    There Is Just Something About You...

    ...that makes me want to jump you as soon as I see you. I don't know what it is. Our chemistry isn't electric, or even firey or passionate; but maybe *magnetic* would be the right word. I can't even remember the last time I saw you... well, I can't remember *when* it was, but I...

    Making a Choice - Changing From Lover to Friend

    I have had a lover for about 9 months. When we met - we were both married, both in bad relationships, both needed something. We clicked - we spent time together when we could, and I have to say - it was much more than I thought it would be. A lot of the stories I...

    Stuck In A Rut!

    Not As I Am Now

    I of course am only saying this to real life females. I am more than capable of being friends online and stuff. Anyway, it is nothing personal ladies, but I have to be sexually satisfied first. I think it has to be that way for most men. Those men out there who are sexually...

    Being "just friends" is hard.

    I do have a "just friend" in my life, and it's weird. Down through the years, people have accused us of being more... not that I wouldn't like to, but I don't think her hubby would like that very much. LOL I would like to break through the friend zone with my other female...

    This guy and I have been having this

    complicated relationship since April 2013. I haven't told anyone about it. Sometimes we're friends, sometimes we're more. Lately, we've been having sex and stuff and I don't know if he wants to stay friends and **** or if he wants to be more. I don't know what to do

    Not My Choice, Their Descision. No Negotiation, Second Opinion.

    Long ago - not so far away - I learned its not my descision. They like me as a friend - nothing more. Funny, helpful, safe, loads of time listening -all the right things just not the right person. That was not their descision. She was not being cruel - just honest. Kind. Yes kind...

    I wish I had no friends. Because it's not worth it to entertain people who pretend to like you. I'm sure not every person hates me but maybe that wouldn't be so bad.
