The High Hopes of Round-Heeled Girls

Are you single? There’s a big secret you need to know. When you learn the truth of this secret your entire life will change for the better.

Why is it that you don’t know this secret? It’s one of perspective. Far too often, single people focus on the fact that they’re “alone.” When in public, they notice all the couples holding hands. At the movies, it seems as though everyone else has a date but them.
