How dating in 2021 is like a SaaS Sales Cycle...

OK, this is legit my thought process and it's funny because it's true....


  1. Marketing Qualified Lead provided by dating app
  2. Conversation transitions to texting and enters the dating pipeline as a sales qualified lead
  3. You decide to “Demo” them and meet up in person
  4. Date goes well and they move to “Trial” where you see if it works over weeks time
  5. You move into procurement with the “what are we” conversation
  6. You Closed Won if you enter into a relationship or Closed Lost if you don’t 


I've thought about creating a dating app where you could move people through your dating pipeline and that's where this workflow spawned. Anyways, just thought it was funny. Happy Friday!!! 🥳

I’m not in SaaS but have always said that prospects are like boyfriends. Some very good and some very bad. Very few would I consider committing my life to.

The app also needs a forecasting tool and an annoying manager (pop-ups) asking if the deal is closed yet 😅😅

Don't forget about the constant purge of the pipeline as well.

This has to be how dating apps use their CRM.  Next Steps: Lead sets mini-golf date for 5/25 at 7:00pm.  Who's paying? Unknown

If the relationship doesn't work out can I initiate a clawback to get my time and effort back?
