    I've liked this guy for almost 2 years.

    We used to work together. He has been married this whole time and I've tried my best to respect his marriage and not to come on too strong. We've never even discussed my feelings for him, but he does know they exist. In late January, I found out he's going through a divorce and...

    Driving Myself Crazy In Love With An Older Man

    Somehow I've found myself in love with a man 20 years older than me. He's a friend I see quite regularly. I met him around 7 years ago now, and was always attracted to him, which I found odd cos I knew he was older and at the time I was around 20 and he's not your obviously...

    Willing To Wait.

    I am in love with my best friend. There. I said it. That is the first time I have expressed that out loud in any form. I met him 3 1/2 years ago. For me, it was love at first sight. We have spent hours upon hours talking, getting to know one another from a socially proper...

    I'm In Love With A Married Man...

    I met a man online who just happens to live near me. We've seen the same things, we know some of the same people but have never met. The problem is he is trapped in a loveless marriage. I don't know what to do and it's not easy to think about just forgetting about my feelings. We...

    I'm in love with my health teacher.

    I've always found him attractive and his personality is seemingly perfect... But not until this year, have I realized that I truly have feelings for my teacher. Sounds weird huh? I have dreams with him in them and everything. I'm 17, turning 18 very soon; he's probably 26? Not...

    Its So Possible.

    Is it even worth asking if they're married? Which beeegggggs the question... Is it even worth bothering to date you? I can pretty much guarantee 90% of men aren't serious or worth it. Not that they're bad. They just more than likely aren't being honest. It's boring. I...

    It's Frustrating

    It's frustrating how I always seem to fall in love with them. Well, it's not actually "in love", I don't know him well enough for that. But I'm definitely crushing on him. He's a tutor on my college and he's three times as far away as anyone else... He hardly knows that...

    Him

    I was in love with someone I couldn't have. Everyday it killed me. Almost every day I had to see his face, his handsome face. His hazel eyes, that perfect smile and that sexy little bit of stubble on his chin. I was in pieces as I wrote this. I wanted him so much, I needed him so...

    When he merely glances in my direction my heart

    bursts in to flames. He leaves my lips dry and parched, longing for his to be paired with, to go home to another who believes she loves him more than I . And I concede, perchance she believes she dose. I know in my heart that when our eyes met for the first time, our souls...
