On a recently available afternoon, while idly swiping on Tinder, i stumbled upon the profile of a person, weвЂ™ll call him Bobby, who described himself to be in anвЂќ relationship that isвЂњethically nonmonogamous.

Like your pet dog? (we politely decrease, sir!)
ThereвЂ™s the guy whose entire missive for me pasta that is involved вЂњPlease unmatch me personally in the event that you donвЂ™t like pasta. (more…)
