Placed in human beings are the needs and desires necessary for reproduction. Along with these natural desires, comes personal gratification, as well as, pleasure. All of these are
Ladies and gentlemen. I'm on the soapbox again and it's not a good thing.

But you can't expect to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right if you can't acknowledge the Father in the morning and thank him for repairing your mind and body while you slept or for even waking you up at all!

Where have all the good men gone?
There seems to be a conspiracy for women in the singles scene, a mystery that not even Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes can solve. It's the mystery of the "Good Man".
