I’ve recently come to terms with something: I don’t like sports. This should have been obvious to me a long time ago — like, we’re talking in kindergarten when I quit my soccer team because I was never the goalie (or as I saw it, the person who just got to stand there and do…

Dating Don’ts: 13 Types Of Texters To Be Wary Of

As if dating wasn’t hard enough – you throw in a portable, typed-word machine and suddenly it’s pandemonium.
