I think the top three worst things about moving to a new city/state as a single female are the following: learning the dating scene, trying to make new friends, and looking for brunch spots and coffee shops. All three of those are very, very important to me. Where I’ve made one friend, started dating a … Continue reading There’s a New General in Town
