Extremely sad. Anita is the kind of person you hope would be around a long time.

Cheers. I start reading these things and once the date is underway am bracing for disaster. Not this time. Pleasant all the way around, and probably not coincidentally, here we've got actual adults, 2 more »

I like these two a lot and even if there wasn't a romantic connection it sounds like they could've been friends. Things in common, things to talk about, had a good time. I was surprised they didn't ex more »

I like Sana. It was not a good match by Cupid, but her responses are a model of the kind of tact and maturity you hope to see (more often) in these columns. I like Pete too. Some of his comments seem more »

2nd what SavingRemnant said. Ty Burr is my favorite part of the Boston Globe. Here's another great piece of writing from him, like he did for Philip Seymour Hoffman earlier this year. Two legends. I'l more »

It's a tough one. Pete tells us about Liz, Liz tells us about Liz. It's a nice contrast when he lists all the things they have in common and she follows with "I wondered why we were set up." Did she l more »

It's about as good a Dinner With Cupid as you can read--I wonder if that was an 'A-' for Daniel what an 'A' could be, but it doesn't matter--really great for them, a great match, two people who only n more »

Weiner is sad, narcissistic, desperately power-hungry - and so is his wife. They should find a way to live their lives outside politics. They insist in putting on this embarassing show.
