25 rules of dating

All this occurred in the time it took to blink my eyes.

I have no confidence whatsoever that this tactic will work, but I hope to try.

Some women flirt by sending pictures of themselves in scanty little underthings to the man they’re hoping to attract. “Sexting” is most prevalent though, the media tells us, among teen girls. Only, instead of texting racy photos of myself, apparently, I send pictures of homemade soup.

Or at least, that’s what I would be doing if my friends weren’t actively trying to stop me.

Not a relationship per se—this business of being on my own and caring only for myself is intriguing and I’m learning too much to want to abandon it.

I wasn’t interested in Match.com, nor a friends-with-benefits setup. Or so I thought until I went on the one and only date I’ve had (outside that marriage) in the last quarter century.
