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 [email protected], 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 [email protected] 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?

You’ve seen them around campus, in your friends’ room, in your room, in your bed..? We’re speaking, of course, about your friendly neighborhood mice! Here, Bwog presents five cute li’l critters who are just looking for some love in a lonely world. Hit them up (if you dare).

Señor Pancho:

Senor Pancho enjoys long strolls on the beach and fine wines.

Senor Pancho enjoys long strolls on the beach and fine wines.

Originally my family hails from the hinterlands of Malaga, but I spent my youth on the Mediterranean coast, hopping from ship to ship with my father and forty-seven sisters on his adventurous business trips. Essentially raised by my sisters while my father brought home the cheese, I developed compassionate instincts as well as a security in my masculinity early on. In these years on the sea, an unquenchable thirst for open water was born in me that endures to this day. At the age of one, I left the Mediterranean for New York City, and that journey remains the greatest experience of my life. Today I live in a spacious and warm ventilation shaft on the top floor of Carman Hall at Columbia University, overlooking the Hudson River of course. I also maintain a modest yacht with the New York Yacht Club for weekend getaways on the water or to the Hamptons. I am looking for a companion who won’t mind my tough work schedule, who I can converse with casually en français, who loves to be out and about, and who will always want to set sail.

Dead Maus:

We didn't want to actually give you a dead mouse so there's an "x" over his eyes.

We didn’t want to actually give you a dead mouse so there’s an “x” over his eyes.

I’m not actually dead, I just like to sit in dirt and garbage. I grew up in a fancy building called McBain where there was all sorts of food lying around, but that lavish lifestyle was never for me. I prefer to roll with a different crowd; we hang out a lot in concert halls you’ve never heard of. But I’m starting to get tired of roaming the streets alone/I want a steady mwb (mouse with benefits). You: have dirty fur and maybe missing part of your tail. Be always down to party, in and out of the bed, sometimes with multiple mice.

If this sounds like your scene, hit me up. I don’t have a phone, but I like to hang outside Butler Library ’cause the smoke reminds me of a fog machine. rAve iS LyFE, PArTy 4 evEr

 

No one tickled your fancy yet? Not to worry, Ralph, Robespierre, and Theodore await

cutest damn thing I ever did see

Alexandra and Alexandra, Bwog Royalty

Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Today we have a special treat for you: behold, Alexandra and Alexandra, Bwog’s stellar former editorial team! As you’ll soon find out, this dynamic duo has a lot more in common than just their name, and they wrote each others’ personals. Here’s the fun part: we’re not telling you which Alexandra wrote which personal. You want a clue? You don’t get one. They’re both awesome; figure it out. If you want to take either Alexandra on a date, email us and we’ll set it up (and give you ten whole dollars to take ‘em out). But sorry guys, we’re just toooooo popular—we’ve received enough submissions, so we won’t be accepting any new personals.

Name, Year, School, Major: Alexandra Marie, CC, Observing You Weirdos And Writing About It

Preference: Gal for gent

Hometown: Dad’s from Bay Ridge, BK

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: Dumbass boneheaded dolt at a strip club.

What redeems you as a human being? The other Alexandra would’ve had a nervous breakdown without her. She doesn’t give or take bullshit. Also, she brings snacks.

Library room of choice: 210. Next question.

Beverage of choice: Whiskey sour. But if you don’t have sours, in her words, “just hand me whatever damn whiskey you have, no damn ice.”

Guilty pleasure song: Anything by Robyn or, more recently, Drunk in Love. Neither of which are really guilty pleasure, but I digress…

Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? Drinking wine over a home-cooked meal with her Columbia “family” before heading out to flirt with the bartender at 67 Orange.

Historical Hottie: Alexei Vronsky. Mmm, moral dilemmas.

bring on Alexandra numbah two
