Ever wonder why men seem to be Mr. Wonderful at first but really start to show their asses after a few months? It's as if they couldn't keep up the act once they thought they had you hooked. You may have found a selfish short-term thinker rather than a generous long-term thinker.

Artist. friend, and Kinsey 6 Corey Green joined me to just kind of tell me the story of his life.
