He looked perfect, but after reading his reviews, I turned away in a flash. She appeared to have it all, but upon reading further, I really didn’t want that all. What am I talking about? Online dating, but with an added twist. What if there was an online dating service that would provide you with verified information about an individual, based on other’s reviews from previous encounters with the said individual?
This new dating service would require an individual to fill out an extensive survey and have their questions certified (with their approval.) Also, they will have certified reviews from previous encounters as well as a photo of them that is scannable for facial recognition. Once you meet said individual or look up their name, this complete list of information will appear with the reviews in dated order. You will know their strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes before a potential life partner opens their mouth!
But wait, there’s more! I envision this service is not just exclusive to online dating but is used for business as well. What if business people had profiles with verified information and reviews from others who have done business with them? Can you imagine? It would ensure every meeting you have is productive for you and the person you are speaking to because you’d already know their in’s and out’s and what they’re like before encountering them at a business meeting.
You might be wondering why anyone would allow such information about themselves to be revealed to the world, and the answer is simple. If you have nothing to hide, then why hide it behind an outdated image? Obviously this information would not be forced out there, it’s completely voluntary. But I’m sure there are lots of honest people out there who would love to participate. Wouldn’t it make life easier?
Life is too short not to know who you are actually speaking with. Shouldn’t we want every encounter to work to our advantage?
