Co-Worker Date

—Sunday, May 27, 2012— This was a tricky one. I worked in an office with so few single women that I may have literally had two people to choose from when initially attempting this date.

Hiking Date

—Sunday, March 25, 2012— Holy God, this was the earliest date ever. My first alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. but it wasn’t until 5:47 a.m. that I was finally “awake”. I dragged myself out of bed and into the shower to get ready for a splendid day of hiking with Bobbie, who I knew… Read more »

Spend No Money Date

—Sunday, January 29, 2012— While riding the 2 train into Brooklyn, I watched two teens debate how to properly ask someone on a date. One young woman was adamantly telling a young man not to ask, “Want to hang out?” She told him he had to ask a woman on a real date. It had… Read more »

Brewery / Beer Tasting Date

Movie At Home Date

—Sunday, November 27th, 2011— A second date with a fellow dating blogger sounded like fun and a movie at home on a late November Sunday felt like the perfect choice.   As with the first time Ally and I went out, I arrived at the her subway stop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn early.

Build Something Date

—Friday, November 25, 2011— A date, like many things, is best created piece by piece, assembled by hand and created as a team.

Walking Date

—Sunday, November 6, 2011— Every so often, I would receive an email from an unknown woman, asking me to go on a date.

Tattoo Date

–Saturday, September 24, 2011– Why was I waking up at 7 a.m.? I was way too tired to be up so early. After a week of jet lag following a trip back from Hong Kong and having to pull an all nighter for work that Tuesday, I was absolutely exhausted. I didn’t need to be… Read more »

Coney Island Date

—Saturday, August 20, 2011— This date had been a long time coming. I was bouncing between nerves and excitement.

She saw me standing… Read more »
