On March 23, 2015, Kate created a profile on Okcupid.

Some 300 opening messages later, she's been on a whopping 15 dates.

Kate likes women. This feeling does not appear to be mutual.

Clearly, she is doing something right.


ME:  "I don’t have any witty banter to spare, but I do have an extra “repartee” in the shade “Sahara Desert Dry” that I could give you. Still has the tags and everything. Let me know."

HER:  "Some dry repartee sounds absolutely refreshing! Do you have any bandinage on the side? How about a little raillery?"

ME:  "I’m afraid I’ve yet to find an American supplier for bandinage. There’s an indie manufacturer in Britain, but the wholesale import fees are a nightmare. According to my database I do have three raillery under the brand name Facetious Leg Pulling, but if you’re looking for something more generic, I’d suggest Amazon or perhaps Zonko’s (though lately their stock has been a joke)."
