This week I went out with a guy named D. He IMed me while I was online, sans messaging. It’s not the classiest move, but I went with it. Within a few IMs I found out he was a Yale alum and a 3rd year Harvard law student, home in the village for winter break. “Oh. . . . → Read More: D-Date

My 1-Week Relationship

L and I started message bonding over farming. One thing that sets me a bit apart from your typical Barnard broad is my love of the great outdoors.

Female Trouble – Uptown Lowdown Comes to Pomp!

This column is calling. Calling all girls who don’t hit the bar just to show off overexposed thighs and thong lines; calling all girls who don’t drool over the kind of guy who will kick them out before breakfast (come on, he should at least buy you chocolate-chip-hangover pancakes first) . . . and calling all . . . → Read More: Female Trouble – Uptown Lowdown Comes to Pomp!
