Personals: Because Love is in the Air, Even if Spring Isn’t

Written by

The Bwog’s personal ads have been up just three weeks and already dates are underway. Full reports to come soon but so far we can promise you sweaty hands, broken hearts, caffeine jitters, and tons of gore. It’s not too late it’s never too late to play along so check out today’s ads.

If Jean or Dave looks the guy or girl of your dreams, email [email protected] with the single’s name in the subject line, and plead your case. If our bachelor or bachelorette picks you out of the teeming hordes, the Bwog will spring $5 for a coffee date. That’s two coffees at the Hungarian or five coffees and five doughnuts from the coffee cart at 114th and Broadway.

Remember that we’re always taking nominations for new singles; just email [email protected] on your or your victim’s behalf.
