Erin and Venya (but they're not a couple)

Erin and Venya (but they’re not a couple)

Still dateless as Valentine’s Day approaches? Or worse yet, in a serious relationship with Butler 209? Never fear, because Bwog’s back with Personals. Today, we introduce to you Erin and Venya, who are decidedly not a couple, but surely have much to offer the world. If you find yourself interested/intrigued/in love with either of them, shoot us an email at tips@bwog.com, and we’ll set you up! 

Name, Year, School, Major: Erin Vaughn, 2018, SEAS, Computer Science

Preference: Girl for guy

Hometown: Moorestown, NJ

Nightmare date in seven words or fewer: Nothing to talk about / just tryna hook-up

What redeems you as a human being? Hmm, well people tell me I’m really energetic. I care a lot (maybe too much) about everything I do and try to be as kind as possible to everyone in my life. And Venya says I’m a good person so there’s that.

Library room of choice: I love the alcoves on the second floor in Starr.

Beverage of choice: I don’t drink coffee, so for caffeination I usually go the Diet Snapple route. Basic, I know.

Which dating apps have you been active on? Tinder [hi boys ;)]

Where can you be found on a Saturday night? Depends on my level of procrastination, but either Butler 305, EC/McBain/wherever the party is, JJ’s with friends, or binge-watching my latest Netflix addiction in my cozy Hartley single.

Historical Hottie: Edouard Manet. Controversial, cute, artistic – my kind of guy.

Check out Venya after the jump!

No promises, but if your date goes well…

Romantic hope among optimistic young urban professionals/students is omnipresent. Last year Tinder, the year before OkCupid, before that Match.com, SeekingArrangments, ChristianMingle… Today apps like Bumble, Happn, and The League have hit the scene, promising love, but you STILL haven’t found The One.

Have no fear! Bwog is here. You don’t need to be single this Valentines Day. We’re sending out our annual Call for Personals.

All you have to do is fill out the questions below and send it to us with a pic of yourself looking smexy (or polished, whatever, just please NO NUDES) to personals@bwog.com. We’ll post a select few of the hot candidates on Bwog throughout the week before Valentine’s Day. If you fancy any of the people we post, shoot us an email and we’ll make it “happn.” We’ll even donate $10 for the date so you can go to Hungarian and not JJ’s. (This Hungarian date is okay because you didn’t meet on Tinder). We are not responsible for any Missed Connections. All personals must be submitted by February 10th. Even love has a deadline.

The Questions:

Name, Year, School, Major (grad students encouraged)
Preference (girl for girl, etc)
Hometown
Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer
What redeems you as a human being?
Library room of choice
Beverage of choice
Which dating apps have you been active on? (be honest)
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night?
