contact him if I am interested or do nothing if I’m not interested.
If you feel so inclined, feel free to either use the form I’ve created or formulate your own. If this process can be used to apply for jobs, why shouldn’t it be applicable to dating too? After all, getting married is one of the most important things you will ever do in this life, so finding the right mate should be taken just as seriously.
If you were presented with a dating application, would you complete it? What would you add or take away from the one I created? Do you think such an application process would help to alleviate misunderstandings and uncertainty as to the intent of the parties involved?
