This Blind Date From Hell Has The Internet Screaming


Online dating has changed the game forever.  It took a crazy thing in dating to begin with, and just added so many different layers to beware of and now we seem to be in an endless abyss. 

Everybody in New York City knows that the best part of getting Time Out New York handed to you while you're getting on the subway is getting to read the "Undateables" section, in which two New Yorkers are thrown together on a blind date at some hip restaurant. Often, it unfolds as a mini reality show, featuring the kind of bitchiness New Yorkers have mastered. And in this week's issue, the column might have reached its apex, with the lopsided duo of Alyssa and Billy.

Let's talk about Billy.

There's a lot to unpack there. This 24-year-old lives on the Upper East Side, gets mad when a women is five minutes late to a date, and apparently thinks a good conversation is someone complimenting him "many times." (Full disclosure: I used to freelance regularly for Time Out and on one occasion I organized a series of blind dates for the magazine for a similar feature.)

The internet couldn't get enough of this guy.
