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 »

Performance Art Date

—Friday, May 18, 2012— As soon as we first went out, on Bowling Date, I knew that I needed to go out with Pearl again. I was upset, however, that I had let so much time pass before asking her again. In the whirlwind of my OHD year, Fall had turned to Winter and Winter… Read more »

Sister Date

—Friday, May 11, 2012— Sister Date was one date that people often had questions about. Wasn’t that incestuous? Totally gross?? Morally incomprehensible??? Well you can calm down…because I don’t even have a sister. I had to date someone else’s sister for this one. The original idea was that I had to go out with the… Read more »

Notable Individual Giving A Talk Date

—Thursday, May 3, 2012— I couldn’t believe that for a date activity as mundane as a notable individual giving a talk, I had found such a seemingly exciting woman who was willing to tag along. Unfortunately, this date didn’t go according to plan and I nearly had to call the whole thing off. Radha had… 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 »

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 »

Scavenger Hunt Date

—Sunday, March 18, 2012— I love a good scavenger hunt. They’re filled with surprises, you have to piece together clues and at the end of it, you usually hope to win a prize. I love the competitive aspect of it too. This scavenger hunt was unlike any I had ever been on because the prize… Read more »

Double Date

—Tuesday, March 6, 2012— Double your pleasure, double your fun, right? The logic seemed sound enough. When Morgan and I had gone first gone out, back in October of 2011, we talked about our friends Bradley and Georgia. They seemed like they might be a decent fit for each other, but it took me forever… 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 »

Comic Con Date

—Saturday, October 15, 2011— Here’s what I love about my favorite comic books: They allow me to engage with something fantastic while still making me feel like they are possible in real life. If only I were bitten by the right spider; if only they would invent a flying suit of armor; if only an… Read more »
