The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Getting Married – Part 1

Getting married is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life.

The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Online Dating (Part 3)

I was still determined to master the art of online dating by using my skills as a long-term marketer and advertiser. I reminded myself that my profile was not for me. I was not the customer. My profile was for the person I wanted to date.

The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Online Dating (Part 2)
