Not only are mid-life singles not limited by race, nationality, religion, distance, or gender, but we are truly no longer limited by age. Forty-five-year-old men can date twenty-five-year-old women, wine them dine them, then turn them in for a different variety without so much as […]
There is not a woman in existence who doesn’t shit test. It’s part of our make up. We are rarely aware, in the midst of a shit test, that we are doing it. It’s organic. I believe this comes from a woman’s deep need for […]
