“But I’m not just dating my husband. Recently I’ve started dating someone else, too. I’m dating myself. And I wish I had started sooner. After a few months of trying it out, I’ve decided I will be dating myself indefinitely. Unfortunately, it took a nasty fight with my husband before I ever considered the possibility.”
