    I have a practical strategy--enjoy your own company. There are no guarantees you'll find a partner--or keep one--so learning to entertain yourself is a valuable skill.

    I inquired something like that once about a mutual acquaintance--"How married?"
    Those were the days.

    I went on a date with a lovely Tanzanian woman last weekend. Age 46, no kids, never married, college educated, employed full time.

    We met for tea at a cafe and then strolled through the neighborhood together.

    The rapport was natural and easy! Conversation flowed pretty well and we learned a lot about each other.

    Yes! Then she told me she is in the process of adopting a baby from Africa.

    Oh come on! You were holding that one back as a zinger - and it was certainly a good one!
