Conversations. We hear them everyday and everywhere; on the news, on the train, at the office, at the mall. People talking about the weather, their families, the news, their lives, the new boss. In the dating world, good conversations are the key to good chemistry. Have you ever been out to dinner and your date just won’t stop talking? You wonder if you will ever get in a word in edgewise?

Love and romance are much more complicated in the real world than what we read about in fairy tales or see in the movies.
Have you ever started dating someone and things were great to begin with only to be disappointed a few weeks or days later? We all have a picture in our minds of what our ideal relationship would look like.
