How to Date in Your Age Range

  I hate it when someone answers my “wait, how old are you?” with  “guess!”   I’m not guessing.

How to determine what is CHANGEABLE or NOT in a significant other

At the start of my 20s I thought that any toad could be magically turned into Prince Charming. I would date the dumb jocks for months at a time, thinking I could teach them into becoming smart. I would then dabble with the thug, thinking that with the tap of my “maybe-we-should-try-out-Banana-Republic” wand he would instantly transform into a bring-home-to-my-overcritical-Mom type of fellow.
