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 »

Art Gallery Date

—Tuesday, June 19, 2012— It was easy for people to dismiss OHD as not being genuine, or real, for one reason or another, but really, it was all subjective. The same had been said about pieces of art, time and time again, by countless college freshmen. Not matter how you sliced it, art and dating… Read more »

Co-Worker Date

—Sunday, May 27, 2012— This was a tricky one. I worked in an office with so few single women that I may have literally had two people to choose from when initially attempting this date. I had looked to our Boston headquarters for options too, but that hadn’t panned out. The project was winding down… Read more »

Married Woman Date

—Saturday, May 19, 2012— Don’t be so closed-minded — married people needed to go on dates too. We all know that in 2012 the sanctity of traditional marriage was being destroyed by liberal hippies and their gay friends, so it wasn’t all that hard to find a married woman to go out with me. But… Read more »

Community Service Date

—Saturday, May 5, 2012— In most ways anyone could view it, this OHD project was all about me. I was the one benefitting, getting the credit, putting forth opinions and, hopefully, growing as a person. It seemed to make sense that I should at least have one date where the goal was to give back…. 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 »

Ex-Girlfriend Date

—Friday, April 13, 2012— It had been just over nine months since Alana and I had seen each other. Nine months since I stood on her stoop, returning a book I’d borrowed. Nine months since I’d apologized over and over again for having to start this project and for having to break things off with… Read more »

Video Chat Date

—Thursday, April 12, 2012— For as long as I could romantically recall, I’d always wanted what I couldn’t have and, given that she lived all the way across the United States, Jen Friel was no exception to this rule. However, it did make her a great candidate for a video chat date. I wondered if wanting… 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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Hookah Bar Date

—Wednesday, December 7, 2011— We had agreed to meet at the restaurant, Le Souk Harem, which I had read mixed things about online, but upon arrival, it seemed decently cool. Since I was a bit early, I grabbed a seat at the diminutive downstairs bar. The bartender, a young guy who couldn’t have been older… Read more »

Cocktail Date

—Friday, October 21, 2011— It had been almost eight months since I’d been in Boston, since I’d been back in my home city, and it had been even longer since I’d been in love. Sometimes you just know when you’ve been away too long. I was two beers deep and feeling sleep deprived after taking… Read more »
