EXCERPTS FROM CHEMISTRY & NUMBERS 2
FOUND: Love Online
By Jamie Biegeleisen
I gave him my number and we talked on the phone. Since things were still going well, we decided to meet that night. He drove to me and my first thought when I saw him was, "He's so short!" Not the greatest start to a date, huh? We went to a bar and ended up having a great time. We were joking and laughing and getting along really well. Unfortunately, I felt that we were in two different phases of our lives-he was still trying to find himself, and I thought that I had already done so.
I don't know why, but I agreed to a second date. On my drive down to visit him I called my best friend and said, "This is our second and last date. I'm only going because he drove to Baltimore and I feel bad about that. We'll hang out on his turf and this will be it." Seven hours later I was on my way back home, calling my brother at 2 a.m., and telling him that while it could have been something I had eaten, I was pretty sure I had butterflies. Fast forward three years later and we are married.
Getting Back on the Horse
By Julia Light
I walk down the stairs and just continue walking right out the door to the sidewalk up the block to my car jump in start her up and drive away. I have a pang of guilt. I dismiss it. How often have I been stood up, walked out on, or otherwise been "dissed"?
The following day I receive an angry email. "Where did you go? I thought you might've been hurt! I was worried!!!" The guilt returns. I'm not that type of person! I decide to email him the truth using the safety of the computer. I tell him that "you lied to me about your appearance. I was uncomfortable around you and I wasn't sure what else you could be lying about. I did not mean for you to worry, but frankly we barely knew each other. Get some perspective. Best wishes."
Nice Girls Don't Internet Date
By Desdemona Bandini
He picked me up in his Cadillac Escalade SUV and dropped hints of his million-dollar ventures, but we had fun. The next date he wanted me to go to his palatial crib and watch a movie while he cooked for me. Translation: Sex. I was suppose to do the usual, "Oh, your car is big, your house is so nice, do me." But I didn't. I said I would go on a date, but not to his house. He threw a tantrum and that was that.
The next guy was James 007, who was from the South, and had an adorable photo of a blond yuppie that turned out to be very old. He had straggly black hair and looked like the devil. His music choice: Marilyn Manson. He requested I wear black. When he tried to spank me within 10 minutes of meeting me, I'd had enough.
Cyber Love and the Swingers Club

Ken whispered in my ear, "They're swingers. Everyone here swings."
