Early on in my writing forays, a former co-worker introduced the term “mind-dating” to me.
Mind-dating is when you imagine different scenarios with a person you’re interested in but in reality, you’re not taking any action, M. said.
Recently, I’ve been reviewing my past loves as the hot weather has drained thoughts of my eternal love, gastronomy, for the present time.
Would my love life have been different had I dated B., the boy-next-door, in eighth grade? How could I have done things differently with I. in high school? Would that have changed my fate?
