    Work In Progress

    We met about 5 years ago, in elementary school. Since the school was small, we were in all the same classes, and became good friends. I had always thought he was cute, but I certainly wasn't ready to date. As the years went on, I still liked him, and I was pretty sure he liked me...

    Sad But True

    I am single. Very single. But my heart never found its way back to me. It refuses to leave a man I once knew. It doesn't want to come home. Once it does I'm locking it in a cage so it can never get away again. It's so grounded.

    I'm Sorry Lord For The Thing I've Made It

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...

    He Probably Isn't Even Intrested

    Ok, I can't really say my heart is taken, but it is the only thing that fit. Anyway, there is this guy that works at my favorite place to eat in the mall and I really like him, I just don't know if he's interested or if he's single. My friends say that he is interested, because...
