Sex, Lies, and Pictures of Sick Cats. (Part 1)


It was 2008, I was six months out of my first serious relationship, and the closest thing to “dating” I was doing was two coffee gatherings with a writer (shocking) 14 years my senior, who never called again but did send me adorable slash mildly exploitative photos of his hospitalized cat (see: image). On top of this, word on the street (ie: facebook) was my ex was dating someone seriously, and I thought: well these times, they are getting pretty desperate.

When desperate dating times call for dating desperate measures, that desperate measure usually involves a computer, a supportive friend, and several hours scrolling your facebook profile pics. And this is exactly how it went. I thought I’d wade through, rather than throw myself, into on-line dating, so I started with a free site first: nerve.com. But I quickly realized that, though finding a date from a Web site containing articles like “True Stories: Sex Ed; I Slept with my Mother’s Best Friend…Who was Also my Fourth Grade Teacher,” might earn me some material, it certainly was not going to guide me towards my partner for life.

My mother, after listening to my complaints about the situation, suggested I switch my strategy.

“Why don’t you try that Jew date?” she responded.

“I’m sorry?”

My Relationships are Nations You Want to Leave

Screen shot 2011-09-23 at 12.09.29 AM

“Keep on truckin’!”  I say, in a telephone conversation where my friend has asked me how I felt about a boy I had broken up with, who was neither a friends with benefits or a real relationship.

After I say it out loud, this expression makes me think of being a trucker, which I’m not sure how I feel about.  But, my friend reminds me:

“That is what you are, truck driving on the road of dating.  And the states are like different people.  What state was this guy?” Referring to the boy I had just broken up with.

I thought. “Milwaukee.”


Jermaine Fowler Breaks It Down For Us.



Jermaine Fowler of MTV2’s Guy Code  introduces us to an array of characters, including a girl who is into peeing in the shower, a guy with a dream and a spelling problem, and a couple who likes to bone in the hallway. That’s right. In the hallway.

This will be the funniest video you see all week. Cross our hearts.
