10 Qualities of a Modern Day Warrior

I hate putting the word “modern” next to the word warrior. Once a warrior always a warrior, I say.

10 Ways to Tell If You’re Dating a Warrior Or a Coward

Ah the warrior and the coward; two men in opposition of one another. While one hides, the other fights. And while one stays calm, the other lashes out in fear.
