Incident after incident keeps popping up and I am sick of it. "Karens" are popping up everywhere there is a camera to record them.

Anti Cuffing Season

Disclaimer : Cuffing does not necessarily mean marriage . Drafting/Practice (FOR ME)  is growing feelings for, spending extensive time getting to know, and being physically intimate with someone. At this stage of my growth, I personally do not desire to give a title or my body to someone who I wouldn't want to be raising… Continue reading Anti Cuffing Season
