The Death Of Cheap Dates: Why We Should Appreciate Dates In 2015

  This post today is partially inspired by Dr. J. About a week ago he let off a series of tweets about dating. I won’t quote them all but the gist of the tweets are that none of us should be caught complaining about someone being cheap. His stance was that if you’re not paying […]
