After a long cool spring, summer is finally here. (Thats
the bad news.) But the days when everyone leaves are long
gone. Theres still plenty happening for singles; see the calendar
section for whats going on.
Im taking an ASU class that is going to San Francisco for the first
two weeks of July! Talk about a field trip! Fifteen of us are staying
in a hostel in the Mission District. Should be very interesting. Ill
keep an eye out for singles activities in the San Fran area and report
Thanks to everyone who responded to the dating survey were conducting
with Dr. Paul Mongeau of the communication department at Arizona State
University. Were going to start compiling data in the next few days,
and expect to have a report for you next issue.
If you havent answered the three short questions, you can still
do so from our web site at http://azsinglescene.com/mongeau.htm. We appreciate
Lots of letters this issue that weve received in response
to the various singles websites and e-newsletters that Harlan and Jeff
have been developing. These include the tried-and-true material that Harlan
tested for many years in his Divorce Recovery, Singlization and Dating
Again classes. The sites are listed in this issue, or you can link to
them all from the Single Scene website (azsinglescene.com).
Interesting case of the Arizona woman charged with illegally accessing
her husbands ex-wifes e-mail account 215 times. As we go to
press, the judge is considering whether the plea bargain for probation
and a fine is too lenient. What would the sentence be if shed snuck
over and read all the exs U.S. post office mail? Technology is playing
out in a lot of new and unexpected ways in relationships, and its
taking the law -- and the courts -- a while to catch up. Meanwhile youd
think some counseling should be part of the sentence too.
If youre heading out of town for awhile this summer, you can find
our list of singles publications around the country through our web site
If youre in town, heres a sum-mer date idea unique to our
area: When theres a dust storm forecast, head to one of the restaurants
with a great view and have dinner while you watch the storm roll in! (You
can see to some great duststorm pictures that Jeff took, on the Az. Department
of Environmental Quality site, at http://www.adeq.state.az.us/environ/air/dust.html.)
In town or out, summer will be over quicker than we expect, so get out,
get involved with some fun singles activities, and enjoy!
