It doesn’t take cool leather pants to find love (and other lessons)

Using a phone for emergencies like Googling the number of light years between earth and Betelgeuse is necessary sometimes, but a significant other who won’t immediately throw the phone on the floor to sweep you off your feet and make you feel like Baby in Dirty Dancing is not the type of guy you want to make a significant part of your life.
You can play games to get someone’s attention, but they either love you or they don’t. If you get pregnant thinking that your baby is going to keep you together or manipulate him with crocodile tears and sad stories you are a fool.
