3 Dating Mistakes Men Make

Total Posts to Date

Dating: If dating constitutes writing “I <3 S.O.S.” on your hand in gelly pens, Lauren has been dating since the fifth grade.
Expertise: Lauren is just about 24 now and thinks that age has brought a little clarity. She is in the dating scene but not to the point where sometimes she knows better. It's an interesting phase. Of her three best friends: one is married, one in a relationship and one is trolloping around Europe. That all seems normal to Lauren, who said she is less judgmental than she used to be. At a certain point, you realize most people are just on different paths to the same end.
Background: A lot of tearful conversations with a lot of silly friends.
Education: Bachelor's degree in classical studies.
Relationship status: Single!
Hobbies? Reading, word jumbles, marathon napping, pretending she went running, singing to her cat.
