When you’re dating a man, I know it’s really important for you as a woman, to introduce us to your best friend. We dread that night. When you hang out with your best friend, you always act like a giggly little teenager. You find things soo funny. The conversation will be normal and then you’ll break into story telling mode about something that you and your friend think is funny, thinking that we should find it funny also. We don’t think it’s funny at all.
"The Atlantic" magazine stated Definitively last month that women STILL can't have it all. Well, harrumph.
