If you've heard one story about a video game-addled young man being seduced by a much older woman, you've heard them all, right? Please forgive me if I'm being too flip with this tale of woe and weird, but it's going to take some odd twists and strange turns.

In the second half of my fourth decade, I became a single mom. For a year it was more than enough and I threw myself into a world of sippy cups and story-times. But one spring day, as the cherry trees blossomed, a longing bloomed in me—I wanted something else, someone else. So I dusted off the Goldfish crumbs and decided to date.

It's insulting, but we can't help nodding our heads and chortling because—you know what?—we judge others based on their writing abilities and book choices as well, especially when we're considering spending a lot of quality time with them in the future. Some prosal faux pas to avoid when it comes to the literal language of love?

Too often I hear men complaining that women won’t respond to their online dating profile or call them back.
