Why Men Pull a Disappearing Act After Sex

  Many of you have done it. It’s been a while since you’ve “gotten some.” You met the cute guy from the (pick-your-favorite) app. And he has some good text game. Drinks.

ABC

  Always Be Creating.   I traveled the world in 2016 with Semester At Sea, a floating university that took 600 students (and me) around the world to experience different cultures. We had tons of activities and events on board–just like a real university–including quite a few performances, talent shows, etc. I participated in almost…
