One night at Berri’s café, while sharing a delicious pizza and sparkling water- (yes, I somehow managed to find the only dry bar in LA, can you believe it?), Mark told me about his dating company and its concept, which is quite unique.

Communication Gaps Part 2

Following my post yesterday, read the scenario my dinner described and then think about the communication gap. A man is watching the news, while his partner is taking a bath in preparation for a night out, and sees that the temperature will be dropping drastically later on. As he watches her get dressed for the evening ahead, he notices her choice of a sleeves dress...
