We all have different taste; some wider and some more narrow than others. You are simply not for everyone, and quite frankly, that is a good thing!
Why is it that every time you start to date some one for the first time, it seems to go great for the first month or two and then it turns out like all the rest? In short, it’s because
The question that I constantly get asked, which irritates me most, is “How is a beautiful woman like you single?” My literal response varies, however the content doesn’t and that’s simply “because I choose to be.” I had a friend
