    Different Is Scary Sometimes

    I know what a healthy relationship is, but apparently I am confused by it. I'm used to the sort of man that has to be all affectionate in public in order to tell everyone that I am his and in turn gets upset when attention of any kind is payed to another man. Of course this is a...

    My best friend, Tim is gay.

    But lately I have been confused about our relationship. He and I have recently started having sex and sharing parts of each other we never did with anyone else. What is happening?!

    I feel like I'm sitting on the fence.

    I don't know if I should stay content where I am and not feel completely happy or satisfied or if I should risk it all and be alone. The idea of a new experience or life change sounds desirable...although I'm afraid of the bad that could happen with a blank canvas and no one...

    Mixed Signals

    Just as love's turning to hatred, Just when I think I've had enough, Just before my heart freezes over, He'll make some small gesture of love, He'll redeem himself. Flowers just because, A hug or kiss out of the blue, Calling just to ask how my day is, A sudden showing of respect...
