It felt very testosterone-heavy, which I took as a good sign. Eventually, I was drunk enough to just grab someone by the arm and pull him toward me (surprisingly effective).He was a 30ish guy in a suit and thick-rimmed glasses, who reminded me of a young Elliott Gould.

For instance, this Danish poet I’ve been fucking—he’s so interesting and smart, he’s 6-foot-4, but he has these sideburns . “The general attitude used to be, ‘Online dating is for weirdos and losers,’ and now it’s, ‘Eww, who would try to hook up in a bar?

For Tinder dates I dress up, I meet the guy for a drink at like p.m., and then we have a real, uninterrupted conversation. Whereas if you meet someone out at a bar or a party, you’re with a group of people, it’s loud, and you’re probably drunk.
