Last night on the second episode of “The Muppets,” Miss Piggy struggled with finding a date to the People’s Choice Awards and it got so bad — girl, we’ve been there — that she had to resort to being set up … by her ex Kermit, no less. Ugh, dating is tough out here. How’s a…

Tinder Is Rolling Out A New Super-Like Feature For Users With No Chill

Let’s talk about online dating for a second, OK? I have active accounts on Tinder, OK Cupid, Hinge and Coffee Meet Bagel (ugh, I hate this last one and its stupid name, so much I’m deleting it from my phone as soon as I’m done writing this post), but these days I mostly stick to…

Dater X: Don’t Block The Box

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.

Dealbreaker: I Got Called A Bitch On A Virtual First Date

For basically all of my adult life, I did not “date” in the conventional sense. I can count on one hand the number of times I went out to dinner with a near-stranger and suffered through the usual litany of “what do you do?”, “where are you from?”, “what flavor of toothpaste do you like…
