Hot to Cold to Back Again

Hot to Cold to Back Again

You met the best guy – funny, attentive, and curious about you. You weren’t looking for him, and yet, there he was – he appears in your life. He pursues you. You tell him that you’re not really looking for anything serious right now. Inside you think...

Changing Paradigms

Smokin’ hot babes. I laughed – how awesome. I’ve been watching a show on Netflix, Cobra Kai, which continues the story of the 1980s hit movie, The Karate Kid, some thirty-four years later. Today, we find the divorced and defeated Johnny Lawrence, once the...
