Excerpt from "How I Learned to Date 1988-1990" [Aug. 14th, 2006|01:05 pm]
Life Writing


On Saturday night I went out for a drink with an old friend of mine from High School Days . We had an intense couple of hours catching up on what a roller coaster life has been for us as we enter our 40's. She is in the dating pool and like most who are in it, don't feel it is a very fun place to be.Ironically we shared our cozy bar with a large wedding party complete with bride and groom.
On my way to see her "the 2 commodities of dating" popped into my head:
First Commodity: Lonliness:the motivating force that causes you to get out there and meet potential life partners. When lonliness strikes it causes you to do things you would not have done if you feel cozy and secure.This is what led me to move out of Manhattan and to Long Island with my cousins.

Second Commodity: Yourself:the development of an authentic life that you enjoy by yourself and makes you attractive to others. This is what Janet Price taught me.
