With right perspective, even bad dates are good

Bad dates are bad for a host of reasons. Maybe your date did something revolting, like my mother's date who foraged through garbage cans. Maybe you found you had little to talk about, like my sister, whose date wore earplugs all through dinner; or your conversation took a wrong turn, resulting in a fiery debate about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

I once went out with someone who thanked me for driving, adding that his license had been revoked since his release from prison three days earlier. (Bad dates tend to run in my family, and I surmise that they are somehow hereditary.)
