Kisses are like Rold Gold Pretzels

On dating: My sister is right about #2. It's not me. And, I fear if I adopted the attitude, I wouldn't treat girls as they should. Reminds me of a quote from a Bernard Shaw play:

The greatest secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls; in short, behaving as if you were in Heaven, where there are not third class carriages, and one soul is as good as another.
-George Bernard Shaw

No girl deserves the "third class carriage," make-out-and-don't let-the-door-hit-you-on-the-way-out" designation. Kissing isn't bad, of course, but the "kiss as many as possible" attitude probably is.

One day now, mark my words, I'll have this:

She smiled, and the shadows departed;
She shone, and the snows were rain;
And he who was frozen-hearted
Bloomed up into love again.

-John Addington Symonds

I got accepted to England study abroad. Now I just need to decide if that's what I want to do for summer term.
