Our Favorite Nerve Features of 2012
Dear Nerve Readers,
It's been another busy year here at Nerve, and before we launch into 2013, we'd like to look back at some of our favorite Nerve stories of 2012. We're enormously grateful both to the writers and interviewers who've poured their feelings and ideas out for us with such wit and grace, and to the readers who have consistently engaged in ways that are passionate and thoughtful. Thanks to you all for a great year, and please enjoy this sampling of our favorite stuff.
• EJ Dickson wrote hilariously about her parents' hyper-awareness of her sex life.
• Nick Keppler found a relationship in a mental institution.
• Jillian Capewell was the only woman on a team of construction workers.
• Abigail Fox worked as a cam girl and fell for one of her clients.
• Jude Gibson walked us through a rough breakup in seven pop songs. (Incidentally, we also listed the greatest breakup songs of all time, for those occasions when you really need a good one.)
• Ben Cake told us what straight men could learn from getting hit on by gay men,
• Alisa Mackay shared the love secrets of a couch surfer.
• Charlie Adams' parents graded his exes.
• Eric Silvera's dad told him "Don't kiss anyone or your dick'll fall off."
• Lastly, in one of our most-commented-on pieces ever, Markham Lee broke readers' hearts with his story about an amazing girlfriend who had one terrible flaw.
