Hammer Time

June 27, 2012


This story is from Rebecca, a 25-year-old journalist in NYC, as told to Raz: After my first date with Alan, I really, really liked him. After several online dating disasters, I was thrilled, and became one of those girls who would check my phone every hour just hoping he’d called. When he hadn’t called after […]

Got Mole?

May 14, 2012


I have two moles over my upper lip, and I’ve always hated them. As a kid, I was even convinced that I would keep growing more and more of them until I was left with a mole mustache. I had recurring nightmares about it. While the dreams have subsided, my self consciousness about my “beauty […]

Bahama Drama

Hungry, Hungry Human

Starting this blog (i.e. going on three times the dates I normally would) comes with its definite perks. Mainly, I get a whole lot of free dinners. But, as a general rule, I think just drinks for a first date is the way to go. After all, there’s nothing worse than knowing before you even […]

Confessions of a Heightoholic

April 12, 2012


I’m Raz, and I’m a heightoholic. Well, a recovering heightoholic. Also known as heightism, heightoholism is a common side effect of a very tall ex-boyfriend. Though I’m short (5′ 3″), it’s difficult for me to give any guy under 6′ a second glance. Online dating sites are probably among the most dangerous places for a […]
