    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...

    My One And Only

    Hes my ideal partner. Someone I want to be with so badly. We started off as friends but it developed into admiration and much love. He's the one I want to spend forever with. We share everything in common and can talk for hours on end. His little neurotic habits are kind of...

    We are both attached

    and happy but there is a spark I feel with her that is undeniable. This relationship can never happen and I just want it off my chest even if it is to a bunch of strangers that are pretending to be women. Neither of us have so much as hinted at our feelings but nothing needs to...

    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..

    missing him is killing me.

    I want to see him and feel his arms around me again. but I know it will never happen. I know that what we had was all a lie. I am still so in love with him. I try to just keep moving on.

    I am... I have been having an affair

    for about nine months now. I hate admitting on here because I know what people will say, but I'm totally in love with him. I know that wasn't suppose to happen. He was just going to make me feel wanted and I was going to see him a couple of times a week for sex and that be it...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    but it's still just the same. I am so in love with someone who stumbled into my life and quickly became one of my best friends in a matter of months. I confessed to him when it was just a crush, and soon after realized it was so much more than that. He makes me happier than...

    Kisses

    There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shore no matter how many times it is sent away......... ...........and so love never expires in my heart no matter how many times I tell my soul to turn away.

    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...

    He makes me happy, my heart beat fast,

    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. ♡
