Dear Mama Mary -
I met someone really cool at a party. We talked for a little, but I got dragged into Rock Band and he left before I could find out about him. Mama Mary, I can't get him out of my mind! What should I do?
A Desperate Daughter

Dear Daughter -
This one is easy, and you wouldn't have to ask me if you just thought a little. I know, I know, hormones make thinking difficult. OK, I'll help.
Who threw the party? Ask them who he was. Someone knows him, someone brought him, right? Find out! Then cyber-stalk him - nothing illegal, nothing obsessive, just a quick Google and a check on Facebook, LinkedIn, and (shudder) MySpace, and you'll see if he's worth pursuing. I mean, anybody can look good for a couple of hours, especially if you really didn't talk to him. For all you know, he could be the lead singer of an ICP cover band and his day job is working at Auntie Annie's Pretzels in the mall. I won't blame you if you still think he's hot, but if you bring him over for dinner I reserve the right to ask him to demonstrate the pretzel dough stretching and shaping while engaging him in a discussion about Gloria Steinem.
