Undeterred, I’m planning to attend this week – and purchase a ticket farther in advance! Meanwhile, I ended up spending a surprising amount… More »

“Guys [on] online dating sites, though available, are just not as attractive to me when we meet.

I’m all for banning kids from places (especially airlines), but if you’re going to have a wedding without children it understandably presents some challenges for any parents invited to attend your nuptials.
