The Adventures of Dumpster Boy: Discarded after Divorce

Posted By rbaxter80 on Dating - Triggers. I hate triggers. Monday was my birthday and I was winding down the day. Like most of my birthdays, I try to keep things low key.

Teaching an old dog new…what did you call me???

Posted By rbaxter80 on Dating - As I get older and more stuck in my ways, its become harder to find people who aren’t incredibly overprotective. Not of their kids, nope.

Band of Brothers

Posted By rbaxter80 on Dating - I made two big mistakes on Super Bowl Sunday of 2017. Don’t ask me which teams were in the game or who won.

What Taylor Swift Songs Taught Me About Love That Purity Culture Didn’t

Posted By rbaxter80 on Dating - Taylor Swift knows a lot about love. She has been writing songs about it and her experiences for some years now!
