I was one of the skeptics. Online dating sounded kinda lame to me. It sounded kinda like giving up. After all, I was living in New York, a city teeming with eligible bachelors. In theory. I wasn’t meeting any of them, but I was told they were out there. And I wanted to go o…

If you’ve online dated, you’ve probably gotten one or two or 17 really terrible messages from strange, socially maladjusted weirdos.

An Internal Monologue While Perusing Online Dating Matches

I recently started dabbling in online dating again. I like to look at profiles while I watch TV. This internal monologue reflects a hodgepodge of recent “binge sessions.”

New episode of “Revenge”? Hell yeah. Finally. Got my wine. Well, maybe I should top it off so I don’t have to get up.

5 Dating Sites For Terrible People To Find Terrible Love

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get back into the dating scene, but there’s only one problem: It has been mathematically proven that I’m terrible at it. And I finally understand why: It’s because I’m a terrible person. But that doesn’t mean I’m doomed to be awful alone, because at last, there’s a dating…

The Top 10 White Lies People Tell In Online Dating Profiles

Research has indicated that as much as 90 percent of people lie in their online dating profiles. Women in their 20s and 30s slyly deduct anywhere from five to 20 lbs. from their weight, while men tend to lie about income, education level and, yes, relationship status. Yikes.

Here, we count the way…

Last night, I was complaining to John DeVore about the horrors of online dating, specifically sharing choice lines from particularly appalling profiles. He, in turn, sent me this video. Point taken, JDV. It could be much, much, much worse.

Real world dating is tough. As a 21-year-old student in a busy city, it’s been hard for me to find Mr. Right.

Girl Talk: I Snooped His Online Dating Profile

Less than an hour after I (mostly) finished filling out my profile, my first email arrived: “Hey. You have a great profile. I like what you have to say. You should post a picture!”

Get Paid To Date (Er, Escort?) On

Don’t waste your precious time and money on dinner and drinks with a fugly troll. And don’t be punished for your “high standards.”
