You’re on Tinder, right? Seriously? But anyone who’s anyone is on Tinder! “What is Tinder?” you ask. Tinder is online dating on crack. It’s OkCupid meets Grinder. Better yet: It’s speed dating meets Angry Birds. With Tinder, you can quickly flip through potential guys in your area on your iPhone, while you watch TV or […]

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: […]

This story is from Elton, a 28-year-old architect in NYC, as told to Raz: I met Melissa on OkCupid. She was Jewish. My dad is Jewish; My mom is not.

It’s that time of the month again, kids. Where I share the worst online dating messages that have cluttered my inbox. I don’t ask a lot from men when it comes to messaging me online. Say hi. Tell me I seem cute and interesting. Maybe, if you’re really good, mention something I talk about on […]

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 […]
