The reason why nice guys finish last….



“So do you like him?”


“Are you going to see him again?”

“Well, I don’t think so”

“Why? I thought you said he was lovely, very kind, took you out, and brought you your favourite wine? What’s the problem?”

The Man Ban Cont…. Man Mix Ups

I had a rethink and scoured some of my favourite blogs for an alternative.
