  • “How to Be Single”: A 21st Century Guide?

    Picture this: a couple of weeks into February; I went to the cinema to see “The Revenant.” Looking back now I know it was probably not the smartest idea, but I needed to focus on something other than my recently shattered love life, and Leonardo DiCaprio is always good for my mental health.
