Lord of the Flies

Tyler’s OkCupid profile was funny, and ended with “*Also available in sober.” I should have taken that as a sign. Instead, I thought it was clever and sent him a message. He responded, one thing led to another, and he asked me out. We decided to meet the next Saturday afternoon for coffee. I’d been […]

This story if from Roxie, a 22-year-old grad student in Boston, as told to Raz: I have a confession to make: I didn’t stop seeing Johnny after this happened.  Yeah, yeah, he was a player with really, really gross things under his bed, but I mentioned the really awesome sex right?
