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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Older Woman Date

—Tuesday, February 14, 2012— I had long wondered how Valentine’s Day would play out during OHD, and while I hadn’t expected to be going out with someone 19 years my senior, it also didn’t seem like the craziest idea in the world, given what my world had become. Lois was ahead of me getting to… 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 »

Blind Date

—Friday, January 13, 2012— It was Friday the 13th, and I was in a real bonerjam. Two out of my last three dates had cancelled on me, which meant I was two dates behind pace. I was about to wrap up the first two weeks of 2012 with only one date under my belt. I… 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 »

Dive Bar Date

—Saturday, October 1, 2011— It was about a quarter past ten at night and I am certain it was the latest I’d started a date so far. I had left my friends at a bar in Chelsea and headed down to the West Village. It only took me a few minutes to get my bearings… Read more »

Spa Date

—Wednesday, August 31, 2011— This date just didn’t want to happen. Little Miss Havana and I were becoming star-crossed lovers. We were originally supposed to go to Governors Island two weekends earlier, but as I approached her apartment that day, dressed for a 1920’s dance party, the clouds over Manhattan and the forecast of rain… Read more »
