    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...

    "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...

    Valentines day. I mean honestly I know that it's not just about your significant other. It's about everyone you love; friends, family, etc.. But it is absolute torture having to walk around ALL DAY and see the lovey dovey stuff happening between couples. It's like "Dude. Stop." I...

    Used To

    Maybe I offend the delicate sensibilities of the female gender at large, maybe I am too nice, too good or too honest and open. I really could not tell you why I am still single. Some would say I am aggressive, whereas I would call it ambitious and determined. Others will say - I...

    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 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.
