Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder?

Or, in my Co-Dependent Case…

Completely Paranoid And Worried That You Don’t Love Me Anymore!!!

I mean, seriously:

“Robyn! Where have you been? You disappeared for TWO Weeks!”

I’m so sorry!

If someone did that to me (And they HAVE. Multiple times.) …

I would think something fishy was up. (And it WAS. Every time.)

But, I SWEAR this is a different scenario.

And I don’t want to do that to you!

I Know I Haven’t Been Around As Much As I Used To.

I like to be here for you EVERY WEEK.

But there is some Exciting Stuff Cooking for the Future of #DateMe. And I have to focus on that as we wind down the last weeks of our Chicago run.

Don’t worry. Our cast will still be performing in #DateMe at Up Comedy Club through August 19th.

And I will still be featuring YOU, our audience. It just might not be EVERY week.

Please stay tuned for exciting developments about the future of the show. I can’t say anything yet. But, when it happens, it will be exciting!

So, don’t think of it as me abandoning you.

Think of it as me planning an Extended Amazing Surprise Party that I just can’t tell you about yet.

Deal? Deal.

Share The Love

As I said in my last post, #DateMe has been showered with so much love the past several years.

And it’s time to give some of that love back in a weekly feature.

Meet Bryce & Richard

Instagram Influencers Bryce and Richard came to the show.

I mean, SERIOUSLY. Could they be more ADORABLE!

Follow them both on Instagram. You will not be disappointed!

And they were kind enough to bring some friends and give us this shoutout.

6 Things You Can’t Live Without

One of the questions OkCupid asks their users is:

“What Are The 6 Things You Can’t Live Without?”

We recite several of these answers from user profiles Verbatim in #DateMe.

But then we want to hear from YOU.

We asked. You Tweeted.

Here Are This Week’s Favorites:

Either way I love it.

I REALLY Want Number 1 To Be Referring To Me.

“Could this be about me?!?!”

But Pretty Sure Ben Means Swedish Singer & Songwriter Robyn…


…who, incidentally, was born “Robin” but changed to “Robyn” with a “Y” because that’s the CORRECT way to spell it.

I Love When People Include Pics With Their 6 Things:

And What Is Up With This Girl?

Why Can’t She Live Without Abe Lincoln?!?!

And why is she wearing his hat?

This is cracking me and also making me SO confused.

I guess we’ll never know.
