    Grumbling a Little, Over the Endless Absense of Love

    Romantic Love,that Is

    I have had some one night stands - nasty, ugly experiences with women that were very poor choices. I am not ugly - far from it - but my online personals go almost entirely ignored. At 44, in a big city, I have never dated anyone for more than a week. And I'm not the one breaking...
