Kicking back with a crinkled copy of Allure while Top 40 radio blares overhead is the closet thing modern women have to bliss. But instead of being a zen experience, my local nail salon was railroaded… READ MORE »

Over the summer, I had a first date with an attractive, smart guy who emailed me over an online dating site.
