Dating, Dining and Dashing

I hoped to close this dating column with a feel-good end, a second date. Instead, I have a more upstanding finish — complete rejection. Darlene* and I got along swimmingly, as you may have gathered from my last installment. We had a marvelous evening at Black Sheep and, though we’re from vastly ...

Dining, Dating and Dashing

Black Sheep was the place, Darlene my date. Another terrific night, made more interesting by my expanded interpretation of “dating at Middlebury”: Darlene is a townie. I met Darlene at a business downtown, where she works. She’s the kind of girl who converts new customers into returning customers, ...

Dining, Dating and Dashing

Dining, Dating and Dashing with Agnes

For my next date, I went to lunch at Otter Creek Bakery with Agnes*. My best friend, Edgar*, who plays on a varsity team with Agnes, had introduced us a couple times before. However, our interactions were always fairly brief and insubstantial, so we became acquaintances of awkward proximity — we knew ...

Dining, Dating and Dashing with Belinda

My first “first date” last week was delightful. After a long hiatus from dating on campus, I felt like a lucky boy to be out on the town with an adorable and charming lady. Finding her was a little tricky. In the absence of any casual leads, I wasn’t sure how to seek a potential date without ...

Dining, Dating, and Dashing

As a first-year I was elected into the leadership of the Student Investment Committee. As a sophomore I ran a handsome campaign for SGA President, and escaped the burden of winning by losing handily. As a junior I met the Dalai Lama and won the TEDx spot to talk about traveling. As a senior I’ve published ...
