It's no secret that in this game of dating, I have some pretty strong opinions, from the nonsense around cuffing season to the ambiguous AF notion of "talking", I've got a lot on my mind. And it's not without reason. Since I keep the company of attractive, whole, successful women, I often hear stories that… Continue reading “I’m a homebody” and other lines from broke boys
I can't believe in the year of our Lord, 2018, that I have to even write this. It pains me to even bring it up but since we're in the midst of the hell that is called "cuffing season," I have to look out for my sisters. It has come to my attention that men… Continue reading Death to “Talking”
Froth: worthless or insubstantial talk, ideas, or activities In light of today's daily prompt and recent celebrity gossip, I've decided to tell the straight-shot-no-chaser version of the scandal that is Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian.
