It’s been six months since I started writing Last Girl Standing, Chicago magazine’s blog about nightlife and dating. While I consider myself somewhat of an expert – thanks to plenty of trial-by-error experience – I’d like to hear other people’s perspectives as well. That’s where you come in.

What obstacles do you face in the often-brutal world of dating? Are you hungry for more behind-the-scenes nightlife coverage? Itching for more celebrity gossip? Got a tip you’d like to share? Post in the comment field below and let me know. If you’ve got a dating dilemma you don’t want to air publicly, e-mail me directly at, and I’ll keep it anonymous, unless you give me permission otherwise.

A few questions to get the ball rolling:

  • What’s the city’s best new bar – and the worst? Do you have an undiscovered standby you think we should know about?
  • Has a relationship ever gotten in the way of your friendships, or vice versa?
  • Think there’s a hot nightlife trend I’ve missed – or one you’re ready to retire?
  • Where did you meet your current partner? Or, do you have a hard time meeting people in Chicago and need ideas for places to make connections?

This is just a sampling; I’m eager to hear from you about anything and everything nightlife and dating.

Thanks for reading,
Last Girl Standing
