Teach me how to love mushrooms

I don't like mushrooms. I don't know why. I think it is mostly a texture thing, but maybe also a visual thing (like the goomba-looking ones you get in Tom Yum soup). But I don't really mind the taste and can handle small bits of mushrooms, so I feel there is hope for me yet!

So how do I learn to love mushrooms? Are there preparations that are a good entre entree? Are there types of mushrooms I should try that might make me fall in love? Or conversely, mushrooms I should avoid to further stoking my fear?

This is my summer goal (along with learning to love olives, but I will save that for another post). Maybe, eventually, I can transition from these quality mushrooms to being able to eat ANY mushrooms! Too exciting.
