    What is a long term relationship?

    I've been single since forever.. Basically my whole life save for one month and a week. I remember back in high school always wanting to date but I either fell for the guy who was the player or who was just not interested in me. And guys have liked me but I'm just so picky...

    I Don't Know Why...

    There's a common thought that if your thirty-whatever years old, never married, single and have no kids, there must be something wrong with you.  Well, that's me, and that's probably a bunch of people on here too, I don't know. I feel so sad I'm off to see my doctor...

    Nonetheless A Born Gentleman (vent)

    Why is it that in my generation, I have to be penalized for being a gentleman. At least thats what it seems. I've heard of what girls were "looking" for, usually Im the one they come and tell after they've had a fight with "john or hakeem". No offense to the johns or hakeem's out...

    I Feel Like I Should Quit Looking For My Soul Mate

    I don't understand why life can be so silly! I have been blessed in some ways and yet feel like I have also been cursed. I fell so in love in high school and married my high school sweetheart. I gave him a son and daughter. We were married for 13 years, however, i discovered he...

    Want To Know

    I would love for people to tell me upfront what they want to accomplish rather than leave me hanging and disappointed;all it leads to is future discouragement. If they don't want to communicate to let me know and not forever wondering.

    "Too Together..." Um, Ok

    That's what I've had people say to me, that I'm too "together" for guys and they're intimidated. I've had people say to me that men are intimidated when a woman is smarter than them or when she shows that she's independent. To me, that's completely insane. But I suppose that's...
