A site to post shit about your ex. Here is what the About ExRated page has to say:

EX|Rated's mission is to empower singles by giving them character reviews of potential dates, and allow them to express themselves through multiple choice reviews designed to help them realize what went wrong in the past and how to make the right dating choices in the future.

How does it work?

It's simple. Search for a name to see the 1 to 5 star rating of the person. To see the entire review, become a member. It doesn't cost anything - just write a review of one of your EXs. If anyone else has written a review on the same person, you are automatically linked as friends and can comment on each other's reviews, and see where you check in.

In other words, if former President Bill Clinton were to write a review on Monica Lewinsky, and you dated her and wrote a review on her, you would be "ex-friends" with Bill Clinton, and be able to see his check-ins as well as be notified when he posts new reviews. How cool is that?!

How cool is what?

I fail to see how this serves any purpose. According to the website, this is how people are using it:

  • Networking through ex-girlfriends who date financial power-players or musicians (if you've been searching for that great drummer to complete your band....)
  • Dating resume - date one model, you can date another according to George Costanza from Seinfeld.
  • Break a girl's heart, give her a good rating and recommend her to a friend (or "exfriend".)
  • Figure out what it is you really want by filling out a form of "why it didn't work with this one."
  • Instead of having to listen to your single friends' constant dating complaints, direct them to the site.
  • Improve people's dating manners by encouraging them to strive for a good rating.

I will never understand how one can come up with such crap ideas and then find time to actually work and launch a crap project like this.

Yet another domain name wasted.
