Bite Me

April 9, 2013


This story is from Nick, a 26-year-old paramedic from Chicago, as told to Raz: I met Jane in a college class. She was super cute, so when we were assigned to a group project together, I took the opportunity to get her number and invited her to a party. We hit it off, and started […]

Elbow Room

December 20, 2012


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 […]

Desperate Guys

September 26, 2012


This story is from Kate, a 24-year-old merchandising assistant in NYC, as told to Raz:  A while back, while I was living in L.A., an old college friend invited me over for a party on a Saturday night. I didn’t know anyone, so I went straight to the kitchen to mix myself a cocktail. The […]

The Back Door

September 7, 2012


This story is from Rebecca, a 25-year-old journalist in NYC, as told to Raz: The first time I hooked up with Damien, this happened. Let’s be honest, the disaster of this date was not entirely his fault. The condom thing was all his roommate, and the rest of it… well, you can’t blame a guy […]

This story is from Christina, a 25-year-old dance teacher in Boston, as told to Raz: I met Nus at a speed dating event. He seemed charming, funny and confident—everything I don’t usually see in a man. We were on a second date, and he suggested karaoke. We both got a little drunk, and belted out […]

Lord of the Flies

July 23, 2012


Tyler’s OkCupid profile was funny, and ended with “*Also available in sober.” I should have taken that as a sign. Instead, I thought it was clever and sent him a message. He responded, one thing led to another, and he asked me out. We decided to meet the next Saturday afternoon for coffee. I’d been […]

What Lies Beneath

July 13, 2012


This story is from Roxie, a 22-year-old grad student in Boston, as told to Raz: I’d heard about Johnny before I met him. Let’s just say his reputation was somewhat slutty. No, it was very slutty. But when we met at a party, we really clicked. He was so cute, we had so much in […]

Love Bites

June 22, 2012


This story is from Kate, a 24-year-old merchandising assistant in NYC, as told to Raz: Steven was introduced to me by a friend one night at a club. He was a year younger than me, and it turns out, went to my high school. After talking for a while, we discovered that he’d actually been […]

Never Let Your Ex-Boyfriend Set You Up

May 24, 2012


This story is from Ellie, a 23-year-old graduate student living in Los Angeles, as told to Raz: I have a really good relationship with my ex—we parted as friends—so when he introduced me to his new roommate, Tony, and suggested we’d hit it off, I trusted that he was a good guy. Tony and I […]

One of Everything

May 22, 2012


I have to admit, I like to date men who make more money than I do. Mostly, this is because I make so little money that I can barely afford to live in NYC, and making less than I do would mean you are probably homeless. Luckily, I’ve discovered online dating, which I can use […]
