It is safe to say that I am single AF, hence the title of this blog.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this while perusing the interwebs…
…an article posted both on MarketWatch and the NY Post featuring a couple of quotes from yours truly!
I was interviewed for this months ago and had forgotten about it. Seems timely that it would post on Valentine’s Day.
Provocative NY Post title aside, give it a read. Is it junk or truth? Share your thoughts.
