According to preliminary reports, there was probably not an immediate love connection with Danielle. I'm somewhat disappointed, but still optimistic about the future. I got that stressful "first date" thing out of the way, and now I'm officially on "the dating scene". And I shall continue to use "quotation marks" around random idiomatic phrases.
Oh, but anyway, we've been chatting, and I think I have made a new friend. So, we are all happy about that.
