Dating Etiquette

I was talking to two female friends recently.  One is 28-years-old and the other is 44.  Both are single.  I had asked them their opinion on a recent news story out of Oregon.  The story involved a 49-year-old woman who met a 69-year-old retired dentist online.  They went on three dates.  On the fourth date [...]

What’s Up Doc?

Almost a year ago, I posted a column called “Old School Liability.”  That was probably before most of you started reading this blog.  Feel free to go back and check it out if you’d like.
