Fake dating is perhaps one of the most infamous and popular rom-com tropes around. There’s something especially satisfying about watching two people make a deal to help each other out of a sticky situation, only to fall head over heels in love. Virtually Yours takes the fake dating trope into the digital dating world, to incredible effect.

The problem, Nicholson says, is that these sorts of personal reflections, along with the dating advice provided to women in popular magazines, can be reductive. They often focus narrowly on a single sort of woman, providing no alternative for other female personalities. Her anthology provides a solution by offering perspectives from women who identify with a single, particular culture: the typically male-dominated world of geekiness.
On the project’s Kickstarter page, Nicholson writes:. Yet when I get together with my friends at events or over drinks, one of our major topics is how we handle relationships and crushes, rejections, unwanted advances, and general romantic and sexual entanglements. One such nerd-centric dating topic: fictional crushes, and how we reconcile them with the realities of dating. One of the book’s essays, by YA author Adrienne Kress , addresses a tendency to transfer the same fangirl attitude applied to celebrities or constructed characters to our real-life romances.
While it’s fun and healthy to obsess over ideal-seeming caricatures like Thor or Sherlock, putting actual relationship prospects on such a pedestal can lead to the kind of fixation that undermines your own values and desires. And yet no one wins when you look at someone as infallible,” Nicholson says. Another contributor to the collection, Jen Aprahamian, penned a story titled, “Read AM,” which addresses the anxieties of impatience and anticipation that come with interacting with potential dates through texting and other relatively new modes of communication.

This Cartoonist Illustrates What Dating As A Millennial Is Like, And Honestly, She’s Not Wrong
Take it from a veteran: Online dating suuuuucks. Sure, apps like OkCupid, Tinder, and Hinge cut down on the awkwardness that comes with approaching potential love interests in person and having to discern someone’s singlehood in the first place. But putting aside the fact that even the most complex algorithm can’t always predict in-person chemistry, forcing prospective daters to boil themselves down to a self-summary leads people to not only put across an idealized version of themselves for public consumption, but also encourages people to latch onto the most surface-level aspects to quickly determine whether someone’s worth pursuing romantically.
For women especially, online dating can even be dangerous, leaving them open to harassment or worse from toxic men who feel emboldened by the anonymity of the Internet.

#DateMe An OKCupid Experiment: Comic Robyn Lynne Norris Has Only OK Dating Flings
The book, she explains in the introduction, is more of a political meditation on what Roberson insists is not a personal problem but a structural one. Honestly, I am bad at dating and all men hate me as much as I hate them they hate me for reasons that are less structural , so I have no advice to give. There are few practical suggestions for the well-meaning self-hating? Nor is there an elucidation of, say, how kissing men is oppressive.
Conveniently, Roberson believes that not proving her points can prove her point. She skips all the best parts.
