    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong

    era. Romance today is so different from what it should be. Romance today can often be one person looking at the other, nodding, and saying "hey" with the other doing the exact same in response. What happened to the old art of romance? What makes me happy is that I have now...

    My husband has always been very romantic.

    Even after being together 18 years, he's still got it. Valentine's Day was amazing. He sent me for a mani/pedi then surprised me with a dozen yellow roses and a beautiful necklace. Then the kids went to grandma's for the night and we went to dinner and watched a movie, then came...

    Death, it is a main factor in our lives.

    In my opinion, death is the center of many things in human life and society, like the principle of “carpe diem” (enjoy the present because tomorrow is uncertain). It also feeds the emotions, love (the need for someone to complete our meaning of existence), liberty (explore...

    everyone I work with thinks I'm totally spacey

    because every time a handsome man walks by me I create a weird, very detailed scenario in my head of what I would like to happen with said handsome man. I space out for like 2 minutes and get strange looks. I did actually get one guys phone number so that's good.

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.
