    I am falling in love with a man who is not only married but not in my country.  I am not wanting advice because I am only sharing.  Sometimes I wish I could meet him in person and really get to know him, and other times I am so glad I am single and free of the...

    He's from the US, I am from Canada.

    We've been talking for almost a year now. It's crazy because neither of us were looking for anything. In fact, we both fought against it for so long because we knew it would be so hard and neither of us were used to online relationships at all. But we ended up falling in love...

    There's Too Much On His Plate And I Need Time Alone.

    I've never been in this situation - I care deeply for him, and he cares deeply for me yet I cannot have him, at least not for now. I met a man in the summer and I fell in love with him. We broke up two months ago because he has a ton of baggage: 3 kids, (2 are preteen girls), 2...

    Too Far Away

    I recently realized that I am in love with a good friend of mine - and it's breaking my heart. He is amazing. Charming, funny, ambitious, always there for his parents, always there for me. It doesn't hurt that he also has a voice that makes me quiver and just brushing his finger...

    Not Destined.

    So, we've liked each other for over a year now, almost 2 years this year. He's the kind of person I never thought I'd fall for, my friends would say he's not my 'type.' But there's something about him that makes me feel attractive towards him. And vice versa. I'm not his type...

    No Words Can Best Describe My Feeling.

    EVERRR... I love him. He loves me. But…… we can’t be together. Because I am already committed to someone else. And the worst part, I can't let him go. The title says it all. :(
