  • Randy once hyped up our anniversary date and as we drove the freeways in So. Cal I envisioned places I wanted to see but hadn't yet such as Manns Chinese Theatre or maybe a trip to Big Bear. We ended up at the Long Beach arena to watch Hulk Hogan, Randy Macho Man Savage and various others. Yup that was his big surprise. Needless to say, he is not allowed to plan any more anniversary dates.

  • I have not dated in two decades, besides my husband, and I have to say that location never played into whether or not we had fun. We don't get date night or even anniversary dates too often, though I'm hoping soon to change that.

    When I was young, I loved dates with interesting or unique activities, learning new things and that had some adventure. Dinner and a movie can get old sometimes. Bad dates were the ones where the guy was really, really quiet and awkward and my attempts at humor were met with scary staring.

    That's really, by and large, the bad experience I had dating -- the guy didn't like me or didn't seem to have any interest whatsoever in relating, and after a painful, awkward evening, I chalked it up to lack of interest and attraction, avoided him and his calls after that, if any. Which was always weird when they seemed nice and bright when we first talked on the phone, in class, or if we were friends before he asked me out.

    Other highlights included the time I misunderstood the meaning of the term, "nooner," as in, "So, how about we meet up for a nooner and catch up on each other's days." (I honestly thought we were just going out for lunch, or at least that it would include lunch with our clothing on).

    My stunts, including flirting with other guys and vomiting in the movie theater parking lot after a movie that followed an afternoon of drinking at a rugby party, at which I flirted with other guys, never seemed to drive away the guys I dated to the extent you'd think it would.

    I'm incredibly fortunate that I found the right guy very early in life. If I was forced back into the dating arena by Edward being run over by a bus or something, I'm sure it would confuse, mystify and frighten me into staying single.

    Best of everything out there! Hope you find tons of fun and happiness and maybe the special one.
