Dating Trading Cards

Like baseball cards, picture on the front, stats on the back
  [vote for,

REALISTIC photo of the person on the front (NOT 10 pounds ligher, or 10 years younger, or with more hair, or with less gut)

STATS on the back: - All the usual 'get-to-know-you' blather Interests, education, family, job

- Plus... # of previous relationships, stats of who-broke-up-with-whom

- All the usual baseball stats too, RBI, % reaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd base, home runs

- Contact info

Variety of purposes...

Interested in that cute girl at the bookstore and a little shy? Hand'em your card.

First date? Exchange cards so you get all that stupid 'get to know you' conversation out of the way.

At a club? Collect cards and trade'em with your buddies "I'll trade you two of my blondes for one of your redheads"

Dating multiple people? Reference the card to get your facts straight. "So, how's your sister (glance at card) Lisa doing?"

Okay, extremely shallow and superficial, but that's how the dating scene is, isn't it? Calling a spade a spade.

Identity Card Top Trumps http://www.halfbake...Card_20Top_20Trumps
similar ... but not for dating purposes [jonthegeologist, Oct 04 2004]


       I attempted this while in highschool ... bad idea - it makes you look desperate.

       No doubt the European set would start playing Top Trumps with them...

       [DrCurry] ... I'd obviously start playing top trumps with these cards. see link for a previous poor posting.

       Maybe if you started a reality show with them...

       We had a promiscuous friend who'd slept with most of the known world - we'd talked of making a set of cards consisting of one card for every man she'd slept with.
