How to Treat Every Day Like It’s Friday

Total Posts to Date
Dating: Nick was dating 20 years before marriage. Expertise: Nick has always been the guy friends would come to for advice on relationships, and he developed a knack for giving helpful insights. Vackground: After college, Nick was a disc jockey for a few years, when the love generation was still alive, so Nick has a lot of relevant experience to draw from when it comes to every aspect of dating, falling in love and screwing things up. Education: Bachelor's degree in humanities and a slew of master’s credits in journalism. Relationship status: Nick has been married for 20 years. He finally settled down and got married at 40 and now has a wife and three teenagers at home — so he has plenty of knowledge about long-term relationships, too. And the kids help keep him current on music, technology and today’s dating scene. Hobbies: Watching "Dancing with the Stars," "Castle" and "Revenge," sampling various vintage beers (anything in a can or bottle will do) and massaging his feet. Nick is a news junkie and tries to keep up on the latest non-fiction when he has time.
