Enigmatic only begins to describe me! I love discussing dating and relationships, which is why I decided to create this podcast! Perpetually "unlucky in love" I thought getting advice and hearing stories from other people could teach me a lot!
When I'm not pouring my feelings into a mic, you can find me out with friends for food and drinks, turning tricks on a pole, playing B league soccer, reading tons of trash fiction books, eating tacos in bed, planning my next vacation, and studying to become a Chartered Professional Accountant (or working away as one while I fake it til I make it anyway). I'm a hopeless romantic, a calculated person, forthright with my opinion, and... someday you'll likely hear guys describe me as the one that got away.
