But if you’re not…the potential outcomes are bad to severe.
These women laid it all out there and weren't at all shy on their Tinder profiles.
Kudos to these ladies for cutting the bullsh*t and getting straight to the point.And if something bad happens, you’re blamed for not properly calculating the risks!
