Birds/Bees 101 (revisited)
Pretty much the entire dating cycle is beyond my comprehension, so I am always interested in other people's methods, especially when they're less unsuccessful than mine.
On the other hand, this technique of Dawn Olsen's seems awfully familiar somehow:
My idea of dating has always been to zero in on my subject and then confuse them with a befuddling mix of flattery and abuse.
Now comes this from Donna:
I will try Speed Dating again next month. And I will really try not to be so verbally combatant with the fellows. Analyzing it, I think I may purposely alienate potential matches, so they don't get the chance to reject me later.
When even the Major Babes feel like they're getting nowhere, those of us on the fringes of date-ability must surely be doomed.
