Woman creates exit survey for ex partners to fill out - and everyone is asking why didn't we think of this?

Katie has been hailed a genius!

Breaking up is never easy, and when you aren't the one who initiates it you can be left wondering where it all went wrong. Was it something you said? Was it them? Was it you?
Getting some clarity around why is key to achieving closure, and this is why the survey we're about to tell you about is so genius: A woman named Katie has created an 'exit survey' - a bit like an 'exit interview' when you leave a job - that she gives to all of her ex partners to fill out when they break up.
It contains all the questions you need to know the answers to, like:
  • What is wrong with Katie?
  • What is wrong with you?
  • At what point did you know this wouldn't work out?
  • Would you like to remain on the mailing list in case Katie revisits your application or another opportunity opens up?
Katie's exit form was shared on Twitter by a friend, who said, "there's this girl i know who sends an exit survey to every guy she casually AND seriously dates."
Understandably, the tweet has gone viral.
"This is a work of genius. Finally dating has the structure and administrative bureaucracy it has always needed," tweeted one.
"Data driven decisions are v important," offered a second.
"I have GOT to start doing this," tweeted a third.
Of course, just as some exes disappear from your life without a trace, some are not going to fill out this survey for you.
