Some part of me knew one would come eventually, but I didn’t expect it from someone who seemed so promising. Charlie was in politics. No, I’m not kidding.

I have given up on dating anyone with the name Evan. Silly as it may sound, I have now dated (past tense) two Evans in my short two months on OKCupid. I liked them both. A lot. And both turned me down. Cold. In fact, Evan 1 and Evan 2 were the most promising dudes […]
