SATURDAY

Back when I was waiting tables, a silver-haired, 40-something regular had his eye on me. Actually, he had his laser pointer on me. An infuriating red dot followed me wherever I went as this man showed me his modern-day mating display. Eventually, he handed me a carefully folded napkin with a handwritten message: “Will you go out with me?” The memory still makes me cringe, but some of you are thinking, What’s wrong with that? Luckily for you, today hypnotherapist John T. Cox and self-described “romance coach” Leslie Karsner present a flirting and romance workshop for both singles and couples, teaching the skills necessary to attract others and keep your love alive. According to Cox, “you will learn how to become a people magnet.” Sadly, it’s probably too late for my admirer: His note lacked the “Yes” and “No” boxes I needed to answer him. At 9 a.m. at the Tysons Corner Marriott, 8028 Leesburg Pike, Vienna. $99. For reservations call (703) 435-6002. (Tricia Olszewski)
