Let’s face it...you’re not a pimply teenager wearing rose colored glasses.

You’re a sometimes pimply, gravity challenged, 40+ woman wearing battle scars from your past forays into love.

But, despite that cold hard reality, you’re optimistic and want to believe love is out there for you (it is!).

The idea of dating to find it, however, sometimes sounds like more trouble than it’s worth.
