Aziz Ansari’s Book

I finished that book by Aziz Ansari, Modern Romance.  What I believe to be the main points:Hi, Hey, Heyyyy, et al don't work (what I've always said)Meet as soon as possible (agree)Too many choices makes it harder to choose (I've talked about this before) Treat people as people, not just pictures on a screenGo on an interesting date, not the standard drinks, movie, or mealDon't snoop I agree with five of these.  I'd like to agree with all six, but I'm not sure about #5.  If I were to agree to go on "an interesting date," which lasted longer than a standard date, and he turned out to be a bust,

3 Romantic Reads to Warm Your Winter Nights

Love comes in all forms, from all places and it crosses all eras. This eclectic mix of romantic books has one unifying element… love.
The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

No, not The Notebook. This marginally lesser-known novel by the incredible Mr. Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me, is a love story of no less emotion.

Cold Hard Truth

I'm glad I told that guy, "We aren't a good match" to his face.  Since we had only gone out that one time, my norm would have been to ghost him or tell him over text when he asked me out again.  Since he asked me to my face, I told him to his face.That got me thinking about things.  I want the cold hard truth.  If a guy isn't into me, I'd WANT him to say "I'm not into you" (or some variation) vs "Work is so busy."  "I'm not into you" indicates something permanent, like, "I'm not into you...and never will be."  Great!  Thank you for being honest

Talked At

I don't like going on unpleasant dates, not just because I have to sit through it while it's happening, but also because I think about it afterwards.  I've been thinking about that date last Saturday night with the irritating comments and questions guy.I think what bothered me most about him/that evening was he couldn't care less whether or not I was having a good time and talked AT me.  I didn't seem like I was having a terrible time, but I also gave no indication that it was a good time and I wanted to see him again.  I was simply polite and there.I finished my dinner much faster than

Not A Good Match

Even though I wanted to cancel very badly, I went out with that irritating comments and questions guy.  (The guy we've discussed via comments in my last post.)  We are not a good match.  The food was good.  The conversation was long and drawn out.  He might not have been aware of social cues?  He didn't seem to notice or care when my eyes were glazing over.  I told him we had to leave after the waiter walked by the fifth time. I had already known I wouldn't be seeing him again when he first walked in.  His pictures must have been ten years old.  Instead of getting up and
