Outsource Your Dating Life?

Thu, Sep 16, 2010


Although this was done as an admitted publicity stunt to promote his book, The Four Hour Workweek, Mr. Ferriss does raise an interesting issue here. Can you outsource your dating life, and have it be a positive thing? The example from the video was an extreme case where a series of 20 minute dates were “batched” together in one weekend, but it still produced a good end result with a long term relationship coming out of the experiment.

With the cost of personal outsourcing being so low on the internet, this is at least something that a lot of people can play around with and make their own variations of. Busy daters can have their weekend dates set without having to think about it. Those who want more involvement in the selection process can set up more opportunities for screening and approval before they let the outsourcer set the date. What it really comes down to is how well you can give directions. The better you are at that, the better your dates will be.

Does this make dating too impersonal? Consider that you can never outsource in person interaction, so that will not be taken out of the picture. At least not in any way I can think of. With an open mind and some creativity, you can really push the envelope and take your dating life to fun places. How would you improve on this process and customize it to your needs?
