    She Loves Me!

    I remember when we broke up because I couldn't sleep more that 2 hours a night the entire week leading up to it.  I was terrified of it.  At first I thought it was because she was so gorgeous and a just a bit "out of my league," and I didn't want to be alone...

    I met Arthur when I was going through my divorce. I moved into my own apartment in Boston, and next door to me lived a very friendly neighbor, and very popular. He always had friends over, and one of his most frequent visitors was Arthur. He didn't live far away so he was over...

    Work Relationships.. *shudder*

    I remember the first day I saw him.. The most PIERCING blue eyes I had ever seen in my life. It was his first day on the job.. I remember the look on his face when he saw me walk in. I'm the only woman who works there. I'm by no means gorgeous, but when I'm the only woman you...

    It has been a little over a month

    Yesterday he told me

    that maybe he convinced himself he doesn't love me that way anymore because he had to, in order to cope. I told him he is the strong one, because he was able to believe it and I couldn't lie to myself. Yesterday felt like drowning with him. Why is love so hard?

    It’s been 10 months.

    It still hurts. It is still able to tear me apart. It’s still able to cut me in two, and make me shudder at my frayed edges. But I won’t tell you. Today I read something beautiful about love. And I couldn’t help thinking of you. And I couldn’t help crying. And I felt...

    This Was Me....

    I used to be best friends with my ex-boyfriend.  We hung out at least twice a week.  At first it was okay.  I felt like I wasn't being affected.  Just friends.  Really.  For one year.  Not physical at all in the beginning.  Later maybe a...

    Why Do Others Have Issues With You Being Friends With Your Ex?

    I have been best friends with my ex since soon after we broke up 7 years ago.  We had been and lived together for almost 12 years before the split and I realised from soon after the break that I was mouring the loss of the friendship more than the loss of our relationship...
