Dating Applications Should Be Required

What if we treated dating like we do a job or an interview. Companies pre-screen applicants before deciding to give them an interview. Why don't we pre-screen guys more before deciding to give them our hearts? For example:

  1. Applicants fill out applications (ask potential date questions).
  2. Applicant gets an interview (go out on date to learn even more).
  3. Interviewer takes notes (evaluates all information & decide if you want to continue dating).
  4. Interviewer does a background check (background check could be asking friends/relatives/or official criminal background check)
Below is a dating application I ran across on Black Femme Fatale's blog. Loved it and thought I would share it with you.

In compliance with applicable laws, this woman typically does not discriminate because of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, veteran status or disability. But because I am a woman, I can do whatever the hell I wanna do.

Instructions: Please print. Be sure to answer all questions. If a question does not apply to you, answer with “no” or “not applicable”. Do not substitute any bullshit for the information requested. Please attach 3 references. Do not use family members, homeboys or cut buddies that you claim you are just friends with. We would prefer if you use past girlfriends, coworkers, or someone that really does not give a flip about this one way or the other and will not lie for you.

Note: I do offer the opportunity for advancement. Upon outstanding behavior, you may be promoted to boyfriend, fiancé, or even husband if you are lucky.

Sweet Tea, some guys would lie on the application and hope you don't do follow up questions. LOL

Mr.Tramuel--shh. I wasn't supposed to let you in on the secret. LOL

Deborah said...

An application is a good idea Sheila but yes they will lie. Many are experts at it.

Shelia said...

Deborah, a lie wasn't nothing for one of my exes to tell. Look up the word liar and his photo will be right there next to the word.
