    So Many Making Good Guys Go Bad.

    On so many social sites and dating site I see so many girls and women that will say anything for attention. They will post at least 5 selfies per day just to feed their ego. They act like they are deep or an intellectual and comment on a geeky thing when they have a profile pic...
