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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Ice Skating Date

—Monday, December 12, 2011— Oh Winter, you beautifully cold bitch, or perhaps, you terribly handsome bastard. I don’t want to assume Winter’s gender. The week of this date, New York was experiencing one of the first decent cold streaks of the winter, so it seemed only right to get some ice skating in. I hadn’t… Read more »

Moustache Date

—Friday, December 2, 2011— I present to you, ladies and gentlemen of the internet, a moustashioed date in two parts. We begin with the prologue. A friend of mine from college, Jenna, texted two weeks before this date, in late November. When Jamie texted me the Sunday before our eventual date, asking if I’d like… Read more »

Bowling Date

—Sunday, October 23, 2011— This was the cherry on top of what had been a crazy ass weekend. My bus from Boston had pulled into town only a couple hours before the date. I ran home to Queens with just enough time to change clothes before turning right back around and returning to Manhattan. That… Read more »

Broadway Date

—Thursday, October 13, 2011— It should have been a super fun and carefree Thursday. Here was my agenda: 1. Sleep in. 2. Do some shopping. 3. Go to work. 4. Attend a Broadway premier. 5. Attend the after party of a Broadway premier. This night was Broadway Date, and it wasn’t just any show, it… Read more »
