Or someone graduating high school!” My second thought was, “Why didn’t I think of this idea for a book first?!”   Tweeting with GOD is a…


When a Woman Likes a Man

I wrote an article with a friend of ours, Arleen Spenceley, regarding what should a woman do (from a man’s perspective) when she likes a man and she’s posted it up on her website.  She’s written some quality stuff, I highly recommend reading her posts.   Check out the article by clicking here!   Remember that dating is less about the games…
