When Nicole and I divorced, we were teachers living in Taiwan.
I’m starting my career again and all my energy goes into work and my son. A seemingly sensible saleswoman I contacted last November sent me a picture of herself in a gold bikini.For the last few months, I have been seeing a chef my age I met on the site. Before we even met, she admitted she’d come to snoop through the windows of my house to check I was above board.
