Why Our Single Friends Are Single

Cartoon about men and women sleeping together

           Love this “Dating” vs. “Relationship” comic series – guess which is which?

I’m wading into dangerous waters with this column, but has that ever stopped me? This column is based on a very scientific study that I’ve conducted by observing the lives and behavior of four of my single friends; two men and two women.
