This story if from Dahlia, a 28-year-old actress in NYC, as told to Raz: In hindsight I’m surprised I didn’t die after all the unwise decisions I made on my first date with Frank. We’d met online in Winter 2008. He was from Williamsburg, and invited me to meet him at the Blackbird Cafe. I […]

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. […]

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 […]

So… where were we? Oh yes, after the epic getting-to-speed-dating adventure (Read about it here), Lucy, Kathy and I were all set to begin. Lucy was at the bar, chugging beers and awaiting her first suitor, while Kathy and I had been positioned in a booth, awkwardly preparing to go on two separate dates in […]

I’ve been wanting to try speed dating since I started this blog. As something of a dating enthusiast, I can’t think of anything more up my alley than cramming twenty five-minute dates into one night. After all, when was the last time it took me more than five minutes to decide whether a guy was […]

I was excited to meet Brian, a find on OkCupid. He was a dentist (a real job!), went to an Ivy League school (a smarty!) and he actually called me on the phone to set up our date (a gentleman!). We planned to meet at Swine in the West Village, and on the day of our […]

Pulling A Fast One

You know a date is really bad when it’s so short that your bus ride home counts as a transfer from your bus ride there. I think my entire evening with Xavier lasted 45 minutes. It actually didn’t start out terribly, but I knew from the beginning that we were very different. He was from […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tina, one of my closest friends, had just broken up with her boyfriend and was devastated. So we obviously decided to go out, have many drinks and flirt with boys. It was a Thursday night, and Tina, her coworker Alison and I headed to Professor Thom’s in the East Village. Tina started ripping shots immediately—and […]
