Farewell From My Very Worst Date
It’s not you it’s us. After nearly 1,000 worst dates and 26,300+ comments, we have decided to stop posting here at My Very Worst Date. When we started the site back in early 2009, it was for a laugh and to give people a place to commiserate about dating, and we never dreamed that we’d be featured everywhere from CNN and Yahoo to TIME and Jezebel. We never expected to see still be around nearly four years later.
Even with the help of Admins, who have been amazing, we just don’t have the time and energy that it takes to run this blog. It’s been a fun ride, but we don’t feel that the site has the same playfulness and lighthearted tone of the earlier years and just monitoring the comments (and trolls) is like a full-time job (except without the salary).
We know that thousands of you enjoy coming to the site and we so appreciate that MVWD was a fun place to visit for a few minutes of your day, but we have full careers and lives and other interests to pursue. We’re sorry if this breakup upsets you, but we are leaving the site up so that people can still enjoy the stories or check out the hilarious Best Of section. Our sincere thanks for reading.
Jessica & Victoria
