Warum es halb so schlimm ist, dass alle meine Dates in der Friendzone enden

Ich hatte gerade ein erstes Date mit einer Frau, die ich über eine Dating-App kennengelernt habe. Ich habe ein ziemlich gutes Gefühl, denn der Funke und die gewaltige sexuelle Energie zwischen uns waren deutlich spürbar. Außerdem erfüllt mich der Gedanke daran, sie hoffentlich bald besser kennenlernen zu können, mit Aufregung. So weit, so gut. Kaum zu Hause angekommen, erhalte ich auch schon eine Nachricht, die mich erschaudern lässt: „Ich würde dich gerne wiedersehen…, aber nur als gute Freu...

Review: Dark Waters

— by BEV QUESTAD — If you’ve still got some Teflon pans, dump them immediately at a toxic waste site.

Robert Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) can’t help […]
