    So here is the story.

    I am 36yrs old, back in april I met a girl who had just turned 19 a few days earlier. She said she liked my motorcycle and I offered her a ride and she accepted. We rode around a bit and I asked her if she wanted to have dinner and she said sure. We spent the whole summer...

    I Wish She Were Mine, But...

    I met this....I would like to think....this perfect girl about a year ago. She's everything a guy could want. Beautiful, smart, and really caring. We talk often and she listens to me whenever I have a problem. She gives me advice and helps me overcome my issues. She really makes...

    Enough is enough

    I really need to get this off my chest as its tearing me apart. I've know this girl for over a year. We became good friends and spoke eveyday, and I quickly fell for her. I've told her I love her, many times. Her reaction is always to question me about it, she will ask me "why do...

    It's An Innate Tendency

    I do believe that human beings tend to gravitate to those who we can't have. Especially when we feel connected to a person and want them in our lives for the long haul. It's an interesting thing, because those who fancy us and give us attention, we tend not to want.I know that in...

    It's been over a year

    since she left. She had become my best friend. She could build me up or tear me down with a single look. For 7 years I tried to make her happy. In the end, she told me I did not know how to love her. She was wrong...I loved her with all of my heart. I was thinking the other day...

    I am thinking of you.

    As I often do. I often wonder if you think of me too. Did you sleep well? Did you eat? Are you happy? Well are you? I would love nothing more then to wake up to you every single day. Until my days are taken away. I often get caught up in my fantasies of you. Silly me for ever...

    We are both attached

    and hard, butterflies in tummy, he makes me feel. I havent felt alive in a while. He makes everything just that much better. Doesnt matter if it ends today, tomorrow, in a week, month, or a year. Right now he is mine and that is all that matters. Enjoy the time. ♡

    Yes I hate being alone with my thoughts.

    That's because I either overthink or worry too much, but at the end of the day, can I get much out of it? No. Overthinking is not the answer. I know it's tremendously stupid for me to fall in "love" with a teacher when it's more like an infatuation. And I was correct. It was...

    Every time we speak, he finds different ways of

    saying goodbye. Last we spoke, it was "hugs and hugs and hugs" (in European languages). He always leaves me wanting and more curious about him. By far, he is the most unattainable man I could ever fall for but I suppose that makes me so drawn to him aside from his looks and...

    It's hard being in love with someone you know you can never have. It's even worse when you have to force yourself to let go and move on. And being "just friends" doesn't make anything better. Even though you know you can give them all the unconditional love you have in your...
