I don't know if it counted,"' offered Beth Whiffen, a former associate editor at Cosmopolitan.
They are not waiting on Friday night hoping "he" will call. Not Exactly."It's not that people aren't dating," explained Ms.
Rozler, an editorial assistant at Allworth Press when she is not practicing nightclub anthropology. People still want to be in relationships, but they don't want to be settling."But even as they raise pink drinks in the air and roll their eyes at the absurdity of commitment, these are not women embracing sexual abandon.
