    I have been in love with a man

    for 4 years now..I truly believe it is the only time in my life that I have felt this strongly about a man..we are friends...he knows I love him, he cares about me and has feelings of love for me but is not in love with me. I am so attached to him, I know it is in my best...

    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...

    I feel this connection with an actor I don't

    personally know. It feels weird but my intuition is telling me I will be with him. The same exact thing happened with my ex. He's a well known musician. I didn't know him at all but I just had this feeling deep inside I would meet him someday. Well a few months passed and I came...

    I still think about her almost everyday

    and I still wonder if she thinks about me at all. But it doesn't hurt very much any more. I hope she is happy.

    Well I had an affair.

    Yes I'm sure there will be critics out there but until you walk in my shoes keep it to yourself! I did not mean to fall for him. I only meant to have some uncomplicated fun and substitute what was missing in my marriage. Well with receiving daily texts for over a year and a...

    It sucks doesn't it. Liking someone you can't

    have.. Seeing them everyday, but knowing that they'll never be yours.. It's the worst feeling, cause all you can do is dream about and wish for them, but never have them..

    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...

    I know it'll never happen

    but I can't help it. He's so lovely and I have do much desire for him. I want to give into my lust and wrap my arms round his neck, kiss him and feel all of him. I find it weird after all I've been through to have those feelings. I go through phases where I avoid speaking to...

    I have been in love with this one girl

    for over a year now. We were and still are quite good friends but I always thought we could be more. She knows I like her this way and I know she only wants to be friends but I can't accept it.

    He's turning 50. He's having a birthday party.

    Without me... Yup, you guessed it. I'm not over him. He's free to do whatever with whomever. It's my fault for falling again. Disaster!!! Ugh.....MEGA UGH!!!!!

    He's my best friend. I tell him everything

    and he tells me everything. We are so close. I feel he is my soulmate. I love him and he has told me he loves me. He is married. I would never encourage him to leave his wife. I do the opposite. Remind him to buy his wife birthday gifts. Take her to dinner. Make her...

    It's a hard feeling to know

    that it won't happen yet knowing that loving them means you'll be there for them no matter what. I can't figure out how to shut off the pain.

    My One And Only

    and was not prepared at all for meeting new people. However, the first day I walked into the doors of the band room and saw him sitting there, I knew I would love him forever. I even got to sit next to him when I stayed for the day. Ever since that day, I have cared for him and...

    to dream? to feel someone's presence [after much absence], so strongly that it stays with you, long after you have awoken. to experience something so vivid that it's almost as if it really happened, in another time and place. What is
