One of the most fascinating aspects of dating so much lately (through Match.com) has been listening to the similarities and differences in the dreams, hopes and fears expressed by my dates. We're all more alike as well as different than we ever imagine. We're each the unique hero of our own stories, on the one hand, and a mere, anonymous bubble of commonly shared longings, on the other. We're all buying the same furniture and arranging it in similar--if not exactly the same--ways.
Hopefully, those of us who are divorced aren't rearranging it on the Titanic.
