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 […]

This story is from Corey, a 26-year-old nanny in NYC, as told to Raz: I’m not a huge fan of online dating, but I admit, whenever I’m at a low point in my romantic life, I’ll hop back on good old OkCupid to boost my morale. During one time back on the online dating train, […]

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. […]

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 […]

This story if from Dahlia, a 28-year-old actress in NYC, as told to Raz: I was waiting for some friends at a restaurant in Little Italy when a guy approached me holding flowers. He told me he liked my peach coat. I was a little sketched out that this stranger was chatting me up, but […]

This story if from Dahlia, a 28-year-old actress in NYC, as told to Raz: I met Tom on OkCupid. We chatted on the phone, and he seemed really great. He had an interesting background—had been in the navy—and was about to graduate from the police academy. We made plans to go out, and he drove […]

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 […]

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 […]
