Dating can be expensive. First, you invest time to find someone to ask out. Then, once you have a date, you may spend money on your appearance - a new hair cut, eyebrow wax, manicure, pedicure or a new outfit.

As it became clear that Caylee probably wouldn't come home safely, the nation learned more about her mother, Casey. A young single mom with an irresponsible streak, it was obvious that she wasn't ready to be a parent. And as I held my own child, it wasn't only Caylee's story that scared me, it was Casey's.
