    Everyone's Lonely.

    So I don't have time to be "lonely"  But sometimes I've just got to sit down and feel sorry for myself, that I want someone there. I guess it's my teenage years that just wants a relationship even if it hurts her in the end.       Comment...

    Confusion

    I guess you really didn't care about me. You say you do then you leave when I'm at my lowest. You will wait for me to build myself back up and then come back and ditch when I crash again. It's like a cycle. Gah I love you and that's what is holding me back from letting go. What's...

    Husband Divorcing Me Before We Get to Live Together

    Let's just say that there has been way too much drama in my life the last couple of years.  I had been married to a pretty nice guy for over 15 years, when I contacted my highschool sweetheart.  Should have just never done it. Well, I divorced my first hubby, then...

    I just met a girl this weekend.

    ... She was truly beautiful. We really hit it off and I am now talking to her.... But all I want to do is hold her in my arms. I have never felt this way about a girl before.

    It's cold outside and I'm laying in bed trying

    to stay warm. Images of you smiling and looking into my eyes pop into my head. Tears start run down my face and stinging my cheeks. I miss the warm touch of your hand, those comforting hugs, and the way your soft lips touched mine. Most of all I just miss "YOU" I love you...
