Love lessons learned

About a week and a half ago: My editor: “What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?” Me (warily, thinking I’ve got to cover some sort of V-Day event): “Why?” Editor: “No big date?” Me (snorting): “No.” Editor:  “Okay, well I may need you to cover the City Council meeting.: Me (relieved): “Oh, okay.” Now, obviously […]

Is heartbreak a two-way street?

Dating is not easy. Relationships can become complicated. And break ups can get messy. I know this both from firsthand experience as well as secondhand experience through my sister and friends. Now, it’s no secret that I’ve been single for quite awhile (nearly four years), so I can’t say my point of view on love […]

Speed dating: A social experiment

So. What does it say about a girl when she’s in a room filled with guys who are mostly Microsoft employees, doctors and engineers (throw in a few lawyers and you’ve got every Asian mother’s dream for a son-in-law) and all she can say is, “Meh”? This was the exact situation I found myself in […]

Am I anywhere near the front of the dating line?
