Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Tree Hugging Boyfriend

By Brianne Sloan

FRIENDS! ROMANS!! COUNTRYMEN!!! (and all you crazy, madcap cyberspace sports fans!) Lend me your ears! I’ve got some serious bitching to do . . .

About a week and a half ago, I started dating this abnormally beautiful man. I mean, this kid was a straight-up hunk, the kind of guy you never meet in real life, only in soap operas and in some very early James Bond flicks. When I met him at a neighborhood bar a few weeks ago, he was sitting alone and holding a beer with a hand that had no ring, quite naturally I assumed there had to be something terribly, terribly wrong with him.

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Another Year, Another Dating Profile

By JocelynWentland, Sex Researcher

So with the advent of another year, how many people have un-retired their online mouse and returned to online dating or are making the big dive into online dating for the first time? I’m no mathemagician, but I’m sure many sites like Plenty of Fish or Lavalife see a new year’s spike each year. Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Dating in NYC: WTF?

By Cougel

I’ve had this conversation a lot lately, so I thought I’d commit it to paper (er, the web).

What is wrong with the dating scene in New York? Is it me, or is true that (I quote friends),“Men in NY are retarded, or at best, weird?”  I know men complain about the same thing in regards to women, and I’m convinced there is truth to that too. Is it the climate of this city, or is it the kinds of people it attracts? Do we all share a common restlessness or fantasy that something “better” is just around the corner, preventing us from committing to one person? Or does it have nothing to do with us. Is there just something in the tap water? (Maybe I should be ordering sparkling.) Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Online Liars

By Kelly Seal

Like most online dates, I started this one with a mixture of excitement and dread. My success rate with dating websites was terrible, to say the least. I’d been out with alcoholics, egomaniacs, players, and even the occasional “life transition” candidate, which is another way of saying he wasn’t divorced yet, but wanted to see what his options were. Lucky me.

And still, after so many dates that went nowhere (many bad, most boring), I could always muster a little bit of hope for each new prospect. Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — The Courage to Continue


Last night I broke up with Benefit of the Doubt. It was ugly. We’ve been together for so long, it’s just so hard to let go. I mean we have so many memories together–like that time I found those girls’ numbers in his phone, and the time he forgot his credit card at dinner… and that time that he couldn’t come to my cousin’s wedding due to elbow pain.

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Culture Crash

By Tiffany Moore

When I used to live in New York we used to call corny guys “Square Bears”. I am sure the term “square” is still used everywhere and holds true to the same meaning. I have been through my phases just like everyone else. I am no stranger to the ex-con, the dope boy, the silver fox, the Abercrombie kid, and the square bear. I do not discriminate. Here’s a story about when a circle meets a square. Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — The Interrogation

By Tiffany Moore

This was not the 1st time I went out with Markus. Our first date was mini-golf and it was so cute. I had a lot of fun. We had a nice hug at the end, we did not kiss and he had manners. His momma taught him well. I was highly anticipating our next date. We planned to go bowling, very typical. I am a good bowler and a lil bit competitive so it’s always fun. Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — The One-Up Man

By Tiffany Moore

I don’t know if this should even be filed under a hell date because there’s a lot of people I know that fit into this same category. He is what I like to call the “One up Man” or for you fellas the “One up Woman” its all the same shit. Somebody, no matter what you have done or what you know they always have to have one leg up on you. Oh do you need an example well here ya go…

I love confidence in a man. (see Tiff’s top 10 men edition) He who walks with swag will bag. He commands the attention in a room and the girls will flock. There is that fine line between confidence and cockiness. Between animated and obnoxious. I am not a hoe but I have been out with more than a handful of people. My experiences whether good or bad help me define what I like and don’t like in man. Now initially I am attracted to them in the physical sense just like everyone else. It is the first thing you see, its what draws you in before the conversation and personality unfolding.

I went out on a date with this guy named Nate. Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Last Dating Hope Girl

By Mark Miller

I was a woman’s last Online dating hope…

Some men distinguish themselves by being great scientists, statesmen, artists.  I was a woman’s last online dating hope.  I did not choose or go after this “honor” – it was bestowed upon me by Kathy, whom I met on an online dating site.  Kathy informed me that her experiences meeting online dates in person had been so horrible, so traumatic, so soul-draining, that she decided to give the process just one more chance.  She’d decided to meet one more guy before removing herself from online dating for all eternity – and I happened to be the guy; the last guy she was going to meet; her final chance for online romance.

Of all the online dating sites, in all the towns, in all the world, she logs on to mine.  After hanging up the phone, I found myself experiencing a range of emotions not unlike the Seven Stages of Grief.  First, there was Cockiness – those other guys may have disappointed her, but I’ll make up for them.  Then, Doubt – what if I don’t measure up?  Next, Resentment – what right does she have to place that “Last Man” burden upon me?  Then, Guilt – if I turn out to be her final disappointment, it could push her over the edge; she could end up doing something drastic like taking her own life – or even worse, mine!  Finally, Acceptance – ah, what am I worried about?  Click here to read more…

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Insult Guy

By Kimberly Wharton

Yesterday morning I awake in anticipation of a new day! With a cup of coffee in hand, I’m ready to face the website of choice and see what awaits. What I discovered was an e-mail from a man we’ll call GGMan3.

…yeah, I just pulled a Taylor Swift. …that was his real screen name. The e-mail went something like this, “Kimberly, Your profile is horrible and unimaginative. It shows a definite lack of romanticism and creativity, not to mention cynical of others. I would never date a girl like you.” Click here to read more…
