Spreadsheet Lover's 9.5 Girl Thinks He's 'Nice'

One of the women on David Merkur's notorious spreadsheet thinks he's a really nice guy.

From the UK's Daily Mail:

Lilana Beidaut, whom he met on Match.com, was awarded Merkur's highest score for appearance - a 9.5 out of 10 - on the absurd document. He added she "looks beautiful; from coastal Romania; Chanel make-up artist' but noted that 'Old BF may be back in the picture."

Speaking to MailOnline, Beidaut admitted: "This is what I tell men when I'm not interested."

The 26-year-old, who never met Merkur in person, insisted it was nothing he had done wrong, but she was simply too busy to continue messaging him. Although she said Match.com was a "serious company," she said she did not need it to meet men, and her interest in the site had dwindled.

But she said she did not blame Merkur — whom she described as "a really nice guy who wanted to get serious about a girl" — for creating the spreadsheet.

"He's a smart guy and he want to keep track of everything," she said.

"He wanted to make sure he was approaching the women correctly — they're all beautiful girls. He's a lucky guy."

As I predicted, the backlash against the scorn poured upon Merkur is in full swing.
