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 if from Dahlia, a 28-year-old actress in NYC, as told to Raz: In hindsight I’m surprised I didn’t die after all the unwise decisions I made on my first date with Frank. We’d met online in Winter 2008. He was from Williamsburg, and invited me to meet him at the Blackbird Cafe. I […]

Being Hit On

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. […]

Elbow Room

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 […]

Deja Vu

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 […]

This story is from Kate, a 25-year-old (happy birthday, Kate!) merchandising assistant in NYC, as told to Raz:   It was a Saturday night, and I went out for an old friend’s birthday party. It was a little awkward because her roommate Lara and I were kind of on the outs. Regardless, I showed up to […]

In Five New York Minutes (Part 2)

So… where were we? Oh yes, after the epic getting-to-speed-dating adventure (Read about it here), Lucy, Kathy and I were all set to begin. Lucy was at the bar, chugging beers and awaiting her first suitor, while Kathy and I had been positioned in a booth, awkwardly preparing to go on two separate dates in […]

Pulling A Fast One

You know a date is really bad when it’s so short that your bus ride home counts as a transfer from your bus ride there. I think my entire evening with Xavier lasted 45 minutes. It actually didn’t start out terribly, but I knew from the beginning that we were very different. He was from […]

The Back Door

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 […]

Serendipity

There are some relationships that are just fated to happen. And no matter how many times you miss the signs, the universe will put you together again. That’s what I thought was happening with Dylan. We met for the first time on JDate, chatted for a while, and things were going well. He wasn’t really […]
