Remember when you were little and got a scratch, scrape or “boo boo”? Mom or your caregiver came over with the peroxide or rubbing alcohol to clean your wounded area.

When you’re single, sometimes it’s hard to see things clearly. For many of us, a significant other is a sounding board in a lot of ways.
