Keeping Your Ex At A Distance

I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine who is having trouble keeping his ex at a distance.

I understand she might be going through … Continue reading

Falling in Love

Science does not play a big role in the subject of love. Some researchers recognize love as a reality while others consider it to be a fantasized construct to give a meaningless life meaning.
