    He's Just Not That Into Me

    This post might make me seem conceited but I promise you that I am not. Just noting my good points and venting. Anyway, here goes nothing... I've been single for a year and a half. Prior to that I had been in a long term, four year relationship. My ex broke it off by ignoring my...

    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...

    I'm a good guy. I'm nice,

    I'm caring, I'm funny, I'm giving, I'm living, I can be intimate, I don't crave sex 24/7, I love kisses, tight hugs, and cuddling, I give all I am if I love you, and lastly, I've been told somewhat frequently I'm not too bad looking by friends, and insanely damn hot by ex...

    I'Ll Love Later

    People don’t much understand why, To love I am not willing to try. They keep on insisting me to take the bite, Of the apple that brings passion and delight. Urging me that to men I should never be choosy, Just avail on what they offer and never be bossy. Pushing me to attract...

    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...

    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...

    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...
