Ask Me Anything!


“Why are you so weird?”

It has recently come to my attention that I am a terrible blogger, lacking the selfies, tweets, and other ADD-inducing micro-content that makes the World Wide Web the colorful place that it is. While you will have to wait for an OOTD post (probably, forever), I will indulge in some narcissism by creating a little bulletin board in which you guys can post any question you would like answered!

While I doubt that I am that much of an enigma, perhaps there is something about this walking disaster of a human that piques your curiosity? Or, perhaps, you would simply like me to dispatch some terrible dating advice? If so,  write your question in the comments section and I will answer directly!

You can also email me at and I might make a nice anonymous post out of it!

And remember, there are no stupid questions, but only truly idiosyncratic answers, which you are most definitely guaranteed!


  • I think one of the best parts of this blog and what keeps me coming back is that it *isn’t* a self promotional stream of tweets, selfies, IG links that other (dating) blogs have. Keep it up!

    But if you want some random questions, here goes:

    * Would you / will you ever move back to NYC?
    * Do you think tinder has overall helped or hurt dating?

    • First of all, THANK YOU, both for being a loyal reader and appreciating my lack of selfie galleries! Although I do wish I was better at shameless self-promotion and all that other revenue-driving jazz.. But, alas, I am crap at it.


      * Would you / will you ever move back to NYC?
      Yes. In fact, I think about it constantly, particularly while being reprimanded by a snooty French waiter for my mere existence. I am definitely getting to a point where I am way too bored / comfortable in Paris, but at the same time I happen to love the European lifestyle and the traveling opportunities it allows me. That said, ideally I would like to establish some sort of scenario where I am back and forth between Paris and NYC. (Or maybe throw a new – warm – city in the mix? LA?)

      * Do you think tinder has overall helped or hurt dating?
      I was recently talking about this with two friends, a couple (interview coming up soon!) and they were saying that Tinder has taken the spontaneity and glamour out of dating, turning it into “product testing”. I used to be the first person to argue the defense, claiming that Tinder reduces the time and energy that it takes to go to a bar to scope people out, connects different social circles, and is super helpful in a city like Paris, where men don’t approach women. And yet, despite all of this, I have never once seen it work out in the long run, neither for myself, nor for any of my friends. Something about Tinder may have made people a little too superfluous, a little too much of a commodity, a little too easy to just replace with a swift swipe right. And that is just wrong.
