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 »

Ferry Ride Date

–Sunday, June 17, 2012– Gather round, ladies and gentlemen, for the dating sensation of the summer season! In this edition of One Hundred Dates, our hero (that would be yours truly) takes to the waterways of New York City on a mission to impress a Bible Belt gal and dance to that big band jazz… Read more »

Foreigner Date

—Saturday, June 2, 2012— Foreign women — whoa baby. There were a number of female qualities that could draw me in and make me weak in the knees, but being from another country was probably A-number-1. I had been steadily reaching out to foreign women throughout the project, but none of those interactions had borne… Read more »

Craigslist Date

—Thursday, April 26, 2012— Craigslist: The Wild West of internet dating. There were no real rules on Craigslist, a site where people placed ads seeking and offering any and all kinds of intimate encounters, even prostitution was offered up there. By 2012, was a taboo place to seek out a date and that was exactly why… Read more »

Breakfast Date

—Friday, April 20, 2012— Even the best laid plans could go wrong. But this plan was pretty cool. It was adventurous even, especially considering that it revolved around a meal that many people simply skipped. Isabelle had emailed me almost a month before our date, after she had stumbled upon my tumblr via her tumblr, or something… 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 »

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 »

Suburbs Date

—Friday, March 30, 2012— Admittedly, this date was supposed to be with someone else. In fact, it was supposed to be spent with the only person from my high school I’d ever considered an enemy, which would have been perfect for a date in my hometown, but alas, that fell through. Maybe another time. Maybe… Read more »

Midwestern Date

—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 »

Club Date

—Friday, March 16, 2012— You know what I always say: Don’t be a schlub in the club. This date was definitely the one time I had to worry about that the most, since I’d actually be in a club for once. Hopefully, I wouldn’t be a schlub. This date all began on OkCupid with some… Read more »

Drive-in Movie Theater Date

—Saturday, March 10, 2012— I had been in Los Angeles less than 24 hours, I’d already been on one date and I was gearing up to go on my second. Though my first date had been with a college friend of many years, this second one was with a total stranger. It may also be… Read more »

Unplanned Date

—Saturday, March 3, 2012— It was about 10:20 p.m. on a Saturday night and I was sitting in my apartment, taking notes that afternoon’s Lunch Date, and I had just watched a two hour episode of Downton Abbey. It was only then that I saw that I had a message in my OkCupid from a woman… Read more »

Lunch Date

—Saturday, March 3, 2012— For one reason or another, lunch dates seemed to be relegated to the province of weekday office breaks and spur of the moment decisions to eat together. On the weekends, brunch reigned supreme and lunch seemed to take a couple days off. When I asked Sandra to lunch, for our second… Read more »

Snow Fun Date

—Sunday, February 26, 2012— It was around 8:45 a.m. on a Sunday and I had woken up a later than I had hoped. My date, Sonia, was picking me up at “9-ish,” so that we could spend the day snowboarding, and I was supposed to have breakfast ready for our road trip. The late wake… Read more »

Laundry Date

—Tuesday, February 21, 2012— By nature, I was a procrastinator, and while laundry was something that I definitely tended to put off, eight months was a really long time. To be fair, I had “done laundry” in the previous eight months. However, this was the first time I’d actually washed my own clothes since moving… Read more »

Nothing But Shots Date

—Friday, January 27, 2012— Valerie was supposed to go out with me months before this date and by that I mean, I was supposed to ask her out months earlier but I never did. I was also supposed to ask her on this date because she worked for a vodka company, so it seemed like… Read more »

Off-Broadway Date

—Saturday, January 21, 2012— It had been a long week and I needed a pick me up in more ways than one. Originally, I was supposed to take someone else on this date, but when that fell through, Dora got the call. I was three weeks into the second half of the project and it… Read more »
