    My Life Has Just Begun

    The years have gone by fast. I am not mad at the time flying, because the first 40 has been a little hard for me. I have had more than my share of lost. Early in life, I had to deal with the death of my mother and the murder of my teenage love (first common law husband); all...

    Sure I like guys my age but older men get me going. They're a lot more mature then young men. Yes I know I'm 16 but I'm turning 17 soon. The oldest I've dated was 24 years old.
