Erica Albright – Will I Always Be Known As Mark Zuckerberg’s Girlfriend?

Mark Zuckerberg GirlfriendI know that Mark has another girlfriend and the two of them seem very happy together. I’ve actually met her a few times when Mark and I were dating and she’s very nice. But since “The Social Network” came out, people are still asking me if him and I are going to get back together. So for once and for all, I’m going to set the record straight.

I do not want to get back together with Mark. Not that there is anything wrong with him I just don’t have much in common with him. We do talk every once in a while but we’re not Facebook friends or anything. I’m not friends on FB with him mainly because I don’t want a gazillion friends on FB. (I’m not Erica Albright on FB)

A lot of you have been writing to me and asking if I have a boyfriend. and the truth is: NO! I’m sad to say that I haven’t found prince charming yet. I admittedly am pretty picky. I definitely like a man to charm me, wine and dine me, and I like them to be kind of geeky. 🙂 But I also consider myself to be a pretty cool chick too! I’m not super high maintenance, I like to do fun things, and I just want someone to do fun things with me!

Whew! Did I just go on and on about my perfect guy?! My point is that Mark and I will never be together again and I am single!

That does bring up a good question though; I have been set up on blind dates, random dates, and been setup by friends. But the one thing that I have never tried doing is finding love through a dating site.  You know, sites like eHarmony.com and Match.com? I have heard really great things about these sites.

Leave a comment and let me know what YOU think about online dating sites! Thanks!!

    If you are looking for love, take yourself out on a date, be your own cheerleader, make yourself smile.

    The perfect person will show when the time is right.

    Online dating services are for those who haven’t invested enough time in self development, always needing to be distracted.

    Just saying…

    Erica! I just wanna start w your name as your name sounds pretty awesome. I love it. As the movie came out, obviously people do remember you as his gal. But I don’t think its good and fair(sensible neither). Re:OLD- I’d never call it a date.
    Well! I’m a guy who loves to correspond w someone like you. If you are real Erica, I’d love to correspond w you.

    I wouldn’t recommend using eharmony and / or match.com. Websites like that are too obvious and tend to attract people who don’t care so much about personality. My approach to finding the right person for me was to visit meetup groups of people who have similar interests than me. I found a website http://www.meetup.com where I could simply type in my interests and quickly find groups of people in my area who gather for these interests. It’s funny that you mention you and Mark didn’t have much in common, because meetup.com directs you to entire groups of people who share common interests with you. Of course there’s also “singles” groups on meetup.com but going to one of those most likely won’t help you meet someone to start a relationship with based on a very strong foundation. I found the best groups for me were the groups of people who had similar interests and not groups for singles. Even if you don’t find a date right away you’ll most likely make a lot of great friends who’ll introduce you to other people with the same interests as you thusly increasing your chances of finding the right person for a relationship. It’s always best to find groups of people who have similar interests but going to dating groups / websites isn’t an interest, it’s more desparation than anything else. Going to a singles group is a bit like telling people one of two things:

    1: I bave no real interests

    2: I have interests but have no clue how to find people who share my interests.

    Good luck with your search.

    First of all, sorry my English isn’t perfect. I live in Europe but I want to say this to you:

    go your own way. You are a beautiful lady. Don’t identify yourself on your ex-boyfriend. He is past, so focus on future. So I think it’s not good that you create a website, you are mainly talking about your ex-boyfriend Mark Zuckerberg or the past. You are intelligent too and I think you can make your own money…

    Greetings from Europe

    With all due respect, the tagline for the website is “I’m Erica Albright, Mark Zuckerberg’s girlfriend in the movie The Social Network.” Now I understand that you probably didn’t want to movie to ever come out and you’ve probably found “accidental fame” from it, so to speak. Although you are annoyed that you’re being constantly associated with your ex, which I can tell you I know is very tiring.. its not as if you’ve actively tried to avoid it. This website itself draws attention to that fact, over and over again. In fact, this entire blog is almost solely about Mark..

    I don’t want to lecture you on your life, but perhaps focusing on your own career without referencing to Mark might lead to people knowing you for being you and not because of him. 🙂

    Hi Erica – I just have to tell you, I finished watching The Social Network on television again – and for the record, as a girl – I have nothing but the utmost respect for you.

    Here is the bottom line – and this is coming from someone who has experienced life as I’m now in my early forties and FINALLY have found the man of my dreams. Most of us don’t really care about the money you have, or the stuff you own, or the companies you start, or the girls you can get besides us – we care about things like being treated with respect – like chivalry, and common courtesy – like taking a chance and doing things on the fly – saying nice things when it’s warranted and not always when asked. Having fun watching television and going on a walk – doesn’t have to be some exotic land somehwere. Most of us really like the simple things – not all of this crazy high maintenance spend a ton of money stuff that some women who DO like those things tend to project.

    Mark Zuckberberg started facebook – but ultimately, what will be his legacy in terms of how he treated people when he leaves here? He can’t take facebook with him – others will take it from him, but what people CAN’T take is what you leave here that defines your character; not what you have in your bank account. He created facebook to connect with people – and the odd thing is, this is what he has the hardest time doing.

    In any sense Erica, I just want you to know – I think you are fantastic and stand your ground and be picky. I wish I had been more picky. You deserve nothing less than what you feel you deserve so go out and get it. By the way, I totally by chance met my boyfriend on match.com, and he is truly the man of my dreams and treats me like a queen:) neither of us have a lot of money – but we do love each other, we laugh a lot and know what life is really about. I had a field day when he actually dropped me off in front of a place we were going to when it was raining, and he parked the car. It’s little things like that that I absolutely love:)

    Good luck with everything:)

  15. Hi just wanted to say i’m sure you will find that special someone

    You know Erica…although you go around town stating that you would not like to be known as Mark’s ex-girlfriend and you have an identity of your own…the sad part of this blog and every other thing that you are associated with today is about Mark and you are doing it yourself! I see all the comments and people are saying how Mark is a bad guy and you are great…the fact of the matter is you are making recognition for yourself out of Mark’s name and Mark is not doing that…he has created Facebook and has changed the world and you are ranting about him all the time!! If you are really somebody, why don’t you do something worthwhile yourself instead of using Mark’s name everywhere? I am sorry but he was right…you are a damn b**ch!! Mark is lucky not to have you in his life today, ‘coz you never seem to be interested in what he was doing, all you wanted were the girly stupid stuff…you could been his woman today, you lost it girl…stop using his name and do something on your own if you are really capable. All the Best. Nothing against you personally.

    Hi Erica. I think that it’s not fair the usage of your real name at The Social Network. You are a real person and you have your life. This may be called: ‘making money on your back’.
    For the relation between you and Mark, I can’t judge any of you as long as I don’t have sufficient information on both sides.

    Seriously, I think Mark did really like her from the movie I watched but he could not just connect and that’s where the problem was all the same he did really screw up but live goes on Erica

    Hallo Erica, da mein englisch grausam mein Kommentar in deutsch. Habe nun auch den Film The Social Network gesehen und wollte wissen wer Erica Albright wirklich ist. Finde es gut das du diese Seite ins Leben gerufen hast und dich nicht zu Hause vor dem Interesse versteckst. Spricht für deine Intelligenz und Offenheit, so wirst du meiner Meinung nach auch im Film dargestellt. Überhaupt zeigt der Film dich als intelligente und reife, junge Frau die die negativen Seiten in der Persönlichkeit von Mark Zuckerberg zeitig erkennt. Hat es die im Film gezeigte Szene wirklich gegeben, als Mark dich nach der Trennung anspricht und du ihm cool seine Schandtaten klar vor die Augen hältst? Zeigte erstaunlich viel Reife für eine Frau deines Alters. Respekt!!! Kannst mir gerne eine Mail schreiben.

    Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland (Nähe Dresden)
    Dennis

    PS.: Gemäß den Bildern bist tatsächlich so hübsch wie die Schauspielerin im Film. Hoffe du findest deinen Traumprinzen!

    Whats it the fuzz about who dumped whom?… Does it really must be of public knowledge, what Mark, Bill, Slim (mexican World richest), Jobs(RIP), or who ever is richer than us, do or stop of doing at their personal relationships. They played their cards as it should work for them. This blog is quite a good publicity for Erica by whom I must say she is playing ass well with the situation. Don’t get me wrong, but don’t be morbid (readers) about things like this, cos it is not important in your life. Perhaps we should be more interested on what we do to make this world better. Thats what this guys did without notice, but now we know how to do it right, by follow their example of their business not their personal failures. Sorry about this harsh words at your blog Erica, but I guess someone should say this kind of things on this public spaces for the world to change. Cheers from México City and hope these words get to everybody as a useful opinion and no to be used as idealistic bollocks.

    Hi Erica

    Unsure if you still use this website, i can honestly say – i googled your name out of random, because i just watched The Social Network.

    I wanted to understand the real Erica Albright, the one in the movie isnt the right Erica.

    Seeing the real Erica photos, made me realise you must’ve been through alot to be Zuckerberg’s girlfriend in the past and how much he insulted you.

    You have a beautiful website and also im quite sure the real you is alot better than the one casted in the movie.

    I can assure you, this isn’t a troll or a way for me to ask you out on a date, most idiots online say they want to be with you or marry you.

    I just want to write and say hi, nothing more… i understand why you created this website, if i were in your shoes – i would’ve done the same thing and write your version life.

    You don’t need to add me on FB, meet up or be friends – that’s not what this website is about.

    I wish you well and hope your future husband treats you like a princess and not a total idiot.

    – Erik

    I’ve watched TSN several times now. If MZ did say all of those funny cutting remarks that were in the film – I guess the script writers didn’t have much to do. 😉

    Dominic Nater’s comments about meetup.com are trenchant. If you want to try online dating, there are a lot of sites who’ll happily take your money – match.com is the biggest.

    eHarmony.com claims to match people based on character. I cannot say how good it is – I created a profile but never paid for it and one can’t see match’s pictures unless one pays (they match you – you don’t choose matches). It’s impossible to meet people or get personal contact info on almost all paid sites unless you’re a paid member.

    Pof.com claims to be the biggest online free dating site and is very functional even if one is only a free member. It’s very big in my area – it was started here. And OKCupid.com is also free for most things and is again very functional for free members – on both of these sites one can set up dates and get personal contact info without being a paid member. (OKCupid is big on the west coast).

    Finding a relationship one is happy with is in part a numbers game – one has to meet a lot of people to meet some that we like enough to want to date. And the more stringent one’s requirements are, the more numbers that are necessary.

    Here’s a couple of stories about two people who took a scientific approach to dating:
    How a Math Genius Hacked OkCupid to Find True Love

    Amy Webb: How I hacked online dating
    https://www.ted.com/talks/amy_webb_how_i_hacked_online_dating

    Not all of us can do that but they were interesting approaches. 😉

    This site has some good advice (at least for men) and the comments are intelligent with lots of women participating:
    http://www.doctornerdlove.com/

    Finally: I don’t know how close the movie was to portraying both you and Mark, but if it was accurate, he treated you badly. But I expect you’re over it by now. 😉

    I’ve never met him – or even seen video – but one thing that may be possible (based on the portrayal in the movie) is that he might have a nit of Asperger’s. That would be the only thing that would partially excuse his actions.
