It’s been a long time since I went on a date. My husband and I have what we call date night most Thursdays, but it’s nothing like today’s dating scene.



I won’t bore you with what dating was like back when we first met, but I will say he made me feel pretty special. I’ve heard so many tales about what happens on today’s dating scene, it’s so different it’s hardly recognizable. When did men stop picking women up at the door and actually committing to taking us out? Now days there are more ‘how about we meet at’ instead of ‘I’ll pick you up at’. Did the feminist movement mean we didn’t want men to pull out their wallets and pick up the check?




Group dates are all the rage now, too. I’m sure there is an advantage to several men and women going out together. Safety in numbers and all that stuff, but at the end of the night who do you take home?


There are advantages to the new dating trend, too. Freedom. If there’s no commitment, there are no restrictions. That means on today’s dating scene everyone gets a test drive, to kick the tires and check out the merchandise before making any decisions and hopefully, before any hearts get broken.

I really enjoy your books and really look forward to reading more! I’m hoping you pick my name for the $20.00 gift certificate also.
