Your Desire For Love Isn’t Weakness, It’s Wisdom.

There’s this weird societal idea  that if you desire love, or are looking for it, that somehow makes you… weak… needy… or even desperate. I see it often in how people view dating, like it’s a necessary evil… ‘Don’t tell people how we met (online) because, you know – that’s …

Boundaries, who’s upholding your borders?

What’s Age Got To Do With It?
