Since I write about dating here, I usually pay attention to the latest books that offer insight about it. I often find that the authors will either amuse me, irritate me, or flat out confuse me. Well, this new book does all three!
Because I am a foot soldier for romance on the love battlefield, I took a closer look at “The Rating Game.” It’s a fool proof formula for finding your soul mate <– marketing gold, no? The author, Reba Toney said in this interview that the formula works like this: “You rate yourself and then you rate the people you’re interested in dating. That way you only date people that rate the same as you.”
I could list my gripes with this theory, but basically I think many of us have delusions of grandeur. If your perception of yourself is such that you don’t honestly know how you should “rate” yourself, then you might throw off that “fool proof” formula just a bit.
Ms. Toney said that the rating system focuses on four categories: face, body, personality, and life situation. Each category is rated from one to 10. Now, if you gave yourself a ranking, what do you think it would be? Would you be able to find a match with the exact ranking as you gave yourself? Do you think these four areas covers it all?
Maybe I am Captain Obvious here but don’t single people already date individuals they are interested in based on attraction and compatibility? Is rating done in an unspoken way?
