Most people’s to-do lists are, almost by definition, pretty dull, filled with those quotidian little tasks that tend to slip out of our minds. Leonardo Da Vinci was, however, no ordinary person.

It’s been a much slower process for me each time I’ve gone into a relationship. Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla. I don’t know any of us who are in relationships that are totally honest – it doesn’t exist. I have a lot of boyfriends, I want you to write that. I was dating this guy and we would spend all day text messaging each other. I don’t know the first real thing about the dating game. But I don’t want to put myself in the position where I’m in a monogamous relationship right now. ‘Sex and the City’ changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.
Every country I visit, I have a different boyfriend. He thought he could tell that he liked me more because he actually spelled the word ‘you’ and I just put the letter ‘u’. We are constantly protecting the male ego, and it’s a disservice to men. I don’t know how to talk to a specific person and connect.
