“On the first date it’s like ‘oh wow, so much energy.'” By the fourth date it’s like ‘listen, this is my trauma…'”

what are you writing you’re like setting
00:03
me Wow
00:12
hi I’m Lane Moore I have a new book out
00:15
called how to be alone if you want to
00:16
and even if you don’t I am the creator
00:18
of comedy show tinder live and I am in
00:20
the band it was bromance I do all of the
00:22
things so I wrote the book how to be
00:23
alone because I’ve been alone most of my
00:26
life I didn’t really have the ideal
00:28
family and I think that that’s true for
00:30
so many people but especially queer
00:31
people I think that so many of us had
00:33
rough childhoods even if you had a
00:34
really really wonderful family
00:36
adolescence was tough and childhood was
00:38
tough and trying to find a way to
00:40
connect and so not really having that
00:42
kind of foundation that we’re all
00:44
supposed to have has really impacted me
00:46
in a big way in terms of how I’m able to
00:47
connect and date and all these things
00:49
and so I wanted to share my experience
00:51
of that for everybody else who feels
00:53
lonely all the time even though they
00:55
feel like they’re surrounded by people
00:56
so I was the sex and relationships
00:58
editor at cosmopolitan where I made it
01:01
super super queer it should be noted
01:03
I’ve been doing tender life for a really
01:04
long time I’ve written about
01:05
relationships and things of that for
01:07
glamour and self and GQ and Playboy and
01:10
all of the things and I’m also super
01:12
single so pretty qualified I’m looking
01:15
at everybody’s tinder and Grindr
01:17
profiles and and wasn’t them to see if
01:19
that could be improved as most profiles
01:21
game sometimes I’m looking for dates
01:23
sometimes I’m looking for like I don’t
01:25
know an alpha assertive top but depends
01:29
on the day I’m not really sure what I’m
01:32
looking for
01:33
I’m also obtaining someone and it’s kind
01:37
of like an open thing at the moment so
01:39
that’s the thing I don’t have a specific
01:41
thing I’m looking for I think I’m open
01:43
to anything I’m not getting anything out
01:45
of tinder like I’ve been on maybe like
01:47
two tinder dates in my life because I
01:49
feel like people just we talk and then
01:51
nothing happens I love your t-shirt he
01:53
has a shirt that says why do you racist
01:55
sexist homophobic or transphobic when
01:56
you could just be quiet and then he’s
01:57
wrapped in what looks like the backdrop
02:00
behind him ya know it’s like I want it
02:04
to be very like Virgin Mary like that’s
02:07
kind of what I want to exude yeah it
02:09

02:12

03:32
depressed that this profile goes on oh

03:43
general right yeah you’re just like oh
03:45
are we so fun so at five do you feel
03:47
like this profile is working for you in
03:49
the way you want to UM it’s working all
03:52
right yeah like maybe sometimes I prefer
03:54
dates to random hookups and maybe I’m
03:57
not articulating that the right way but
03:58
then also random hookups are fun
04:00
sometimes Cheers it literally says say
04:02
hi that is the most boring thing ever
04:04
okay that’s how much I didn’t even
04:06
notice that was vaio admittedly I can
04:08
say you just aren’t there it’s boring
04:10
journalist I got a cute face trouble you
04:12
a snake legs oh my god we’re already
04:14
rhyming I love it
04:15
it’s taking legs in shape rum shake in
04:17
both ways make you do a double take
04:18
Aires if it gets to that even again so
04:21
that I like you yeah it’s Missy Elliott
04:24
lyrics and then I feel like if people
04:25
know that it’s Missy Elliott lyrics
04:26
that’s already like a something to talk
04:29
about nice – I know she’s got frosting
04:31
on my pants yeah I like it
04:33
swipe right oh honey
04:34
I would mention the open relationship
04:36
thing and I say that because it’s like
04:38
people who might not be looking for that
04:40
it’s like then you’re wasting your time
04:41
you know what I mean it’s like it’s look
04:43
cuz I know that’s like that can be a
04:45
tricky thing people and it’s like you
04:47
don’t have time for that shit you want
04:48
someone who’s just like yeah yeah great
04:50
also you seem like an interesting cool
04:53
kind person so I feel like there’s more
04:55
that you could say maybe like some sort
04:58
of okay it’s really long it’s so long
05:05
what do you want to attract so if you
05:09
have anything I don’t have like one
05:11
thing I’m necessarily looking for on
05:13
dating apps I think I’m open to all
05:14
types of connections whether it’s a date
05:17
or just a funny chat with someone or
05:21
hook up with someone q like I’m kind of
05:24
just open-minded to anything that could
05:25
come from it so I don’t specify because
05:28
I don’t know I’m okay what are you
05:31
writing I know it’s scary but I think
05:33
it’s okay to just say like I’m actually
05:35
looking for a relationship and you can
05:36
do it in like a fun funny way that feels
05:38
right for you to use your own words that
05:39
I will say the thing about your profile
05:41
is it is like very silly and playful but
05:43
that could read it like I just want to
05:44
fuck well I love fucking well that’s
05:47
okay but you don’t like if you want
05:48
something right more than that then it’s
05:50
I think it’s really good to put that I
05:52
want something more than that because a
05:53
person who is like should I do – they
05:56
might not know that about you whenever I
05:57
see dates flaws or like dates or more I
05:59
think that if someone who likes doesn’t
06:01
really care about the date it’s like
06:02
open to going on dates you even want to
06:03
go on dates so maybe that’s something to
06:06
be edited dates preferred is about yeah
06:11
I’m gonna write in all caps I love what
06:16
I wrote Oh God so I left the Dyke boy
06:18
thing there cuz I get why that’s
06:19
important and then I said and yes I am
06:21
the real George Michael in an open
06:23
relationship and looking for someone who
06:24
loves George Michael again I am very
06:26
cool it’s true say hi to my body which
06:30
looks like a face see my nipples are
06:31
eyes my bellybutton is a mouth what’s up
06:33
girl
06:36
let’s see what’s in the room thank you
06:40
a bit of a right in parentheses I also
06:44
love sex Oh honestly I’ve created a
06:48
master be in love I feel like I’ve done
06:50
it oh wait let’s add something up I’m
06:53
also gonna write bonus points spot the
06:56
candle they’re gonna be like there’s no
07:03
candle I’m gonna be like there is and
07:05
then now you’ve omitted your argument
07:07
you gave them a little fun challenge
07:09
that’s just like enough this is enough
07:11
of like this guy’s like a fun weirdo
07:13
what I liked about doing it this way is
07:16
that it’s saying open relationship and
07:18
immediately making a joke
07:19
so it’s like it’s not something it’s not
07:20
you know what I mean cause like
07:21
sometimes that can have this weight to
07:23
it I think I think that’s what you saw
07:25
another profile you’re always like I
07:27
think that’s you know clearly your
07:29
energy is very exuberant
07:30
I know people tell me I’m so exciting
07:33
and fun exactly and this profile
07:36
indicates the high octane level of vibe
07:39
that you bring to your everyday life I
07:42
think that’s really fun
07:43
plus you look like a gay nineties
07:44
cartoon you’re like jiving me I feel
07:46
like most people don’t overall yeah my
07:49
thoughts by your profile no I fix it
07:51
perfect
07:52
I think it’s a lot better I’m excited
07:54
it’s less clear profile
07:55
oh my goodness oh my god no no well you
07:59
know I’m a great grubber I have been
08:01
since high school so I really wanted to
08:03

08:11
opportunity for an acceptance speech I
08:13
