Neutrocyranic dating

Pay people to go out on dates for you, then you go out with the great ones.

I imagine that if you put up ads at ten different online dating sites you will get 20 replies.

Then you have another person go out on the dates, then fill in a statistics sheet on things like vivacity, mental stability, appearance, good-personness.

Then you have a date with the three highest scorers. You get just 3/20 of the anxiety and most likely a better time.

Now the thing is you are upfront about this in your personals ad. You advertise at craigslist to find a neutral cyrano similar to you (personality:MBTI) to go on the dates. Each date pays them $20. Not only that, they have the option of dating the person too if they like them. Thus some fortunate person gets paid to go on dates.

So among those with an extra $400, the three most wonderful people are located and warmed up.

necessary context to understand the title of this idea [notexactly, Feb 06 2018]


       Neutrocyranic?? Is the idea that you send an asexual frenchman with an enormous nose as your stand-in?   

       [-] because I can.

       Well, at least it's not in other:general.   

       Are you going to pay for the dates dinners ? Or do they only get $20? And how are you going to screen your judges?   

       [-] because I have actually gone on dates.

       [-] Experience is making you own mistakes. Especially the experience not going out again, with the one you probably should have.

       Have you thought through how this would look from the girls' point if view?
pertinax, Feb 05 2018

       I don't see the post as being male-oriented.   

       Best of course would be rep/rep dating.
FlyingToaster, Feb 05 2018

       I believe that's the role of diplomats.
normzone, Feb 05 2018

       [beany], have you actually ever been on a date?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 05 2018

       Do telepresence robots count? Intercontinental dating. Probably not, the nose isn't big enough.

       You realize if this is successful, your surrogates will be reporting on the surrogates of the lady daters.   

       So if they found a successful match, it is likely it is not with someone who is warmed up, but rather with a paranoid apartment-dweller who is afraid to go outside.

       // a paranoid apartment-dweller who is afraid to go outside. //   

       [xenzag] is absolutely NOT paranoid. We really are waiting and watching for an opportunity, however fleeting, to dispense Extreme Prejudice where it is so richly deserved.

       I prefer raisins to dates.

       A couple of raisins can add to the rye ins.
