Ahh dating…like on the back of a White Sox game ticket, fans assume the inherent risk that they may just get smashed by a flying ball. As with relationships, statistics reflect most don’t work except the “one”, so when engaging, do you tread lightly or dive in, be vulnerable and accept the risk you may get smashed? One may suggest there is no other way.. knowing the upside, that initial euphoric feeling that eventually turns into a deeper steady connection that still is so great by its own simplicity.  And well, for the downside, if you have had your heart crushed (and in my opinion everyone should at least once), you know what it is like to be completely vulnerable and that is both a scary and truly amazing feeling.  To know you can actually have and own those feelings. And once you’ve been there, you recognize though it may be difficult to recover, it is truly a gift that you were ever able to “feel” those feelings in the first place.

Here’s hoping that Professor Turley’s Torts 101 class rubs off, you assume the risk and go for it!
