    This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment.

Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”
