I really, truly do not want to have to resort to on-line dating, but I see no other means to meet someone acceptable because I live in this very small town where the only unattached men are uneducated rednecks (I apologize if I'm offending anybody - but wailing it is accurate!!!)

Can you reflect, learn and do even better....yep, but we do not understand where we're sometimes until we do a road test, right?
