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 […]

This story is from Roxie, a 22-year-old student in Boston, as told to Raz: Hank and I were hooking up during my freshman year of college. He was gorgeous and totally jacked. We had tons of chemistry in bed, but in general, we had absolutely nothing in common and very little to talk about. Most […]

Red Velvet

There were lots of things that happened on my date with Jeremy that made me not like him. The first was that he showed up wearing a maroon velvet jacket, his too-long hair parted straight down the center and a smug half smile on his face. He was definitely not my type. Here are the […]

This story is from Jules, a 21-year-old student from Chicago, as told to Raz: This is the story of my first date. Funny thing was: I spent most of it having no idea I was even on a date.  I was 17, and my friend took me to a college party. I met a guy […]

I was excited about Eddie. In his JDate photos, he was super hot, tall and athletic. Plus, our emails proved that we actually had a lot in common. After about 5 messages back and forth, he asked for my number, which I happily handed over. When he called me the next night, I was nervous […]

This story is from Kendall, a 23-year-old assistant fashion buyer in NYC, as told to Raz. Andrew and I were friends. And I thought I was fine with that. One night, we were talking and joking about past relationships, and I was honestly shocked how jealous I got when he told me he was going […]

This story is from Lilian, a 24-year-old legal assistant from Boston, as told to Raz:  One weekend, I was at brunch with my friend Shelly and a lot of her friends. And when I say brunch, I mean drunk brunch. The mimosas and bloody Marys were flowing like water. At one point, Shelly informed me […]

Serendipity

There are some relationships that are just fated to happen. And no matter how many times you miss the signs, the universe will put you together again. That’s what I thought was happening with Dylan. We met for the first time on JDate, chatted for a while, and things were going well. He wasn’t really […]

This story is from Rebecca, a 25-year-old journalist in NYC, as told to Raz: I met Ashton through my friend Sarah, who said he was a great guy who recently got out of a serious relationship. I was skeptical at first, but then she showed me a picture, and he was so pretty! Plus, Sarah […]
