Funny, but the best piece of the advice she offers is “honesty is the best policy.” It’s not impossible to meet someone who is into all of you, including your desire to dress up. You may not find her right away but if you follow some of Chanelle’s advice you just might meet her. Dating advice from a 20-something? As they say, “out of the mouths of babes.”
