I get asked out when I wear this outfit

By Kristen Nichols

As a single person in the world of Bumble, Raya, and countless other dating apps, it has been interesting observing just how quickly they have changed the dating scene. People are much less likely to ask me out in person like they used to—even just in the span of the few short years since these apps have been around. One theory I have is because it’s easier to face rejection from the comfort of your own living room. If someone swipes left on you or doesn’t reply to a message, it’s doesn’t have the same effect as getting turned down in person. And it’s interesting because now I’m actually stunned (though pleasantly surprised) when someone has the courage to strike up a conversation and ask me out in person.

Recently, though, I was asked out on a couple of dates—in person. Once on a Sunday afternoon trip to the farmers market and the next while standing in line for a salad at Sweetgreen. What surprised me in both cases, aside from the rarity of said scenario, was that I happened to be wearing the same thing both times. In each scenario, I was wearing a slip-skirt outfit—specifically involving a leopard-print style that has quickly become my summer staple.

  1. I adore anything leopard print; scarf, dress, blouse - even panties! I can understand why you get asked out, and I would love to own this skirt. (not to get asked out, but that WOULD be a pleasant added bonus)

    I almost 'lost my lunch' with the pic of Rudy,Rudy, Rudy, and tRump.

    Hi Stana, I understand it's your blog and you can include whatever you wish. I've got to say, however, I believe you erred including the pic of Rudy and Voldemort. Perhaps you included them to be inclusive and to please readers who are fans of theirs. So be it. Yes, technically, Isuppose Rudy was "femulating."

    However, these individuals have proven to be against the interests of the genuine transgender community.

    To the degree this blog exists in some degree to stand for dignity of the transgender community, the inclusion of this picture, in my opinion, undermines that.
