I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks

I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks

Being single ain't for wusses...
When it comes to being single, I live on some weird border of Prideland. I mean for Heaven’s sake, it’s my middle name! I have never had a “wedding fantasy.” I am baffled at why people still spend so much money on wedding rings. It seems to me like it should be more an “a... Read more »
