For example, it was only by happenstance that I stumbled upon a new project in Ashland - a music venue and night club actually - through Facebook. This new project i...

Every once in a while, a man meets that special someone. You know the one. A friend who wants to be more that a friend, but without any of the messy social awkwardness that usually comes with that type of relationship.
