WotWentWrong on that date? App gets the dumper's explanation

WotWentWrong is a Web app that lets dumped daters know exactly why their love interests are no longer answering their phones calls and text messages.

There may be a million reasons why your hot date didn't call to go out again. It could be your Celine Dion shirt, your collection of "Star Wars" Pez dispensers, or the Steve Wozniak tattoo on your butt.

WotWentWrong is a Web app that takes the mystery out of the dating dumps. It gives the dumper an opportunity to tell you what went wrong so you can try to avoid the same hiccups with your next prospect.

Using WotWentWrong is a lot faster and easier than Facebook stalking or dropping desperate hints to friends-of-friends. You simply customize a form letter chosen from a variety of styles, provide some feedback about your date, and let the app take care of the rest.

The dumper gets an e-mail or text message asking for a response. (Naturally, the dumper could choose to dump the request into a spam folder, but let's assume the dumper plays along.) He or she can choose from a wide selection of preset or customized excuses and critiques, such as incompatible tastes in music, differing religious views, or poor hygiene.

Along with the response, the service gives you some helpful tips for dealing with your date's criticism, like wearing headphones rather than blasting country crunk at your Mozart-loving beau.

WotWentWrong won't patch things up with your lost dream date, but at least you'll know it was a bad idea to drop your skivvies in the middle of a candlelit dinner to show off your tattoo of Woz riding a Segway.
