    How Did This Happen??!!

    OK, here it goes....... I'm a married man, my wife (in my opinion) is very beautiful, OUTSIDE, she can be (not as often as I would like, or need) very sweet, kind, affectionate, fun, outgoing ..... But more often than not, she's just snotty, a bit rude, quick to snap.....I tell...

    This SUCKS! - 30 years of hiding my sexuality.

    So I decide "fcuk it, life is too short and precious to waste!" I start following my natural desires which lead me to a man who makes me feel those special feelings that are more than carnal lust - well I can't express my feelings and have to be secretive because he has a...

    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...

    I am desperately in love with someone I can

    NEVER have. I look up at the sky and think over and over again- why do I even exist in this selfish, cynical world? Tears of frustration and anxiety always well up in my eyes because of him. We crave for handful of attention. We try to look the very best just for our loved ones...

    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...

    This lady is much, much younger

    than I am. Although I'm sure there are couples with this age difference, I don't see it happening in our case. So, after some long consideration, I find that while she is indeed attractive (looks a bit like Zooey Deschanel) and has a very fit, petite body, it is not those...

    Woke up from a dream,

    I wish was real. Now I feel this heaviness in my heart, from getting a taste of what I wish could be. Only to have it ripped away when I woke up, coming back to reality realizing it will never be. It shouldn't be this hard, why can't let this go..

    Wish He Was Mine

    Would it make any difference

    if I said I loved you? Because I do, and no physical distance or social barriers are going to change that. The only thing that matters is what changes between us should I ever tell you that I love you. Would we be better for it, or worse? Or does it even matter anymore? If...

    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. ♡

    But I am still in love with him. I am not sure if it was a good or bad change in me. But I feel like I might lose you if you knew. I've always been cursed with a bad life and it just seems to be getting worse for me. I don't know what to do.
