Online dating can be a wonderful thing, and plenty of couples — including our own Jessica and her husband — have met and found love through sites like OK Cupid, Tinder and Match. But it can also be a complete and utter shitshow, especially for women. While there are plenty of cool single dudes to meet online, there are also loads of entitled, misogynistic assholes littering your inbox and refusing to be ignored. Our friends over at Whisper asked their female users to submit the worst messages they’ve received from men they refused to chat with and the results were sadly and unsurprisingly vile. Let’s hope these dudes spend the rest of their lives alone. Keep reading »
I’ve had a high sex drive since I was a teenager. Over the last 14 years, whether single or coupled up, I’ve been fortunate enough to never really go ‘sexless.’ In relationships— whether they last three months or three years— my libido generally maintains the momentum of that of the Energizer Bunny. I certainly don’t have a sex addiction, but it’s safe to say I am, and always have been, a pleasure enthusiast.

The three ladies met up at a pub while he was out of the country on vacation and decided to confront him at the airport when he returned home. Keep reading »
True facts: I’m still on OKCupid, mostly to gawk at people and to try to answer ALL THE QUESTIONS. I’ve answered 1503 of them. I’m behind.
That being said, I don’t think they’re always as to-the-point as they could be, and some of them are just plain bizarre (and they get weirder the more you answer, trust me on that). I have some ideas for questions that would make it easier for me to discern who should be my friend or not: Keep reading »
From now on, when people ask me what being single in New York City is like, I’m going to point them towards this video. The dude site Elite Daily profiled a creepy homeless dude named Joe. who proudly describes how he gets by on the cold, hard streets of NYC by stealing supplies like Red Bull and hair gel from Duane Reade and picking up women to bang — excuse me, “lay the good pipe” — so he has a place to sleep. That this guys is actually successful at the latter shows just how dire the dating situation is. [NYMag.com]
