The Line Is a Dot To You

Brett was an OkCupid find. Online, he seemed well-educated and sweet. In person, it turns out, he was more of an ignorant asshole. Here are a few examples of our first date conversations: Raz: “A friend of mine is going through a bad break up, but the best way to get over someone is…” Brett: […]

Nice Guys Finish Last

In case you haven’t noticed: I’m super judgmental. People always say this like it’s a bad thing, but I think my skill to make snappy decisions about whether someone is awesome or horrible is something of a super power. This handy trick has made dating very difficult (as you can see), so sometimes, if I […]

Disclaimer Laden Sex-osity (and Other Noteworthy Notes)

It’s that time of the month again, kids. Where I share the worst online dating messages that have cluttered my inbox. I don’t ask a lot from men when it comes to messaging me online. Say hi. Tell me I seem cute and interesting. Maybe, if you’re really good, mention something I talk about on […]

Dating 101: A Lecture-Based Course

February 12, 2013

Most online dates begin the same way: we re-hash everything we’ve already discussed in our way-too-many OkCupid messages. Of course, I’ve usually just re-read those OkCupid messages on the way to said date (I like to be prepared!), so this is unnecessary. But boys tend to opt for wasting the first twenty minutes of a […]

Being Hit On

This story is the definition of why meeting guys at bars is awful. Basically, drunk boys are the absolute worst. The other night, I was out at a friend’s birthday party at 3 Sheets Saloon in the West Village.  A guy approached. I couldn’t tell if he was with the party or a random bystander. […]

When Leonard messaged me on OKCupid, I thought he was a little goofy-looking for my taste, but went with the flow, and we actually ended up having a good email conversation. We even discovered that we had a friend in common, so of course, I asked her about him. She said he was a little […]

Elbow Room

I recently had surgery on my right hand. My right hand is my dominant hand. (If you’ve been noticing a decline in posts lately, this is the reason.) But still committed to the greater good (a.k.a. this blog) even though I couldn’t type or draw, I didn’t cancel the multiple dates I had set up […]

Feedback From a Nice Jewish White Girl with a Naughty Side

December 14, 2012

Continuing a fun tradition I started a while back (here), these are a few of the most awesomely bad messages I received throughout the month of November. The emails are in their entirety and have unfortunately not been edited at all. “So am I eventually going to get a message back? If not, let me […]

Heads Up

Aaron and I met on JDate. He was 32, worked in finance and was kind of a cutie. I was excited when he asked me out, but our original date plans got all screwed up by Hurricane Sandy, so we resorted to a weeklong text conversation. Our text flirting was going well, and when both […]

Welp, Back to Being Single

The best and worst part of online dating usually has nothing to do with the dates. It’s all about the messages. Here are the ten most creepy, hilarious or just plain weird unsolicited messages I’ve gotten this month (Yup, this is only one month’s worth). Unfortunately, they have not been edited at all (except one […]
