A fifth generation Californian who’s lived and traveled all over the country, I’ve been writing since my first short story ( at age 8 ) published on my parent’s fridge.
They have, since then, realized that small, initial sign of support may have sabotaged later efforts to include their daughter in the family investing business because those pesky, alluring, inviting and intrusive words just keep getting in the way.
Due to the increasing number of amusing stories, conversations and ideas gathered by 20+ years of dating, my friends have finally convinced me to write about it. So here it is, a collection of shared words, thoughts, laughter and tears examining the concept we call “dating.” (no worries to my friends and dates…I’m not one to dredge your stories into the public forum unless we both agree it makes a great story for popular consumption)
If sometimes I meander into talking about cultural differences and similarities, well, it’s a passion that endlessly entwines my examination of the American dating culture so please bear with me and post your own thoughts alongside mine.
Thanks for reading,
