Dating and meet
One phone call, 25 years and five children later, they are married and still talking — and traveling — together.A couple of months ago, I was sitting at a bar minding my own business when the woman next to me did something strange.A friend met her future husband by walking up to him at the swimming pool of a resort and asking, "How does anyone water-ski on this thing?" Another, an avid cyclist, met her husband-to-be on a bike trip in France.My copywriter friend, Suzanne, started dating a fellow team member, Joe, at her advertising agency.
Same goes for fundraising, wrapping holiday presents and teaching new skills. On planes, trains and automobiles — or waiting for them.
Others, actively dating, long to expand their pool of possible partners.
If you're in one of those groups, you're probably hoping to find your special someone — and wondering, Where can he or she be?
I waited until after the last session, then made my move: "If you sell any of those pieces," I told him, "I hope you'll let me know. you can get in touch even if you don't sell them." He called the next week, and we went out until I discovered he wasn't exactly living alone. It's a great way to meet like-minded people — provided, of course, you like skiing or the beach!
I happen to love the latter, so for years I bought weekend shares in single-parent beach houses.
