If you fancy any of the people we post, send us an email and we’ll hook you guys up. We’ll even throw you $10 for the date so you can get Cinnastix with your Domino’s pizza order. We are not responsible for any bad dates. All personals should be submitted by February 10th.

The Questionnaire:

  • Name, Year, School, Major
  • Preference (guy for guy, etc)
  • Hometown
  • Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer
  • What redeems you as a human being?
  • Library room of choice

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.

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.

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.

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.

Name, Year, School, Major: Fainan Lakha, CC ’17, Philosophy or Middle East, South Asia, and Africana Studies…and yeah, I write for bwog.

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’.
