Perhaps it was his dazzling smile that made me give him the benefit of the doubt.In a grand gesture, he ordered several entrees and two desserts and encouraged me to "dig in." Feeling starved of just about everything in life at that time, I did just that and heartily devoured the feast in front of me.
He took such lingering pauses before responding that I started to think he'd forgotten the question.

He lightened up as the meal progressed and we seemed to have fun, but when he walked me to my car, he said, "It was nice to meet you" in a way that told me he would not be calling again.
I chalked it up to my voracious appetite, which may have been a turn-off for a Hollywood director accustomed to whippet-thin actresses who rarely eat, but I found out later that he already had a girlfriend.
Lesson number five: Date someone who gets your life.
After a disheartening slog through the dating trenches, I took a break and focused on other areas of my life that were sorely lacking.
The dating part seemed relatively easy -- if there was a spark, you went out again -- but the relationship part was a different story entirely.

Then there was a perfectly nice fellow, a body-builder with a sensitive side who shared lavender cupcakes and tea with me one hot summer afternoon.
He asked thoughtful questions and was a good listener, but we had a distinct lack of chemistry.
Eventually, after the fog of said miserable divorce started to lift -- or perhaps precipitated by my intense desire for it to lift -- friends and acquaintances began to set me up on dates.
