    In the past, I looked at dating as a pass or fail. If I went out with someone on a date and it did n’t end in a goodnight kiss, or it did n’t end in the second date, I considered it a failure, i do n’t think of that anymore. I now realize the value of going on a date and being so grateful that someone opened up and gave you their time … shared their story with you.
