I have made 2008 my year to find true love again.
I don’t think of it as such an odd request, but my friends certainly do.
My girlfriend in Milwaukee practically jumped through the phone when I told her. I mean, she basically said I was nuts and I had better reserve my room at the heartbreak hotel pronto.
Another friend with perfect prose wrote in an email:
I always thought of you as more of a hardened jaded (distinguished) girl who has seen and done it all. Now I see the emotional vulnerability behind that fierce mask – smoke and mirrors.
I had to ask myself: Do I really come off as that jaded? Maybe I do. And for the record, I consider myself more of a dame than a girl.
Maybe I am nuts to search for love on the ultimate island of lost souls, but I’m going to give it a shot.
