OkStupid: Live Readings of the Best Worst Online Dating Conversations
To celebrate Valentine's Day we are having a live reading of the best worst online dating conversations we can dig up.
Most people who have ventured to the internet to find love have experienced the absurdity that can be online dating. The anonymity of the internet gives some suitors the confidence to be inappropriate in ways that only the most socially inept would attempt in person, and the resulting conversations are so appalling they're hilarious. On February 11th you are invited to Handlebar to perform your best worst conversations. If we're going to be subjected to the worst of humanity we may as well have some fun with it!
We'll have a couple of actors on hand to step in and play the parts of the antagonists (for lack of a better word). Please bring two copies of your awful conversations.
This is not limited to OkCupid. We welcome terrible conversations from Plenty of Fish, Grindr, Tinder, Scruff, Christian Mingle, JDate, and any other technology-based love-finding platform.
This is a PWYC event with proceeds going to a local domestic abuse charity (TBA).
