I tried to bypass sloppy firsts and skip straight to emotional maturity.
Seeing relationships as they are.
Time to explode.
You and your partner should be just as strong apart as you are together.
A roundtable discussion about codependency and love.
Sometimes I’ve gotta face the world alone.
Plus wisdoms on public speaking and GETTIN’ ACTIVE.
A belated apology.
I haven’t been single in more than a decade.
