“I have dated two people long-term, and I’ve gone on a lot of dates from these,” she says. “They don’t feel stressful because you can get out of a conversation if you’re not feeling it, because you only talk to each guy for a couple of minutes. “The hardest thing is not giving up when you keep putting yourself out there, and continue going on these terrible dates,” she says.That’s why she started the On Speed Dating service, which hosts singles events that do focus on the superficial, such as “Size Matters,” for tall women like herself to meet men of equal stature.She has been haunted by guys who “ghost” her, or suddenly stop returning her texts.“What’s really common in New York is this accepted culture of disappearing on people,” she gripes. “In person, there would be no chemistry,” she says.
