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. […]

This story is from Jane, a 33-year-old baker in NYC, as told to Raz:  Over the summer, I met Andrew on Match.com. On our first date, he was nice, but a little fidgety. Our dinner table had a flower and a candle on it, and he made a habit of nervously sticking the flower into […]

When Leonard messaged me on OKCupid, I thought he was a little goofy-looking for my taste, but went with the flow, and we actually ended up having a good email conversation. We even discovered that we had a friend in common, so of course, I asked her about him. She said he was a little […]

This story is from Dee, a 25-year-old fashion planner in NYC, as told to Raz:   After a long night out with my girlfriends, we all went for pizza. A cute guy at the table next to me introduced himself. I was a little distracted by the drunken deliciousness of my slice, but I managed […]

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 is from Amy, a 25-year-old arts journalist in NYC, as told to Raz: Todd and I met online. He sounded interesting in his emails, so we went back and forth for a while. Eventually, he asked, “So how’s this whole online dating thing been going for you?” Kind of an awkward convo with […]

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 […]

This story is from Megan, a 28-year-old writer in NYC, as told to Raz: I was kind of a late bloomer. As a freshman in college, I still hadn’t had my first kiss. And I was getting antsy. The crew team at my school had to be dry for Spring season, and as soon as […]
