I was tired at 11:45 PM, it’s now 5:46 AM, and I am still not asleep. I spent 3+ hours in bed trying to sleep. Eyes closed and everything. Yesterday night, I got approximately 5 hours of sleep in all. Tomorrow at 12 noon is my first day of unpaid “work” for the MindfulGroup online […]

So someone wanted to know if the Internet’s dating scene was all about sex. My response: The Internet is a horrendous place to meet people you want to care about.
