Online dating profiles that say I have an unnatural attachment to my Harley.

When I was 2 years old, I dropped a pair of glasses into a sewer to see if they could float. That they couldn’t infuriated my mother and puzzled me. This was the first in a long history of confusion. For instance, I’m bewildered by the popularity of Kate plus Eight. I wouldn’t even grasp the popularity of Brad Pitt plus Eight (or 100…oh come on, we all know that’s where it’s going).

Can you attract your ideal partner online?

Making yourself available is the first step in finding a partner. But being available doesn’t just mean being on an online dating site.  It means opening your heart to the experience, as well as opening your mind to it. That’s where Debra Berndt’s book “Let Love in” can help. It’s one of the few self-help books that doesn’t try to change you.  In fact, this book celebrates you.
