Dater XY: How Long Will This Sexual Hangover Last?

Dater XY: How Long Will This Sexual Hangover Last?

Last Wednesday, The Chewer called to ask if I’d like to go on another date this weekend. I had been leaning against the “post-sex guilt” date but decided a short walk around the park and coffee wouldn’t kill me on a nice fall day.

As we walked around the park the usual awkward silence was intermixed with the occasional question and answer. Not wanting to waste anymore of each other’s time, I suggested we sit down on a bench and talk. Without missing a beat, The Chewer asked, “You don’t want to see me anymore, do you?” Keep reading »

The Lulu App Now Lets Men Ask Women For Anonymous Dating Advice, Thoughts?

Truth Bombs

Lulu, the app created last year to form an all-lady network and enable the power of girl talk, has launched a new feature that allows dudes to ask Lulu users dating questions. Lulu is most famous for its feature that enables women to rate men they’ve dated and leave comments about their character, but this new Q&A feature, called Truth Bombs, is a whole different animal. The Truth Bombs are anonymous posts that allow guys to ask their most burning questions about love, and enable Lulu users to anonymously reply. This is the first time the app has enabled guys and girls to interact. I don’t want to sound grim, but considering how full of pretense the dating world is these days, this kind of thing may be the only way for some people to seek unbiased opinions — and that makes the questions very enlightening to read.

Tinder’s CEO, Sean Rad, announced at the Forbes Under 30 Summit that Tinder is going to start introducing paid features to the app in November. No word as to what exactly those features will be, but Forbes is speculating that it could include breaking open location restrictions and options for platonic or business-related meetups. Good for Tinder! Apparently they’ve been focusing on growth for the last two years and are just now starting to work out a way to monetize the app. Oh, and don’t worry, the service as it stands is going to remain free.

Dater X: An Ex Returns To Stir The Pot

Dater X: An Ex Returns To Stir The Pot

Update: Baby Face and I are moving full steam ahead, getting together as often as possible and still having amazing sex (with only a brief hiatus during Aunt Flo’s visit), which is why it’s so typical that one of my exes resurfaced— looking all handsome like he popped right out of a J.Crew catalogue— and tried his absolute damnedest to lure me back in. And he almost — almost — had me. Keep reading »

Dealbreaker: He Doesn’t “See Color”

Dealbreaker: He Doesn't "See Color"

The saying goes if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere: Dating is too often a joke, the job market is highly competitive, the rent is too high, and a simple task of doing your laundry can end up in a mile walk through snow just to get to the nearest laundry service — and after all your hard work? You get rewarded by having all your underwear stolen. Not having laundry in your overpriced pad is a popular dealbreaker amongst us renters in the city. A well-paying job in New Jersey is a popular dealbreaker amongst job-seekers living in NYC.  In a city with a ratio of 57 percent women and 43 percent men, us single ladies have had to hang up a lot of dating dealbreakers that would previously have had us running for the hills.

Tinder is pretty basic, and at this point, everyone knows the drill. Swipe right if you like what you see, swipe left if you don’t. Message people at your leisure, while spending a lot of time dodging dicey messages from dudes you probably don’t want to talk to. Easy enough, but maybe your Tinder strategy isn’t really netting the kind of dudes you want. Maybe you’re too picky, swiping left on mostly everybody you see. Maybe you amass matches, collecting them like so many back issues of The New Yorker, recoiling in horror every time one of them messages you. Maybe Tinder paralyzes you with fear, only because you’re just not comfortable with meeting someone through what is basically an app for hand jobs and one night stands. Whatever. We all have our things. But, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. Change your game, and maybe Tinder won’t be such a slog. Here are some Tinder strategies you might not be using. Keep reading »
