Creating the perfect balance of sexy and fun

How to create a great online dating profile

I quickly realized that meeting people IRL just doesn’t happen in NYC (after a few weekends of only getting hit on by married men…stories for another time), so I reluctantly downloaded Bumble (girl power!) and Hinge (so the people aren’t total randos, right?)

After approximately 38,392 versions of my profile and many texts to my girlfriends (Do I look skinnier in this picture or this picture? Is this joke as funny as I want it to be?  Does this photo make me look fun or utterly ridiculous? – usually it was the latter), I finally put myself out there into the cyber dating world.

Here’s the recipe I’ve discovered for making a great profile: Continue reading “Creating the perfect balance of sexy and fun”

Don’t you wish there was Yelp for dudes?

This post was written by Lane’s BFF from high school. This blog was her idea.

Greetings!

A little about me… I am also a twenty-something but live in the sunny city of Denver, CO. I have been in Menver, as they call it, less than a year. I needed a change of scenery and Denver has exceeded my expectations. Though this isn’t a blog about moving, I would say that packing my life into a Uhaul trailer and moving across the country on a whim has given me a lot more confidence and independence.

I didn’t date around much in college; I focused more on drinking studying, but with my newfound confidence and slew of Save the Dates from friends, I have decided to dive head first into the dating world. Plus, it gives me a reason to try new places in the city while dragging the potential love of my life along.

Since a new city doesn’t offer me an abundance of friends to set me up with their cute guy friends, my dates are found using dating apps for the time being. Sure, it’s not the most romantic idea that I found a guy on Tinder, but it can make for a helluva good story.

I haven’t changed the names of the guys because IDGAF.

So, here we go…

I have a blog.

Hi everybody! Every time I tell my friends a story about a date or a new man in my life, they always tell me that I should write about, so this blog will be my adventures in dating in NYC.

I’m active on a few apps, I go on dates that friends and family set me up with and, every weekend, my work wife’s goal is to be the perfect wingwoman. I try to go on at least one date a week. Some lead to second or third dates and some just make for really funny stories. I hope you enjoy and maybe even relate, as we’re all just trying to find love in this crazy world.
