The 10 Phases of Dating, my debut book, goes on sale October 1! In the past couple of years, I’ve fallen out of habit with writing on my blog, but I’m planning to change that from now through the launch of the book.

If you’re ever on a date with someone who starts a sentence with “I’m the kind of girl/guy who…”, run in the opposite direction. Here’s why. Mr. “I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t cheat on girls” is absolutely the kind of guy who cheats on girls.
