Since then, she has helped several friends find their matches online.She started charging for her services almost two years ago, when strangers began asking for her help.Some New York singles have it figured out: They pay a dating-app ghostwriter to do the flirting for them. The next time a guy sends you a particularly witty opener on Coffee Meets Bagel, consider the possibility that it was written by a 41-year-old married mother of two on the Upper West Side.That would be Meredith Golden, New York City’s Tinder whisperer.One night, I sat at Cafe Brazil in Deep Ellum with a tattooed academic who had legs like chiseled stone.

In my 20s, I dismissed men for such minutiae: listening to the wrong music, wearing the wrong socks.
I got mad at a guy in college because he liked porn. But I was young, and I was righteous, and I couldn’t forgive any man for failing to be John Cusack (who probably also likes porn). For all my groaning about the city’s men, the guys I met were not the same old stereotype.
D., just moved here from Portland, don’t believe in the gender binary. You never know who is going to lunge from the bushes and throw a canvas bag over your heart.
