About the author

Eric P

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
