DBAG DATING – A series of diligently curated dating disasters, brought to you from both sides of the Atlantic.
Like all good things (real croissants, Céline cashmere), it all started in Paris. I had just finished my Master’s Degree and was coasting along my second year of expat life, excited to embark upon the mission of dating in the City of Love. I envisioned long Seine walks, picturesque Normandy weekends, and languid coffees sipped on Haussmanian balconies. Instead, all I got was a sequence of dirty armpits, frozen carrots, and French hipsters yelling at me for refusing to consummate our brewing connection on the sheet-less mattresses of their 20-meter apartments. It appeared that my (already questionable) dating skills had failed me on new turf, resulting in a series of utterly bizarre incidents that would leave my friends speechless, somewhere on the cusp between pity and mortification. One day, I wrote them down, and Dbag Dating was born.
Today, Dbag Dating is a New York–based chronicle of diligently curated dating disasters, brought to you from both sides of the Atlantic. It is a comparative analysis of the global dating scene that traverses country borders, with the occasional feel-good happy ending for inspirational purposes.
Dbag Dating is an invitation to live out your crazy dating experience, laugh at it, and to keep on going. Because the next one is right around the corner.
