Sofia-It's the best way! Love's Awakening was amazing and I highly recommend it!

Anne-Yeah it does!

Sandra-As far as I know they did exist but now I kinda want to look it up and know more!

Claudia-The only time I use electronic devices for my posts is when I want to add a pic that is already on my phone!

Katherine-Yeah it can be a bit frustrating!

Elizabeth-I agree and yes they published a list of the eligible females and their monetary worth.
