When I was 25, I was dating a 30yo, and suddenly a bunch of his single guy friends started getting messages from ex-gfs from their early 20s. Like, those ladies had hit 30 and started going back through everybody they’d dated previously, wondering if they should give those guys another try rather than dating the great unknown. It was really interesting to see it happen, and I might’ve gone that way myself if I didn’t meet my husband.

This huge pile of writing is all from the last year, mostly the last 6 months. It’s felt really empowering to totally dive into writing.
