I've been reading the posts and following your progress, and all I can say is you go girl!
It takes a lot of courage to get back in the dating game, and I'm really impressed by how you're handling it and with your outlook on it all.
The vacation at the end of May is a great big step forward!
For what it's worth, I'm going to share a secret.

OK, I admit that I'm a sucker for the power of suggestion, so I've been wearing a lot more grapefruit-scented products since I uncovered this little piece of interesting trivia.

I don't know. But I think it's pretty interesting, so just thought I'd put it out there. Maybe pack some grapefruit-scented lotion in your suitcase?
