I'm happily married so I don't have to deal with the dating aspect of this, but I thought this was a nice article
. It is especially relevant to me because in the last few months I've had to start having my wife warn me if she is wearing certain lipstick (or any) for that matter. :/
I did like this quote from the article though:
In an email discussing our airport picnic date, this is what I wrote: “I have a special request. Do you mind washing off your face and rinsing out your mouth after eating your regular double egg muffin combo whatchmacallit at BOI – big smile? It may seem like it’s not necessary, but it does make a difference to know that when I give you a kiss, I will have the peace of mind that it is gluten-free. D***, sometimes asking directly and specifically for what you need is hard.”
Isn't that so true? And tiring too.
