18 months ago I broke up with my boyfriend of almost 9 years and the man I thought I was going to grow old with. But I was already in love with another man - a man I should have known was wrong for me. 

This is a collection of dating stories from the past 18 months where I've conquered crippling anxiety, trying to find my way back to myself, overcoming a toxic non-relationship, and tried to find my feet in a new city - all while still living under the same roof as my ex. 

A brutally honest look into the reality of being a 20-something hopeless romantic in a city where the word "commitment" seems to be considered the scariest outcome for two people finding each other attractive.

This chapter had me in edge, heart beating in my chest. It must have been so hard...More willpower then most
Wonderful start. I oromised I'd check it out, and I'm glad I did. Finally, someone that can write
