I Believe

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Samantha Karlin Success Stories

I would never have asked if it wasn't for you!!

Men seeking a relationship

Hey Samantha!more

Thought I'd share with you a success of yours (and mine!). You might remember me telling you a story where I asked a girl to get drinks sometime and her giving me a run around by asking for a business card, then when she pulled out her phone, she didn't exchange numbers, but just friended me on facebook.


Turns out she had gone on a date with someone else from our social circle and didn't think mixing with another one of us was a good idea. You however, thought the fact that she actually friended me was a good sign. Anway, about a month later I got an FB message that, summed up, was her hinting at meeting up at some point. We've now been dating for almost 3 months, and even put the BF/GF label on it, which if you remember, isn't something I typically do.

So, just wanted to say thanks. Since if not for you, I would never have had the balls to ask  her for a date in the first place.
