Hands down, the best thing about working at The Frisky is our amazing readers. We so heart all of your witty, thoughtful, and informative comments — heck, we even appreciate the mean ones. Sometimes, we can’t help but wonder about the faces behind the avatars. So we decided to bring back our regular column where we learn all about a Frisky reader. After the jump, meet Danielle Nathan, one of our most prolific commenters.
Please state your name or avatar, age, and location for The Friskyverse.
Danielle, 25, and New York.
How did you find the site?
I’m not 100 percent sure but I think one of my Facebook friends “Liking” it. It’s been so long!
What do you do all day, other than follow The Frisky, which is totally condoned?
I work at a non-profit doing professional education, which is another way of saying I plan medical meetings for doctors and healthcare professionals. I also know 99 percent of what’s going on on Facebook and give my roommates daily updates on who has said/posted what. It’s a gift I can’t deny the world.
What is your fave post in recent Frisky history?
“10 Played-Out Online Dating Messages That Guys Send Women.” This I can really relate to, sadly.
What are your pop culture guilty pleasures?
I can’t help myself that I’m obsessed with “The Bachelor.” I’ve been watching it religiously for seasons and I’m counting down the months till its summer and “Bachelor Pad” is back. I’ve even gotten one of my roommates addicted and we have a blast watching it and making guesses about who’s going home and who’s staying. When I went to visit my mom one of the first things she said to me was “do you think he’s REALLY going to pick Courtney?” (My answer was “No, Mom, and if he did he’s already broken up with her after watching the episodes.”)
Can you share your most embarrassing dating story? We always share ours. It’s only fair.
This is a toughie, as I tend to embarrass myself quite often. I think I’ll have to go with soon after I had a nasty break up with my on and off again boyfriend of six years and I was still very vulnerable I hung out with this super cute guy. I was definitely not ready to sleep with anyone yet and then kind of rushed into it. Afterwards I was totally crazy and screwed the whole thing up. I still turn red even just thinking about the texts I sent trying to seem like I wanted things to be “super casual.” Whoops!
Do you consider yourself a feminist? Why or why not?
I think most women are feminists. I think that the fact that men hold most of the offices that give them power to make laws over our bodies is bull crap and I’ll never understand how they try and get away with such things.
If The Frisky staff came over for dinner, what would you serve us?
I just bought a new pasta maker, so I’m going to have to go with homemade whole wheat spaghetti. I’m a big fan of dishing up all types of whole wheat pizzas too.
What type of skivvies do you have on right now?
Blue thong with beige lace around the edges. I just did all my laundry so I got my pick of the litter this morning!
What is your secret talent?
I somehow manage to attract the creepiest of the creeps. Online dating, walking down the street, 9p.m. in a bar, etc. I’m not sure what it is about me that is a magnetic force for weirdos. Last week a 70-year-old man stopped me on the street to tell me I was beautiful and he wanted to take me for lunch. He also gave me his card that showed he was a club promoter.
What’s an amazing book or movie that other Frisky readers absolutely must get their hands on right now?
“Like Crazy.” It’s coming out on DVD March 6th and everyone, EVERYONE needs to see this movie. Before it came out in theaters I spent an entire day just watching/re-watching the trailer. [I sobbbbbed watching this movie. Loved it. -- Editor]
Which celeb would you most want to get in bed with? Which celeb would you most want to marry?
I’d like to get Joseph Gordon-Levitt in bed and then ask him to marry me. He’s kind of my number one celebrity crush of all time.
What’s something you hope to see more of on The Frisky?
I need more updates on the staffs love lives since mine is pretty tame at the moment!
