Ready. Set. Date!

Don’t get us wrong. The Bwog is all for modernity, progress, and the decline of awkward social customs. Sometimes, though, we do miss a bit of stifling courtship. Right now, Columbia’s dating scene has about as much life in it as the Bollinger marital bed… but the Bwog has a plan.

Every Wednesday we’re giving you FULL ACCESS to profiles of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, all of whom have undergone the Bwog’s rigorous personality and STD testing. Someone look like the guy or gal of your dreams? Email bwgossip@columbia.edu with the single’s name in the subject line, put in a sentence or two about yourself, and if our bachelor or bachelorette picks you out of the teeming hordes, the Bwog will spring $10 for a coffee date. That’s at least a Venti frap each. Possibly with a croissant to share.

Concerned? Intrigued? Vaguely aroused? Check out the two profiles below or nominate yourself or a friend for next week by emailing bwgossip@columbia.edu (by the way, straight as an arrow or bent 180°, we take all sorts).
