What to do if you ask a woman if she’s pregnant and she says “no.” And other times you made a mistake. And some things I wanted to say.


So, you’ve just met someone, you’re not close, and you have no reason to know if they’re pregnant or not. Or married or not. Or happy or not. Or want to be any of those things. Or what their life... Continue Reading →

RintheBay: So long, sweet summer

R2HK: making my way downtown
