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 […]

A Clean Getaway

November 12, 2012


This story is from Lilian, a 24-year-old legal assistant from Boston, as told to Raz: This isn’t really my story, but considering I played a crucial role in it, I’m gonna tell it anyway. My freshman year of college, my dorm room was next to Jack’s. Jack was a sophomore and had a reputation for […]

Being Shirtless (And Other Dating Profile Photo Mistakes)

October 10, 2012


I know I’m not supposed to judge a book by its cover—or a man by his dating profile picture. But no online dater in her right mind would agree to go out with a guy without giving his picture some serious consideration. It continues to shock me how many guys post photos that are laughingly […]

This story is from Kate, a 24-year-old merchandising assistant in NYC, as told to Raz: Just a warning: This bad date may have been my fault. OK, it was definitely my fault. You see, when Dalton invited me to a formal party as his date, I was nervous. My general reaction to being nervous? I […]

Pirate’s Booty

May 28, 2012


This story is from Rebecca, a 25-year-old journalist from NYC, as told to Raz: Ah, summer is here again. And that reminds me of last summer—specifically, of Pirate Con. If you’re unfamiliar with this epic gathering of New Yorkers, here’s the gist: we get dressed up like pirates and go on a long bar crawl […]

To Grandmother’s House We Go

May 26, 2012


David and I had a great first date. He introduced me to some hidden treasures of the upper east side (a neighborhood I rarely venture up to.) Earl’s was like a pure cheese wonderland: grilled cheese, beer cheese, tomato soup with cheese. Have I mentioned that cheese is the key to my heart? Then we […]
