Are you actively trying to meet somebody, but yet every time you meet someone you’re so busy that the next time you're free to go out on a date is ten days away?

Just about every bar is rife with men who would be thrilled to meet you, but you can’t always expect them to fall at your feet.

As a licensed counselor, I have the privilege of not only helping my clients figure out how to make better choices, but also, I learn how to make better choices myself.
