Have you ever been to a place that seemed so ridiculously beautiful that you had to pinch yourself to make sure you were not dreaming? I have.

Throwback Friday: Romance in a one-way street

Dennis is very active when it comes to dating… Continue reading Minimum viable dates (and what to expect from them)
