The Truth About ‘Potential’

May 30, 2015


You hear it a lot when it comes to dating and relationships – has it got ‘potential’? We all do it don’t we. Ask each other that when one of us meets someone new.  And in many cases, that’s what we’re looking for. Something, or someone, with potential. Potential for what though? Does it have to always […]
