To Date or Not to Date?

Photo Credit – We Heart It Lately, it seems I’ve been having the same (but different) conversation with many of the ladies in my life – should they put any effort into dating. Let me start by saying that I don’t think everyone needs to be in a couple; everyone’s path is meant to be […]

Expressing Yourself (and what it’s really about)

Expressing yourself…what’s it really all about? W, X, WHY Expressing yourself through speech, painting, dancing or any other art form that reveals how you feel and who you are, never needs justification, or reason; in fact, many would argue that it’s all around better without it. But when it comes to communicating with another individual […]

It’s possibly one of the most infuriating things to hear, especially because these same women are usually complaining about their dating lives and/or their relationships. But that’s not even the […]
