They say there are a lot of fish in the sea. But for those playing the good ol’ fashion dating game, it’s hard to tell which of those fish will sink or swim in a relationship. Now, with the Boyfriend (BFC) and Girlfriend (GFC) Calculators by Jericho Beach Apps, men and women can easily rate all the potential significant others in their lives in order to help them choose the ideal mate.
With an intuitive and easy-to-use rating system, both BFC and GFC work in essentially the same fashion. Both apps start you off on the setup page, where users slide the markers to create their ideal rating according to their preferences in an array of differing qualities that people use to evaluate a potential mate. Moving the meter from high to low, users rank prospective significant others based on the following criteria: looks, brains, confidence, sense of humor, physicality, dependability, similar interest, romance, wealth and grooming.
Depending on where each marker falls, more points are added to your ideal rating of your perfect companion. When each criterion has been accounted for, users can then refer to the number on the bottom of the screen as the desired rating for the man or woman they hope to find.
Once users have revealed the rating of their perfect lady, or found the ultimate number for their number one man, users can then begin to rate their possible future mates individually to see how they match up and if they meet their predetermined ideals. Users can rate each guy and/or girl separately on the ‘Rate New’ page, which also allows you to enter the person’s personal information, including name, phone number, email address, Twitter, and photo – a sort of people organizer with an added benefit. New entries can either be rated first, filling in the personal information portion later, or vice versa.
When all those worth rating have been entered into The Boyfriend Calculator or The Girlfriend Calculator, both apps will automatically list everyone entered in order from highest to lowest ranking for convenience. However, users can re-rate anyone at any time, just in case first impressions weren’t entirely correct.
Though BFC and GFC are certainly not intended for the married crowd, both apps provide amusement and entertainment for the respective sexes. Whether its ladies night and you and the girls are checking out guys at the club, or you and the guys are throwing back a few at the bar, ranking the hottie across the room may just be the boost you need to go over and strike up a conversation. After all, dating is a kind of game, and you can’t win it if you’re not actively playing.
About the Developer:
With the holidays fast approaching, so comes the time of year where we must truly reflect on the blessings in our lives and help those in need. For Gregory Moleski, developer of The Boyfriend and Girlfriend Calculators, those in need reside within his own family. Recently, Moleski’s 5-year-old niece, Meaghan, had a brain tumor removed. Though the prognosis is good, Meaghan still has a long, tough road of chemotherapy and radiation ahead of her.
As a way of helping Meaghan’s cause, Moleski’s friends and family have banded together to help raise money. Meaghan’s sister, Madison, has created bracelets through her church and can be purchased here: http://www.prayingformeaghanm.blogspot.com. Moleski himself has agreed to donate the proceeds of his Dog Meditation CD, sold through the Satori Dog Institute, which can be bought here: http://satoridog.com/gifts_new.htm. Also, Moleski’s long-time friend Tom Formaro and his wife Rachel, co-authors of Alfonso, the Christmas Pumpkin, in association with Tramonto Press, have agreed that a portion of their sales between now and December 25, 2009 will be donated to Meaghan’s cause. Alfonso, the Christmas Pumpkin can be purchased at www.alfonsopumpkin.com, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
So, this holiday season, when you are scrambling for the perfect gift for that someone special, take a moment to think of those who are fighting for the greatest gift of all – life. We thank you all and best wishes to Meaghan and the Moleski family for a speedy recovery and bright New Year!
