The Newbies are here for Xmas!


Dear Hillary,

If I take a girl from one of the local bars, does that mean I can’t ask one of the others out on another occasion? I’m new to all this and don’t want to do the wrong thing.


Dear Peter,

All’s fair in love and bar. It is each to her own (be careful it isn’t each to his own). Just take it slow, enjoy the moment and keep your head on your shoulders. Do not fall in love with the first girl you meet. She is just one of the 10,194 working out of 3,671 bars. (I made those numbers up, so don’t write in to say my maths are off.)
