    Wrong Word.

    I wish I could ignore it.  Endure is more the word I would choose. Recently divorced, and not dating.   Update (per request from ggrl). Since I wrote this, life has changed greatly.  I made a decision several months ago to start dating.  I dated a number...

    Poem I Wrote

    I wrote a poem one valentine's day when I was little with the lines: Cupids crash In the grass. What was that supposed to mean?  Was that an early sign of my asexuality?

    No Valentines Day

    Valentines day is supposed to be a romantic day.Why even acknowledge the day if you still would get no romance or anything at all. Why even bother
