Over at ConversantLife, we’re through the Preface of the “dating book.”  It really needs a title–any suggestions?

This week, we’re going to be working our way through the first chapter.  My central contention–that dating and courting as institutions are dead–is perhaps the most difficult to prove.  For those readers whom have contact with high school or college students on a regular basis, I would love to hear your thoughts.

For everyone else, the commenting action has been a lot of fun.  It has been nothing short of invigorating, which I suspect will spill over to this blog eventually.  

One final note:  if you’re reading by RSS and don’t want an additional feed, I’ve spliced together only my posts from Mere-O and my posts at ConversantLife for your convenience.
