gaining the attention of fellow flirty guest Doug Lewis. While
her first date with Lewis, she mocked two single women nearby who were
not as conventionally beautiful as her. Starr and Lewis spent almost a
whole week enjoying each other's company. While charmed by her looks,
he didn't like her making fun of other female guests. She was

he didn't want anything
serious with her and wouldn't spend more time with her. Heartbroken,
she decided to leave the resort. While
waiting for the taxi, she saw Lewis with a woman she had earlier
mocked, but no words were said.
Comments: Created by uncredited writer, John Romita (pencils/inks).
comics.org lists the writer to likely be Stan Lee.
These romance stories often had the flavor of the time in which they were written, and nothing else to tie them into Marvel's sliding timescale. As such, it's likely that the stories took place at the time of publication rather than being part of the sliding timescale.
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Linda Starr has no known connections to:
Doug Lewis was a single man staying at the same
singles resort as Linda Starr. He was instantly attracted to her beauty
and the two spent almost a whole week together, but ultimately found
her too shallow. He broke Starr's heart when he chose to instead get
serious romantically with
another woman whom Starr had ridiculed earlier.
