Tagline: Jenny thinks the idea of trying ot meet someone in a cute way is just ridiculous. It really is, isn't it?
I also wanted to point out Musolf foreshadowed something and followed through with another mention two times.
Foreshadow: Last weekend, while waiting for my tires to be rotated, I picked up a magazine with George Clooney on the cover.
Follow Through: Not too tall and going a little gray, this man would never be mistaken by anyone for George Clooney.
Foreshadow: Karen is a newlywed who thinks everyone should hop on the romance merry-go-round for a nice, long ride.
Follow Through: Enough time for the romance merry-go-round to slow down and let us hop on board.
This type of thing can tighten the weave of your story in a way that most readers won't pick up on. They'll feel the story is better in some way, but they would never be able to figure out that something subtle like this does the trick.
