Date My Friend: A Single Dating & Relationships Editor In New York City

Dating in any big city is tough, but when it comes down to it, New York City is definitely one of the toughest. So naturally, some of the best love stories my friend Taylor has are from the Swoon articles she reads each day as Senior Editor of Odyssey's dating and relationships vertical, which... yikes — like BIG yikes.

So as any good pal should do, I'm putting her on blast publicly (sorry, Taylor) and hoping whoever sees this might be able to help me play matchmaker and save her from all the mediocre guys she meets. Here's what you need to know:

About Taylor:

  • Age: 26
  • Height: 5'3.5" (she insisted I add the extra half inch)
  • School: Fordham University, Class of 2016
  • Job: Senior Editor of Swoon at Odyssey
  • Location: New York City
  • Hometown: Ridgefield, Connecticut

Taylor's Preferences:

  • Dogs or cats? Dogs... the only appropriate answer, obviously.
  • Night owl or morning person? 110 percent not a morning person. Don't talk to her before 9 a.m.
  • "The Bachelor" or "Keeping Up With The Kardashian"? "The Bachelor." But if there were an option to give Chris Harrison and Kris Jenner a TV show together, she'd watch that for sure...
  • Baby Yoda or Baby Groot? Baby Yoda memes every time, but she hasn't even seen "The Mandalorian," so that's upsetting.
  • Sweet or salty? Always sweet. She'll choose chocolate over everything.

Never has Taylor ever: had a cup of coffee.

Random Facts:

  • She can rap all of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass."
  • She tends to abbreviate words that don't need to be abbreviated.
  • She's always down to watch sports, but mostly just for the food and friends.

Thinking Beyond Barriers

There it is. Even though I'm not around you, I can feel it. Was there a flutter of embarrassment in your mind when you saw the word sex in this article’s title? Did you look over your shoulder to ensure nobody was around before you began to read this?

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
