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

Posted by

By Kimberly Wharton It’s a quiet Tuesday evening. I’ve surely already dated all the crazies on the site, slowly weeding them out, one date at a time. I’m hopefully optimistic, when an IM pops in.

    By Kelly Seal I got suckered into another Match.com subscription, falling for the good-looking guys I’d seen in the promotional email. But once I joined I didn’t hear from them. Instead, the balding late-forties divorcees were responding to my ad, with emails like: “I like ur pix. Wanna chat?” I guess it was too much […]

    By JocelynWentland, Sex Researcher A few years ago, my boyfriend surprised me with an afternoon date of horseback riding.

I’m no equestrian master (mistress?) or anything, but […]
