  79. I decided, right then, that I needed to do something to alter the course of our conversation. For all they knew, I could be an 80-year-old man or a group of thirteen-year-old girls or a really smart gorilla.

  81. It would have made a great romcom. This year 12 new laureates have been awarded for achievements that have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind. They had no idea who I was.

  85. Like most brilliant ideas, it began as a joke. A friend and I were at lunch, discussing our frustrations with online dating, when I suddenly realized the ridiculousness of our conversation. Here we were, two modern, educated women, and we had spent nearly two hours talking about our romantic relationships! I wanted to be Gloria Steinem. I wanted to be Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I decided, right then, that I needed to do something to alter the course of our conversation. Emily Dickinson, for example. She was a virgin, unmarried, and a recluse, but, man, was she talented. I wondered aloud to my friend began to wonder: How would Ms. Dickinson fare in the world of online dating? Would a lovelorn poet, obsessed with death and privacy, be able to woo a modern man? We laughed, and then went on discussing our own dating disasters. I kept wondering, if I created a profile for Emily, how would people respond to her? Would she get emails? Would people get the joke? It would be an interesting art project, if nothing else. Eventually, one quiet Saturday night, led by a genuine curiosity and my own frustrations with dating, I did it. I brought Emily Dickinson into the 21st century. Would a lovelorn poet, obsessed with death and privacy, be able to woo a modern man? Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food Movies: What is a movie? Books: Wordsworth, Browning, Keats, Emerson, Shakespeare i. Thank you for asking. Food: Baked goods, especially my famous gingerbread. Instead, I stand at the window and lower it down to them in a basket. The six things I could never do without white dresses, gardening, graveyards, writing letters to older men, talking smack about my parents, pain I spend a lot of time thinking about Death, death, and more death. On a typical Friday night I am I am in my bedroom, alone. As soon as the profile went up, I was bombarded by emails. When can we go zombie hunting? Well, technically, Jane Austen was the zombie killer, not Dickinson, but close enough. Me: More like 1850. Him: So how is that u in the photo? I think I blew his mind. Every woman who has participated in online dating knows them. Did these men think the 19th-century photographs of Emily Dickinson I had posted were images of an actual living, breathing woman? Did they think I was an historical reenactor? Or were they just so desperate for sex or companionship that they emailed every profile they came across? Why was Emily Dickinson succeeding at online dating to a much higher degree than I ever had? Well, she was famous, for one thing, and dead for another. So, other than being an Dickinson impersonator what else are you interested in? They had no idea who I was. For all they knew, I could be an 80-year-old man or a group of thirteen-year-old girls or a really smart gorilla. Yet still they wanted to meet me; they wanted to know me. Several men gave me their phone numbers, even though they had never seen a photo of the real me. They did see photos of Emily Dickinson, though. My profile contained two photographs of Dickinson, the only two in existence, although only one has been authenticated. In both, she is unassuming and well-covered. Her OkCupid pictures did not include images of her cavorting on beaches. There were no boob-squeezing selfies or come-hither stares. So why was she getting so much attention? Online dating is a make-believe world. People are drawn in by that image, and then they create their own fantasy on top of that. An online dating site is really nothing more than layers upon layers of ego and insecurity. Essentially, nothing is real. In the guise of Emily Dickinson, I was hip. I could quote poetry on demand. But my real OkCupid profile projected that image as well. So why was Emily Dickinson succeeding at online dating to a much higher degree than I ever had? Well, she was famous, for one thing, and dead for another. Maybe that was it. Men do tend to fetishize famous dead women, especially if the woman in question has a head full of neuroses. Marilyn Monroe, Francesca Woodman, Sylvia Plath. If most modern men met these women in real life, they would call them crazy, but somehow, in the safety of death, they become worthy. Maybe this was a step beyond that: a fantasy about an interesting, talented, dead woman with a penchant for morbidity. Unfortunately, not everyone was in love with Emily. People kept reporting me for falsely representing myself, as if I were actually trying to pull a fast one on the entire male population. A user would issue a complaint and then OkCupid would delete my images. I kept reposting the images anyway, and people kept reporting me. This process happened over and over again. Eventually, I got tired of this merry-go-round and added a disclaimer to my profile: This is clearly a joke. I am not actually Emily Dickinson. She was, in fact, an unlikely star in the online dating scene. Once I left the house for an hour and came home to find seventeen messages in my inbox. I could barely keep up. I wanted to respond, at least once, to every message I received, but it quickly became a full-time job. So, after two days of playing Emily Dickinson, I decided to cancel the account. Which would make my Emily Dickinson impression all the more authentic. Of course, with all that interest, I might have actually met someone, if I had stuck with it. It would have made a great romcom. It would have made a great romcom. Early on, a guy asked for my real-world profile and I sent it to him. He thanked me, but then I never heard from him again. I messaged him, revealing my true identity.
