This story is from Naty, a 32-year-old administrative assistant from Brooklyn, NY, as told to Raz: My online dating tool of choice was OkCupid. While browsing, I met Timothy, and we hit it off pretty well. He seemed like a cool guy by email and text, so we decided to meet up. I’d mentioned in […]

  Back by popular demand (and because I’ve received so many bad OkCupid messages that I’m starting to think these men know I’m collecting them), here’s a compilation of some of the best bad emails I’ve received lately. They are unedited, they are unfiltered, and they definitely didn’t get a response. 1. “So when are […]

This story is from Sofia, a premed student in Seattle, WA, as told to Raz:  I have to admit, I was looking for a one night stand. I met Ryan on OkCupid and he seemed pretty cool. He was a computer science and applied math double major at Berkeley and I definitely find intelligence attractive. […]

Wipe the Smile Off My Face

August 27, 2013

Here’s a doozy so big and so intense that it deserves its own post. I received this brief little message on OkCupid at the beginning of last month: “Gosh, your smile <3” Then, 18 days later, after no response from me: “Gosh, am so in love with your smile ❤ Could imagine waking up every […]

Recent OKCupid Gold (Nothing Gay Though Because I’m Straight.)

Ok guys, I’m not saying that every message you’re sending me on an online dating site needs to be an individually crafted personal ode to why I’m the perfect girl for you. In fact, that sounds really creepy. More often than not, a simple “Hey, how are you?” does the trick just fine. With that […]

Dude Acts Like a Lady

Sure, I like a guy who’s in touch with his feminine side—who’s not afraid to cuddle or watch a romantic comedy—but Scott, a recent online find, had me actually worried about what might be between his legs. Why? There were four reasons: 1. The face. I told him I was going to my sister’s graduation a […]

Jon, an online find, treated our first date like a game of 20 questions, complete with well-thought-out, conversation-starting brain teasers that he’d clearly memorized many dates ago. What he hadn’t practiced, however, was how to seamlessly slip them into conversation. As soon as there was the slightest lull, he’d hit me with, What were you […]

Because it’s been a while (two whole months!) since I’ve done one of these posts (and because men just won’t stop sending me these terrible things), here are the ten most awesomely bad online dating messages that have recently come across my inbox.  “hey, What are you up to this weekend, would you like to […]

The Line Is a Dot To You

Brett was an OkCupid find. Online, he seemed well-educated and sweet. In person, it turns out, he was more of an ignorant asshole. Here are a few examples of our first date conversations: Raz: “A friend of mine is going through a bad break up, but the best way to get over someone is…” Brett: […]

Nice Guys Finish Last

In case you haven’t noticed: I’m super judgmental. People always say this like it’s a bad thing, but I think my skill to make snappy decisions about whether someone is awesome or horrible is something of a super power. This handy trick has made dating very difficult (as you can see), so sometimes, if I […]
