(Hi! That’s me!)
*DISCLAIMER: Any similarity to actual dates,
living or dead, is on purpose because these
stories are true. Results may be atypical, but
really, who am I to judge?
Rule 1: There Are No Rules.
All Hail Moral Rela#vism.
But there is a good rule of thumb:
Rule 2: Embrace a High Rate of Da#ng
Not every venture is successful.
This is good because some people are
And some#mes that person is you.
(And me, okay? Some#mes, that person is me.)
Rule 3: Try Not to Hide
Rule 4: Work With What You’ve Got.
(Just. Say. Something.)

Rule 6: Everyone Gets One Get Out of
Jail Free Card.
Rule 7: Know When to Hold’em;
Know When to Fold’em.
