    Okay, so um. Last year I dated this kid

    for about six months (I was 13, he 14). I broke up with him because I was stupid and my best friend (at the time) made fun of me because he isn't the most attractive guy. Two months after I broke up with him, we started talking again on Facebook and we are actually getting...

    Stuck In A Rut!

    So I was in a relationship for 9 years. We were good together never argued seriously or anything enjoyed our time together sitting around and doing nothing. He was the one! Our love life was a bit lifeless. It would seem that over the 9 years we went to one concert that was...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love when a "hello" turns into an unexpected friendship. Even better when someone you think you share nothing in common with exposes you to a world of similarities. =)
