1. Michael, 22

3/5 stars

Time after which you feel drunk enough to give him your number: 2:35am.
Beard: Yes.
Are you into the beard?: No.
Flannel: Yes.
Drink: IPA.
Likelihood of finding him smoking a cigarette outside when the bar closes: Really high.
First guess at his overall personality from this one conversation: One Of Those Guys Who Hasn’t Been Told He’s Not Funny.

2. Seth, 24

4/5 stars

Hours you’re willing to spend talking to him: Until closing time.
Haircut: Perfect.
Sense of humor: Self-deprecating.
Political Correctness: He didn’t ask “No, but like, where are you really from?” after you said you grew up in the midwest.
Why he has 4 stars: He looks like he brought weed with him.
Why he doesn’t have 5 stars: His friends are idiots.
Drink: Gin and tonic (but he doesn’t drink it out of the straw).

3. Aaron and Nick, look underaged, but probably 20-somethings

1/5 stars each, 2/5 stars total

Hours spent listening to them talk about themselves: 3—not including time spent during your multiple fake bathroom trips.
Are Nick’s glasses real?: No.
Do they both check out other girls while talking to you?: Yup.
Drink: Bottled Bud Light.
Why are they rated together?: Aaron and Nick are inseparable wingmen bros to each other—so when you meet them, their introduction sounds like one long name: “Hi, we’re AaronandNick.”

4. Wesley, 23

2.5/5 stars

First thing you noticed about him: It was 10pm and he had already sweat through his Brooks Brothers Non-Iron Madison Fit Windowpane Dress Shirt.
How did you know the specific name of his shirt?: He told you immediately.
Drink: Tequila shots, abandoned beers left on the bar.
Conversation topics: Private equity, the last time he was crossfaded, why you should smile more.
Why he doesn’t have 0/5 stars: He put four of his business cards in the fishbowl to win a free happy hour and promised you were invited if he won.

5. Jason, mid-40s

3.5 stars

Do you think he’s aware he was in high school when you were born?: Mmh, for sure.
Drink: Whiskey (but he cringes slightly every time he takes a sip).
His go-to pick up line: Something about how you seem like an old soul.
Interests: Rock climbing, reading books about Teddy Roosevelt. End of list.
Positives: Tipped the bartender really well.

6. Luke, early-30s.

3/5 stars

Profession: Wants to do something creative, is currently doing something not creative.
Does he have his own car?: Yes.
Fatal flaw: He’s still using a cracked iPhone 4.
Questionable outfit decision: Wearing his sunglasses on the top of his head despite being inside a dark bar.
Drink: Whatever you’re drinking. TC mark

Instagram Poet’s “3-Step Book” To Conquer Trauma

Depression is real. Anxiety is real. PTSD is real. ALL mental illnesses are real. Don’t believe anyone who is trying to tell you otherwise.

Every time I’m stressed I distract myself with doing something nice for someone else and it’s the best thing on this planet to watch someone’s eyes light up because they weren’t expecting something nice to happen.
