A few days later, the woman forwarded the spreadsheet to her friends as “Monday morning entertainment.”
She wrote, “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. For some strange reason, he actually does.”
The email ended, “Just when I thought I had seen it all….”
From there, the spreadsheet went viral. But some of the women are not thrilled with the newfound attention.
The highest score for “online appearance,” a 9.5, went to Liliana Beidaut, who Merkur noted “looks beautiful; from coastal Romania; Chanel make-up artist.”
“I’ve gotten a lot of calls from random people saying, ‘Oh, you’re the 9.5,’” Beidaut told site.
Beidaut, 26, has mixed feelings about the spreadsheet. She holds no resentment for Merkur, whom she is friends with through Facebook and text-chats but has never met in person.
“I think the guy is really nice,” Beidaut said. “I never met him and I don’t think he did something that bad. He was nice, and he was trying to keep himself organized. I think he took that seriously and was really looking for a girl.”
Beidaut has harsher words for the woman who sent around the spreadsheet.
“Why would she send it to the whole world? It was a really stupid move,” Beidaut said. “My face is plastered everywhere now. I wasn’t looking for that. I just thinking that I was using Match.com.”
Beidaut said she is “absolutely” considering taking legal action against the woman that sent the email because she believes her privacy has been violated. She has already spoken to at least one other woman on the list who is similarly upset.
“I think he really liked the girl and he trusted her, so he sent her the thing,” she said. “He had some doubt before she sent it out and I think she was spiteful.”
