Andy Michaels was confident he had found his dream woman. She was super intelligent, very attractive, and extremely decent. He could spend hours just listening to her wonderful laugh. The problem was he didn’t know her outside of work.

There’s a lot of guys who could learn a lot of important lessons from you.’’
