The person we call our Cupid steered me toward Yahoo.com personals when my year of recovery from grief was complete and I was ready to begin dating again. Give it a try, she suggested. What have you got to lose? At the time, I was thinking what could go right. I was not thinking the myriad of things about online dating that could go wrong.
Life is a daring adventure or nothing, Helen Keller said. Signing up for Yahoo was the first step of the biggest adventure of my life, and I'm eternally grateful to Cupid for giving me the courage to try.
