I’m a dating rookie, but a veteran witness of others’ relationships.

Do you have to have sex? And WHAT is a dental dam?
Trying out that whole not-a-care-in-the-world thing.
“Life is freakin’ radical, and it’s only going to get better.”
“Don’t get in your head and lose an opportunity,” plus other advice.
I was never the girl in that Weezer song.
Things are looking up.
