Updated: Dating against humanity dating talk with notes

…a game in which nice single people are roped into a horrible game with others, resulting in cognitive overload, shocking manners, narcissism, algorithmic prejudice, financial loss and decisions based purely on appearances.

I updated my presentation with notes or rather a little commentary inside the notes of what I’m thinking about in the slide; for example…


You can look at the slide and think, bit of serial dater? Really? Well here’s the background to my thoughts on that slide…

The word serial dater always conjures up visions of players, so I kind of prefered ethical dater. Because although I dated more than most typical people, it was a great chance to make friends and go to new places.

So here is the full breakdown of my thoughts on google slides or slideshare.

Enjoy! Next time will be the actual video, which I have actually seen, its pretty good and entertaining.

  1. I don’t recall giving you permission to use my photograph in this particular talk, and I don’t want my face associated with you and your self-promoting activities. Last summer I finally realised the truth of our ‘friendship’; I wasn’t special or important to you in any way, you took no responsibility for our divorce, and you didn’t have any regrets about how you treated me. I was just part of your ‘story’, so you could say ‘Look how great I am, I’m such a special snowflake that my ex-wife still wants me in her life’. That realisation possibly hurt more than anything else you ever did. Please stop using my existence and my photo as props to prove someone once wanted to be in a long term relationship with you.
