Kayaking Date

—Friday, June 22, 2012— Holy shit — this was my 99th date. Only one more and I would be done. As such, this date excited me more than most others. Don’t get me wrong, the project had been fun, but I was looking forward its completion. The other surefire reason to be excited about the… Read more »

Dance Class Date

—Tuesday, June 5, 2012— Dancing was something I really enjoyed doing, but the idea of a classroom setting tripped me up. I was nervous to go from being a decent dancer in my demographic to doing things incorrectly in a class. However, I was more nervous about my date not showing up. Admittedly, I was… Read more »

—Saturday, May 26, 2012— A few dates made the list because they perfectly combined weirdness and curiosity. I had never LARPed before, but I knew that I wanted to try it at some point. I also knew that it would be a very unique date, at least for anyone who wasn’t already a part of… Read more »

Maybe another time. Maybe… Read more »

—Tuesday, March 20, 2012— I didn’t have a specific plan for how this date would go, as it merely required the presence of someone from the Midwest, and fortunately, I wasn’t given too much of a chance to over-think it. This date started off as a different date and while I had made plenty of adjustments… Read more »

College Friend Date

—Friday, March 9, 2012— I hadn’t seen Billie since the winter of 2007 and I missed her more than I probably realized, burning through my days in NYC while she went about her own life in sunny LA. All it took to close that nearly 3,000 mile gap was several hundred dollars, a vacation day… Read more »

Man Date

—Wednesday, December 14, 2011— Madison Square Garden — One of the greatest stages on Earth. My Morning Jacket — One of my favorite bands in the world. Me — Eating pizza alone and wondering when exactly I would see my date for that night. I started my date that night on my own because David… Read more »
