You Might Be a Love Addict If…

by Alicia Dattner on April 20, 2012

I’ve written a little a quiz worthy of Jeff Foxworthy… (you know, the guy who did the bit, “You might be a redneck if…”)  it’s nice to bring a little humor into the topic of love, sex, and relationship addiction.. God, I still can’t believe I’m blogging about this in public. So here are a […]
