Or maybe you never really thought about it until you met Mr. Right and now you have to actually make this important decision.

If you're reading this, you're most likely aware that I once decided to go on 30 online dates in 30 days and (over)share my experiences with complete and total strangers. The actual 30-day period took place in the fall of 2013. Why did it take me a full year to begin writing about it? Let's just say it was a rough and bumpy road to recovery.
