Cheese 70

Help me learn to like Blue Cheese!

I'm a cheese-lover, but I just can't stand anything with blue in it (ditto with really strong chevres, too, actually). Can't handle the strong flavor.

The problem is, I really WANT to like it. I believe it's an acquired taste, just like many other things I've "learned" to appreciate, that maybe I didn't like in my teens or college days (spicy curries, red wine, black coffee, etc.).

So, how do I start getting accustomed to it? I'm living in France until January and would love to like blue cheese by the time I leave. Any more milder types that someone could suggest? Maybe I can "work my way up?"
Any suggestions?
