Out of town and out of touch

Hey y’all! I’ll be escaping Seattle for the next few weeks, taking a much-needed proper vacation. So I won’t be checking all that many emails or texts, and I definitely won’t be taking on new clients.

Say, have you ever been on a trip? Perhaps while you were single and had active online dating profiles? Did you ever think to put in a line about how you’d be out of town and not checking messages much? If you did, I bet the people who wanted to reach out to you appreciated knowing why you weren’t writing back right away. :)

Happy fall; talk to y’all again soon!

WWDC Mug Shots

Some of you know about Mug Shots, my events to help online dating clients get better pictures for their profiles. Some of you also know that I’m kind of a tech geek even when I’m not helping people wrangle their OkCupid profiles. I’ve been toying with the idea of hosting a WWDC-timed Mug Shots event […]

My online dating photo toolkit

A briefcase with Cards Against Humanity, two iPads, several chargers, a deck of cards, a notepad and pen, and some business cards.

Snappy Hour moved to 6/25

Hey lovebirds, thanks for your patience as I recuperated! I’m doing SO much better these days, as Twitter is my witnesss: I WISH I could have taken a selfie showing y’all how many awkward items I managed to carry up the stairs without dropping/spilling anything. — Virginia Roberts (@askvirginia) June 13, 2014 Anyway, for those […]

(As you can tell from the pic below, I am NOT a fan of surprise operations and neither is Grant.) All that said, I […]
