There’s no clear road map for Dating. Though we wish it otherwise, nothing is black and white. We all love-taking chances. But checking someone’s fridge offers great insight into a person and their lifestyle.

After living the single life for over twenty years, John Stonehill knew one thing: checking his date’s refrigerator revealed great insight into the kind of person he was going out with. So he decided to share his experience with the dating public and spark some flames in the process.

Check their Fridge’s premise is that for everything anyone needs to know about their date, all anyone needs to do is, well, check their fridge. It’s something Stonehill believes everyone can relate to. Everyone has had dates and everyone has refrigerators.

Though he married last summer, Stonehiill lived the single life in NY and LA since the nineties, and the man has seen a lot of fridges. “I hate to say it, but yes, I’ve stuck my nose in a lot of cold places.”

For his blog, Readers submit photos of their dates’ (or own) fridges and Stonehill breaks down what’s in store, including a Fridge Dating Scorecard with the kind of odds that all daters want to know: their chances of sex, marriage and if their date is a bunny-boiler.

The blog also includes Dating Tips and a weekly Fridge vs. Fridge segment (CTF’s version of Not or Not). Stonehill truly believes when single, people should go out with as many candidates as possible. But as he tells readers, it’s smart to play the odds.

“There’s no clear road map for Dating. Though we wish it otherwise, nothing is black and white. We all love-taking chances. But checking someone’s fridge offers great insight into a person and their lifestyle. Archetypes exist for a reason. Here’s a fun way to pick up some clues and direction.”

Stonehill claims he’d be a much better match-maker setting up two people based on their refrigerators than their pictures. Is a match-making service in the works? The RDE (Refrigerator Dating Expert) says stay tuned.

And when asked about his wife’s fridge? “It was a layup: a couple of expensive bottles of wine, 12-pack of Fiji Water, some gourmet condiments and not much else, in a high-end stainless steel GE. She was clearly a busy executive who didn’t cook and wasn’t home much. If she was home, we’re talking takeout.”

Stonehill had his fridge epiphany back in ‘98. On a second date, he found himself back at her place, sure that a budding romance was in the works. And then he checked her fridge. “Her fridge smelled like a Porto-potty on day three at Coachella. It overflowed with the moldiest, most rotten-take out I had ever encountered.”

From checking his date’s fridge, he learned that she wasn’t the Nurturer, wasn’t the Boss and wasn’t the Vegan. She was “Wackypack”, and even though her nightly 3:00 AM arguments with his answering machine was still weeks away, right there he knew what she was. ”I stuck my head into the looking glass and all was there to see. A healthy headed girl just doesn’t let her fridge get that putrid.”

And Stonehill’s theory was born. Check their Fridge launched in August and Stonehill has already been invited as a guest on ABC, Fox and Sirius in September.

For anyone looking to stick their head into the fridge looking glass, http://www.checktheirfridge.com is live and waiting.
