Mom Date

—Tuesday, June 26, 2012— If you’re having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but a mom ain’t one. In fact, this mom was the opposite of a problem — she was my 100th date! For all the preparation I’d done throughout the year, it was actually kind of unnerving… Read more »

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 »

Bartender Date

—Saturday, June 16, 2012 — One myth I wasn’t able to truly able to debunk during OHD? That female bartenders were the most impossible dates to get. I found a way to make it happen, of course, but it wasn’t easy. A week before this date, I had come home after a long Friday at work and… Read more »

Street Food Date

—Saturday, June 9, 2012— Sometimes a great date just appears out of thin air and wants to eat greasy food with you. Pepper had sent me a message on Facebook at the very end of May, and about a week and a half later, she was driving down from Central Massachusetts to go on a… Read more »

LARP Date

—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 »

Ice Cream Date

—Wednesday, April 18, 2012— There she was. Three rows up. Sitting alone. My date was at my improv show and I saw her take her seat just before my team went backstage to ready ourselves. As if the show itself wasn’t enough to make me nervous, I also wanted to specifically impress Kathleen. Several weeks… Read more »

Zoo Date

—Sunday, April 15, 2012 — New York City was filled with animals, but only a couple zoos. Its inhabitants routinely caged themselves in small habitats, mindlessly ate whatever the authorities told them to and sectioned themselves off in different parts of the city. They ventured out more than the mammals at the zoo, but to… Read more »

Celebrity Date

—Sunday, April 1, 2012— Finding a celebrity to date was certainly a tall order to fulfill, even with a year to do so and my amazingly good looks. Fortunately, a friend hooked me up with a celebrity date who was even better looking than me and incredibly down to earth. Crazy, I know. Then again,… Read more »

Shopping Date

—Sunday, February 5, 2012— It was Super Bowl Sunday and the New England Patriots, my hometown football team, were playing against the much hated New York Giants. Rather than watch the game, I was going out shopping, because One Hundred Dates had a wonderful way of ruining my life. My date for the day was… Read more »

Exercise Date

—Tuesday, January 31, 2012— Lara’s approach was not what I had expected. She walked up to me so casually, I had no idea she was my date, and yes, I had seen a picture of her before. “Hey, I’m Lara,” she said with no inflection or emotion behind it. “Lot’s of people hug, but that’s… Read more »

Afternoon Tea Date

—Monday, January 16, 2012— I always appreciated a long weekend, and throughout One Hundred Dates, having a Monday off from work was even better than usual. It meant I could get some sleep, catch up on writing or go on a date. I did all three of those things on Martin Luther King Jr Day… Read more »

Winery / Wine Tasting Date

—Friday, December 23rd, 2011— Throughout One Hundred Dates, there were numerous times when distinct worlds of my life would collide, but as I approached the half-way point in my year, there had not been a date more coincidentally remarkable or as personally significant as this one. I was in Napa Valley, California (St. Helena, to… Read more »
