Jeepers Creepers

September 14, 2012


This story is from Nikki, a 24-year-old retail associate in NYC, as told to Raz: Some guys really just ruin it for the rest of them. Like this guy who effectively turned me off from OkCupid altogether with his first and only message. I’m guessing he was going for clever, but his creepiness got the […]

The Great Sweatshirt Caper

July 11, 2012


This story is from Lilian, a 24-year-old legal assistant from Boston, as told to Raz: Austin and I had been dating—well, hooking up—for a couple weeks when he invited me to a party at his acquaintance Victor’s apartment. He told me I could invite a friend or two, so I asked my roommate Christina to […]

Not Your Average Joe

June 13, 2012


The subject of my next story is super famous, so in the interest of protecting his identity, we’ll just call him Joe Shmo.

April 7, 2012


Halfway through our first cocktail on our first date, Dan asked me if I’d had any truly disastrous dating experiences. Little did he know, I collect disaster dates. I shared this story, and threw the question right back at him. “Nothing too bad,” he said. “Just one girl who came on a little too strong.” […]

Here’s Waldo!

April 2, 2012


There’s nothing quite like meeting people the good old fashioned way. You know it: you’re at a loud, crowded bar, and as soon as you mention that that guy over there is kind of cute, your best girl friend has tapped him on the shoulder and asked, “Have you met Raz?” So smooth. That’s how […]
