... the mere word invokes an involuntary shutter. An adolescent awkwardness
which comes out of nowhere, no matter what age we are. Stammering,
dropping things and talking incoherently. For unknown reasons, this
a situation that we are all ambling to put ourselves into, and feel
our lives are just not complete without it.
We flock to movies like Sleepless in Seattle,
You've Got Mail and Pretty Woman (come on guys, admit
it, we do too!) and long for that connection, happiness and yes, ultimately
that elusive love! So we date. Some are good, and some not so.
We have all been on those dates - you know the
ones. Those that went so well that you felt giddy, and those that
you couldn't wait to have end. Those where you wanted to laugh out
loud as you couldn't believe your date could be such a moron, and
those that weirded you out so badly, that you considered a future
life in a convent or a ministry.
So share your stories with the world - all of your
stories - from the truly romantic, refreshingly humorous and even
those which were totally horrific. Then watch for them to appear in
print as word spreads and a column develops and grows. Send your stories
