The Secret Lives of Chicago Singles

By  |  4 Comments

The best online relationships any of us found were with each other.

All different ages, backgrounds, and secrets, our common passions are Twitter and the frustrating dating scene of the Windy City. Oh, and wine. We realized we loved that, too. After a night of 10-dollar flights at Bin36 and hilarious/terrifying dating stories, we decided to do what everyone in our generation does… blog about it.

Brittany, Brandy, Laura, Nick, Chloe, Lisa, Gina. Our lives are single, Chicago… and no longer secret.



So, the question was posed – why did you want to do Secret Lives of Chicago Singles?

Lisa: “To force myself to date. Otherwise I will die alone with my cats.”
Gina: “Ditto ^.”
Brittany: “To push myself back into dating after a long-term relationship. Aaaand I love blogging.”
Nycole: “To get the opinions of other singles so I know I’m not the only one going through the horror stories of dating.”
Brandy: “I’m too drunk.”
Laura: “Me too.”
Nick: “To meet a guy who’s opening line isn’t a dick pic.”
Chloe: “Wait. This is a singles blog?”


Let's take things to the next level.

Occasional updates, no BS.

We'll never go 'Stage 5 Clinger' on your inbox, baby.

This post was written with love by the Daily Urbanista team. Have a question for us? Say hi on Twitter: @DailyUrbanista or shoot us an email:

  • I mean, cool and everything but it seems like the dating topics are probably oly going to be from a one-sided perspective since it’s all girls and a guy who seems gay (judging by the “dick pic” comment)…

    You should even the playing field a little. What the dating world is like for women is COMPLETELY different for men.


    • Lisa

      Our audience is women who want to laugh at the dating woes of other ladies, or men who want to know what’s going on in the heads of the opposite sex.

      On that note – I REALLY think you should let us sit in on one of your bootcamp sessions and let us blog about it. 😉

      • I don’t mind. The only thing is, it depends what your purpose is. I help people out, many guys who are shy, and frustrated to the point of even sometimes being emotionally in pain from loneliness. In other words, I take it very seriously.

        So if the purpose is to check it out and write about the experiences from a objective perspective I don’t mind. However if you have pre-conceived notions or you feel like taking the piss, save us both the trouble.

        Otherwise feel free to email me and I’ll find out what students are ok with having some girls along for the ride.. 🙂
