    I can't help that he's married. Or that he's my best friend. Or that him and I just add so much to eachothers lives in amazingly deep ways, where other people seem to subtract, you know? I can't even help that he's nice to look at, or that he makes me feel like an amazing human...

    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...

    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...

    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...
