Do you ever feel like everyone’s out to get you?  This week has been like that, at least when it comes to my dating life.  The city has been nothing but one big cockblock.  Er, clitblock.

Dater X: I Think I’m Ready For A Friend With Benefits

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.

Dating Don’ts: Is It A Booty Call Or Nah?

We’ve all been there.

Having been a fan of “Breaking Upwards,” the heartbreaking debut film from co-writers/co-stars/cohabitators Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones, I couldn’t wait to see the couple’s follow up, “Lola Versus.” Starring mumblecore goddess Greta Gerwig, “Lola Versus” tells the story of a woman on the verge of 30 who’s left understandibly devastated after her fiance dumps her three weeks before… More »
