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.

hopefully not literally

Fainan Lakha, ladykiller

Valentine’s Day approacheth! Today’s Columbians looking for love are Fainan Lakha, Aria Sharma, and Laura Fisher. Fun fact about Fainan: when he’s not working as a daily editor for Bwog, he’s moonlighting as a sweater vest model! If you want to take any one of these awesome humans on a date, email us and we’ll set it up (and give you ten whole dollars to take ‘em out). If you don’t, we still think you deserve a shot at love. Fill out our short questionnaire and send a picture to personals@bwog.com and the face to the right could be yours.

Preference: Guy for girl

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: We meet. We talk. We stop talking.

What redeems you as a human being? I’m just really invested and enthusiastic about whatever’s in the moment… to a fault, perhaps.

Library room of choice: I love the Edward Said memorial library in Butler; it’s a cozy cove full of the best books and vibes and sometimes the annotations on those old tomes hold the lost wisdom of theorists of yore and sometimes they hold old newspaper clippings which is cool, too.

Beverage of choice: Wine (esp. spanish rioja) for the high times and scotch for  when I feel like donning a vest the quiet times.

Guilty Pleasure Song: Work Bitch. (my butler anthem)

Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? The part I always remember is drunkenly reflecting on the evening on my walk back from wherever the hell I was. Cool night air is cool, too.

Historical Hottie? Meera is who I’d say. She was a 16th Century Indian mystical poet who just basically wrote about how much she loved Krishna all the time. There’s something sexy about that much love for the feeling of… love.

Can’t get enough lovin’.
