September 10, 2013

My friends and I spent Labor Day weekend on Fire Island. Our first night there, after a rousing game of Musical Chairs Flip Cup (You’ve never played Musical Chairs Flip Cup?!

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 […]
