    A Letter To My Lover

    I am torn between feeling guilty about lying and knowing that there really was no other option if we wanted to be together. We met on the internet playing a game 9 years ago, when we were both just kids. We stayed in touch, basically becoming pen pals over nearly a decade. God...

    Killing Me Softly

    At the moment I have been dating a mormon guy (he's 22). We met in high school in band and he was a year older than me. We were friends for quite a while. I knew I liked him but tried to keep my distance because of my hurtful past with the LDS church. I ended up falling pretty...

    I Am The Secret Girlfriend.

    About a year ago my boyfriend broke up with me after pressure from his family to end our relationship.  I thought of him every day and, out of pain, became involved with someone else.  He tried to contact me several times and I was very cruel and cold to him. He also...

    Quickly, how do I meet people on skype? This shouldn't take long to say. In the past there was always someone to give the bride away. Now this is just tradition, but the natural one to give the bride away was the father and now this is no longer the case. Why was it the father's...

    Our relationship was strictly physical.

    We promised that our "relationship" wouldn't be more than this, but the truth is, the only reason we started this "friends with benefits" arrangement was because we both knew that we had feelings for each other... Now I can't stop thinking about him, and he can't stop thinking...

    Me and my senior, my first kiss,

    the first person who I let in completely, the guy who encouraged my spiteful side and turned me a little bit mean, the boy who's either going to be a politician or blow up a school, the sociopath who cares so deeply for select few. We split up. I really should be upset, but I...

    He doesn't want to hurt his ex.

    I understand that. I just hope that I don't end up accidentally saying something, accidentally betraying the secret of us. I don't want her finding out. I don't want her hurting because of me.
