Any suggestions for improving this collage?
Anyone want to use this for themselves? Go ahead. Oh – maybe we need to contact the base image’s artist, someone Corrigan, somehow.

Meet the Couples:
‘Sophie & Chris’: Sophie and Chris have been living together for 6 years. Sophie has always loved the attention of men but it’s the final straw when Chris finds out about an invitation Sophie received from her boss. Now Chris is forced to look at all the other examples of Sophie’s efforts to gain attention. Feeling neglected and desperate for affection, Sophie doesn’t see the harm in casually flirting with other men.
‘Claire & Dillon’: Defining herself by being part of a couple, Claire is pushing for the relationship to progress to the next level. Dillon, in his first quasi-serious relationship, is still trying to figure out who he is and where his life is going. As Claire tries to dictate the state of the relationship, Dillon pulls further away, trying to hold on to aspects of his old life, hanging with friends and not being accountable to anyone. Will exploring the truth push their relationship to its breaking point?
‘Jamie & Alex’: dating 4 months, Alex, a director and playwright, is 17 years older than Jamie. Alex has avoided being in a committed relationship since her partner of 7 years left to be with another woman. Attempting to escape her heartbreak, Alex has decided to enjoy her independence and freedom and is currently in casual relationships with two women. When Jamie and Alex met, it was instant chemistry. Now Jamie is determined to have Alex all for herself.
‘Sonya & Peter’: Sonya & Peter have been married 11 years. She hates her job; he brings his job home. She wants him to open up; he wants the opposite. Disappointed with themselves and each other, their communication may have deteriorated past the point of no return.
Meet the Cast: Becky Bridger, Carlynn Reed, Danielle Szlawienie-Haw, Drea Burck, Jack Morton, Jonathon Neville, Lenore White, & Tim Nussey
